Good Information but turned off by all of the self-promotion of his own publishing company and books and friends. I got the feeling this was really about "look at all my other stuff". I personally was looking more for the actual process of puttting together the information for a book. He touches on it but I wanted more "detail, such as putting together the chapters- relating them etc As advertised: It is only an inspirational piece..
