This book came with so much praise from people I don’t know, including from one of the writer’s direct colleague, that it must be good…one would have thought. It even comes with its own website, where you read an additional chapter 10 for free. So I had a go at it, and this effort really falls into the category “I’ve read it so you don’t have […]
