From a Recent 3 Star Review:
“I found the first part of this book complex reading and I really had to slow down while reading to understand fully what was presented, but sticking with it the second part made me ponder a lot of what was being said. This book shares a lot of interesting topics and allows the reader to think outside the box.”
