Thank you Rick

What a giant. He changed my career. Rest in peace my friend. This book takes all his teachings and summarize s them perfectly. It only pains me to know that he was reading this book while he was barely able to breathe due to the cancer. Thank you Dr. Dufour. We will continue the work.
