just nine tips

The narrating of this book is very good however the length and detail are lacking. this book is short and incomplete. the nine ideas are great but there needs to be more detail and examples for the listener to be able to grasp the concepts that are explained.

straight to the point!

I use this and other books like it to sit in an evening and take notes on what to do. This book is great for that. Although free of any embellishment and meager on idea expansion, I now feel like I can move in a confident direction in this field. And it only took 1 hour. I will continue to look for these types of books since this one was so helpful!
