Do not recommend

Really regret this purchase. Content was so dry that it was difficult to pay attention. I found out in 2nd to last chapter the author had committed infidelity and felt as if I had wasted so much time listening to anything he had to say. Glad he learned something from it but I have no respect for that and definitely wish I had saved my money!
