Excellent! For any anyone who wants to get better.

The book is written in a style that dies not bore you. The narrator manages to keep you engaged listening to to a subject you could easily get tired listening to or reading. The book version allows for more contemplation along the way. A good find.

I enjoyed the book version

I read the book version and decided I needed to review it as it’s been a while. This book was a great reminder of steps I’ve already been taking and where I need to improve upon them! I’ve been tracking what I do each day for sometime now and I will change it to include what I need to get accomplish each day! I’ve ban lacking in some area’s and this book has shown me that I need to pick up the slack! I always put people first and I see the benefits as the author stated we would. However, I’m careful not to become a doormat which has cost me dearly! As you go through this book do the lessons and revisit it in a few months for a refreshers course!
