couldnt put it down

5

I couldn't put this book down until the end It was recommend to me by my best friend who had heard Dean Hawkins in an interview, she then went and bought his book, at first I was somewhat hesitant to read another supposed self-help book. And yet almost immediately I found the authors journey, story and advice captivating, I could not put it down. I have since benefitted and both personally and professionally by applying the suggested fire department methods of structured, preparedness and as the author puts it `fighting the righteous fight` . I recommend this read to multiple friends.
