    At first I thought this book was overpriced, but I checked and I actually save 99cents getting it from ZaReason. It's 49.99 retail. I'd rather buy from a company like ZaReason than any of the other companies, so I bough from them.

    It's smaller than I realized, deceptively small. It wasn't until I started using it that i realized it packed more punch than I first thought. The trick is to stick it in your pocket so you can have it handy when you need it. I found that I learned a lot by reading bits of it during spare moments (waiting for a meeting to start, waiting on a customer, eating lunch)

    It's well-written and dense with information.
