It’s just the right length.There’s only one main point to it,and you aren’t spending most of the space trying to sell some service or product. Thank you for being so generous from learnings in your experience.”

“The book had a ‘spiritual’ and ‘joyful’ element that made me feel more balanced after reading it. The advice is powerful and doable. The day after reading this book, I had a meeting with a ‘difficult’ board member. Thinking about giving her something rather than thinking about how to make her change her annoying behavior made me deal with her differently. The meeting went well and I feel we know each other better as people.”
