I am always in the hunt for a good book. This book has been referenced to in one of the seminars I attended. Since then, I've always been curious about it.

This book was the perfect gift given by my close girl friends during my baby boy's last rite. I am guessing they did not know what to tell me because no note was written on the front page where you usually place little memo. I appreciated it.

When I got home, I started reading the first few pages but did not have the strength and composure to continue. So, I dropped it.

There's no point of hating really. Just be grateful you were plucked out of it. You play with fire and you sure will get burned.
