Did you find any in that list that make you say "Hey, now, wait a minute . . ."? I did, and several others Some of these brief chapters are lighthearted, some more serious. Calling this book a real education is an understatement.
Leah Eden3 Stars Out Of 5November 15, 2008Leah EdenThis book was interesting, but didn't provide a lot of facts to back up some of it's claims. It's a light read.
Bonnie1 Stars Out Of 5September 21, 2008BonnieThis is one of the biggest disappointments I've read. I felt is was very "opinion based". It was irratating. I have read several of these types of books and this was by far, the most disappointing.
