I always have a limitation belief that each people have a talent and that in this challenging world, never try to fight in the area of your weakness. After years of stagnation, I feel that something in me went wrong. I believe that I should change. This book really show you how to do it and become the master learner, adapting quickly to what is needed. I used to be only a sales executive in my company, handling my customer problem and give solution to them. Nowadays, I have made a website for my company, learning to use SEO to breakthrough new ground of sales. Next, I am learning to create apps on my own. I am sure that if I find and problem on the way, I would refer back to this book. Wish that I will got a chance to meet Erika Andersen in the future. Thanks a lot for this great books!!
