Glad it was free

Couldn't get past the second chapter and turned this off after Sharp repeated himself once too often when suggesting Google becomes your new best friend. "Don't know how to do something? No excuses! just google it!" was his mantra. What's the point in downloading the book? There was nothing new or interesting.

A Good Reminder

Nothing said that we don't already know, but that's the thing - we know. We just need a reminder sometimes.
