The Bottom Line

  Must Have
Price as of this writing: $24.97

This was long the top selling eBook on ClickBank, and is number two as of this writing. I believe this honor is well deserved. I haven't yet figured out exactly how I'm going to put this book's advice into practice myself, but then I just finished reading it. It will take some though and some work up front, but it already feels like the beginning of something big. I'll update this review with more comments as the future unfolds.
