Dissolves resistance like magic powder
With a clever play on the classic title : The Art of War , this book helps us overcome procrastination in an original and inspiring way . I bought it initially to motivate me to write; it actually helped me to lose three and a half stones at the gym. It's key advice , I feel, is to adopt a professional
attitude towards whatever you do.

What's with these summaries?
I really don't understand the purpose of these summaries. This is the second time I've wasted money on a summary of a book that I wanted to actually listen to. I know it says "Book summary" at the back there, but why would I as a customer have to be looking out for "fake" versions of the book? When I'm searching AND PAYING for something I'm excited about I should simply be assured that I'm getting the real thing. A half hour reading of a summary isn't worth anything, and it SHOULD NOT BE on the same list as the actual book, as if it even compares in any way! It's just total bullshit and in my opinion just a way of tricking people into buying shit they don't want. Really bad customer service.Just put these shitty little summaries somewhere else please.

While I thoroughly enjoyed this reading, when I bought this I thought it was the actual book and not the summary notes. Looking back now it's clear that it was supposed to be a summary. Can't wait to read the entire book
