42 Rules for Driving Success With Books: Success Stories of Corporate and Author Thought Leadership
This book is reminiscent of junk mail that entices a reader to buy more based upon repetitive success stories and promises to show the secrets that 'they' don't want you to know. Each spurious rule (eg. …
