Initially, I thought I'd do a little reading list to share with you all but what's the point of that without some context and also without giving you a glimpse of the book so that you can decide whether or not to read it yourself.
Mind you this is not just a book that you read, it's one of those you study, you put down, you come back to and keep repeating the steps until you begin to see positive and healthy changes in your life.
I'll definitely be doing more of these and hopefully you'll enjoy them - let me know if you've read this book and what was your experience like?
