    1. The author’s choice of twelve nuggets of wisdom would have been fine if he had stopped after presenting the list, per se, in the opening pages. Unfortunately the rambling, cliché-loaded litany of “I believe”s is not equivalent to wisdom. The writing is full of awkward sentence structure and grammar, and assertions without proof. I received this book as a Giveaway and its haphazard nature made me wonder if it was a first draft to test a small segment of public response. I would quote exam [...]
