I really want to use iBooks rather than my Kindle, but Apple come on sort out your frankly stupid pricing model. Why would I pay over £3 more to buy a book that I can just read in the Kindle App on my iPad?
Great book :)
Interesting tips backed up by solid research
Now I know that happy people smile...but I didn't know that smiling can make you happier! What about rewarding your kids' with praise? It's better to award them for their efforts not for some innate talent they can't live up to. So in summary there are lots of really interesting, often psychological, explanations explored in this book for making the best out of things. I'd thoroughly recommend it!
