Great Book but no PDF
Love this title and worth the purchase. I wish the PDF that is referred to was included. I checked my library per the instructions I found online and still was unable to find it. Would have given this 5 stars if it included the PDF.
A Novel Essay
A coattail riding cliche with the author trying her hardest to salesman her way into your a heart. I wished it was more unique than a student who loves rewriting essays in the form of a self help book. It would be great to receive a refund for such drivel.
Really good material
But how do you download the pdf? I watched videos and read tons of articles to no avail. Even my techie adult son wasn’t able to find the pdf. Annoying.
