Simple, easy, effective

Words of wisdom that are simply put and easy to understand. Everyone will understand the short messages and be awakened slightly differently. They are great messages to keep coming back to in times of confusion or turmoil.

Lazy Delivery

The delivery of this book is bad. It’s not set up like most books available through the iBook store.

It’s cumbersome to navigate.

It’s too bad because I’m certain it’s full of useful wisdom; but, in its current format, it’s a missed opportunity.
