It took my months to find this book, every book store in the area was sold out for the longest time, and I was so relieved when I finally found it.
This book made me really think about my family and some of there bad habits. I am intending on purchasing this book for my brothers and I hope that it helps them realise a few things.
I would recommend this book to anyone, although it is not for the weak of heart. It has some moment where you think to yourself "how could anyone survive that!"
