The hardcover book has good de
sign with color pages, and good easy flow.
Definitely a must buy, if you liked "Two Guys on Your Head" podcast.
The first question in this book is "Does being open to experience lead to success".
And, the same question arises whenever i come across a new book .. whether my investment of money and time is worthy?
W.r.t BrainBriefs... it was 100% worth for me. Glad i read this.
Delivery was on time, quality of the book is fabulous.
