3.0 out of 5 stars Great short read.
By tomjono on 18 October 2019
Having absolutely loved the last book (I read it twice !!) I had to have this one too. Really good read and I’d recommend it if you’ve got a spare hour. I mean literally an hour or two. It’s a tiny 142 pages. I think paying nearly the price of a proper book is a bit steep. I’m a tiny 5’ woman with little hands (see picture for reference) Can’t blame him for cashing in in the success of the last book but I’ve read longer articles!!
