I frankly don't know what would I have done with myself during these painful times without this book. Whether you are sticking together or separating, you need this objective point of view.

Only the VPL knows the dozens of times I checked this book out and the late fees in which I incurred.

So thankful that I had access to it and I hope it helps others too as much as it helped me survive.
