Thank you for being so supportive of my book.
I recently read this book, and while reading it, it was blatantly clear how much John Crossman cares about the success of the reader. His genuine desire to spread knowledge and prevent others from ruining their careers and lives is apparent by the real-life examples he employs and the accessible language with which the book is written. Even though Mr. Crossman is an accomplished man as evidenced by the article above, he does not use this book to further elevate himself. I would recommend this book to practically anyone because sooner or later (if your not an heir) you will need an occupation. This book will ensure you will have the tools at your disposal to equip you to perform your best along your career journey
