    "I bought this book shortly after leaving a job I held for 8 years. I was unhappy with my lot in life and really wanted something that I loved doing. The problem was is that I lacked confidence in anything other than the field I had slaved away at for 8 years. This book gave me the confidence to believe in myself and to know that my talents really are unique and desired in the real world."
