Have you ever been reading a book and thought to yourself, “Why am I reading this?” For me, this was that book. I wasn’t particularly excited about it, but I was hooked enough keep picking it up. And for the first time in a long time, I was more excited about a book itself being over than I was about finding out what would happen at the end of it.
Since there are so many ways and so many areas in which we can make mistakes, the author had lots of latitude when writing this book. What it led to is a book that is overflowing with information, some of it interesting and some of it not so much.
I will admit that although it is a lot of information, much of it is eye opening and some of it is alarming. Someone told me that we should not be afraid to seek counsel because most mistakes are made by people that know what they’re doing. This book supports that notion.
In summation, if you’re human you will make mistakes. And this book has the potential to make you paranoid about that.
