I won this on a goodreads give away.
For now I've only given this book 3 stars because I'm not 100% sure how I found this book. I enjoyed it, and got through it in a few hours. I plan on re-reading this book so I can give a more thorough review. A lot of it is very relevant, which adds to the enjoyment, although some I got a bit confused about. We'll see how the second reading goes!
