I was with my daughters in one of the many wonderful libraries in the city of Buenos Aires when the simple white covered book with a red star right on the center caught my attention. This was about 2 years ago. I read, “EXITO, UNA GUIA EXTRAORDINARIA” (don’t know the title in English, but it means SUCCESS, A GUIDE TO AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE by the Auth ...more
