Let me go straight to the point and confess that I did enjoy the book. I am not going to fool anyone and claim that it’s the best, but honestly this is one of the few books I have read. I was quite an eye opener to read about all the staff the author has been trough and has done.  I have applied some of his recommendations and benefited a lot already. For some of you wanting to read to buy the book, here is short what’s in the book.

The author spent many years just noticing the developments of his own body and mind. He was his own gene pig, he played different role and in the preparation of his book. Like a school boy, Ferris teaches you how to get your classwork done fast so you can go out and play. Ferris is asking the reader to be sceptical and only apply things that you deem practical or necessary in yo life.
