Have you read it?

I don't mind downloading it if it's worth it. Errr...I guess you think it's worth it, otherwise you wouldn't have posted it :eek:

It's a huge download but you can also bookmark the URL and read it online.

This is an update recently moved to it's own website. I read parts of it perhaps 5 years ago (?) and thought it was an excellent resource then. Have a look at the online version and see what you think.

I too have just bookmarked the link and will read it online when I get a chance. At first when I looked at the index it felt overwhelming to me with so much information but I was wondering if I could just read the chapters that I feel pertain to me in any order or does it have to be read front to back without jumping around?

Thanks for the post Dr. B.....great resource.

I think the chapters were intended by the author as resources that would (more or less) stand alone, so reading only those sections that interest you or seem relevant to you should work. I think the original intention of the book was a sort of encyclopedia of self-help that people could use as a resources and reference.
