Hey, I very much enjoyed this, and I loved the way you laid the book out. It feels as though you've thought about the e-format, and giving your readers a pleasurable experience.

I approach books like this with a high degree of scepticism, but Anne has succeeded in producing a book that is thoroughly researched and utterly grounded. It treads that fine lin between stating the obvious and offering advice that no one short of a saint could stick to.

This is a marvellous piece of post-slacker Beat-style prose that draws the reader in and keeps them in its languid grasp till the end. Marvellous
