Books I Didn’t Get Through

Life Force, Tony Robbins – Maybe I will look at this one again, but it bugged me that it was a big commercial for Tony’s health products and investments. There is fascinating and useful information if you can sift through the sales pitches. It felt like if Instagram was a fat book. If it wasn’t a library book I would have been pissed.
