Learning how to cook, or make crafts or even how to start a hobbie is one thing. But to use a self help book to llearn the psychology of the mind of people or the workings of a computer, that’s just impossible. The topics they cover in this series is extremely diverse and never ceases to surprise me what they can come up with. This book is enjoyable to read, and has enough wit to sustain the reader’s stamina.
