this book, probably as for many others has become the handbook for my life. :]
although...i was disappointed to see that many of these things were HIGHLY unlikely and out of my control such as "wake up next to Brad Pitt" or whatever. Boo. lol ...more

A super quick read. Took me about an hour to complete the book and check off things I've done so far.

There are some things however they could have done better as they are a little unrealistic, but for the most part its a lot of... ...more

...there's a lot I need to add to this book. But it's a good starting point. I can pleasantly remember a few nights I got to check off some boxes... ...more
