If you want a powerful and thought provoking book that is a quick read I highly recommend "Notes from a friend". The book was designed and written for those experiencing tough times and challenges. If you are a fan of Anthony Robbins you will quickly recognize his positive attitude free flowing from this book. He takes many of the ideas and concepts from his other top selling books and pulls them into this book. This is like a mini "Awaken The Giant Within" that can be read within an hour or less. The book is not new but during the time when the housing market is getting blasted by the media on a very regular basis this book might be the encouragement we need.
