“A stunning lesson on how to loosen up.

“This book shows effective, fun ways to release the natural talent that everyone has to help overcome these harmful stalls, both as individuals and as a group.” Donald Mitchell, chairman, Mitchell and Company
“Not only very enjoyable to read, but a necessary training tool...This book is worth reading.” Emory Mulling, president, The Mulling Group
