"Having a ready answer to our questions is imperative. Having an answer that we can understand is crucially important. Having comments and hints from others with a similar problem allows us to see ourselves. Having a summary of key points helps us focus. Being informed and educated is imperative if we are to make a change. It removes the fear of the unknown and the anxiety of uncertainties and allows us to move forward with strength in the knowledge that we, with the help of others, can make a difference. This book will allow you to do that!"
