      Hi Justin,

      Thank you for your email. From your review, this sounds an interesting book that I would consider reading in the near future.

      Your review was interesting and helpful, I like the way you go through everything this book has to offer the reader. So as mentioned above I will definitely consider it, not right now though, as I already have enough things I’m working on at the moment. So instead, I’ll be looking out for your next review on it.

      I just wanted to also say, thank you for your youtube channel, and all that you offer to the youtuber, I am, and have, found it very helpful.

      Kind regards

      Yvonne B.
