Review:

"It's my angry belief that most self-help and education book writers get paid by the word. Three and four hundred page books that could have been done better in 50 pages. Not so with "The Skinny On" series. These books kick rears and take names. Using entertaining writing, stick figure drawings and a comic book style layout, they use simple stories to quickly convey valuable information. Highly recommended. Author Jim Randel has created one of the best, most interesting series I've seen in a very long time." --Mercury News. The Silicon Valley Newspaper

"Who would have thought a book with stick-people illustrations could be so weighty? This one caught me off guard - tons of substance in a fun-filled one-hour read. I am very happy that someone persuaded me to read this book!" --Mike Goss, Managing Director, Bain Capital
