Basically, you need a plan, and you want it fast."This book is designed to answer the questions that I have been asked over and over again by students. Each key concept is linked to one of Aesop's Fables to make it easy to remember. The writing is deliberately simple and practical. I'm convinced that if you apply the concepts, you'll do a good job." -Eileen K. Van Kavelaar, AuthorYou have the road map in your hands: follow this book. Fill in the worksheets as you progress.
