My New Book Out Now!

I eat my own cooking. I only advise and write about things I have done myself, and the risks I recommend that others take or avoid were risks I have taken or avoided myself.  This is not to say that personal experience is sufficient to derive a conclusion about a strategy; but one’s personal experience gives the stamp of authenticity. I don't ever want to get advice from someone who never personally experienced what he suggests, who gets the idea by collecting from the Internet and books where the sheer amount of data can make him fall into the trap of believing an idea or thought to be true. I want to hear advice from the one who felt the pain, the sweat, and the success.
