This is a review a person left about my manifesto on Amazon a couple of days ago, ouch! To be perfectly honest with you when I saw it I was mad. I have read so many good blog posts and books about how to deal with rejection, I wrote a post about it a couples of days ago, so you would think I would brush this off and keep going.
