So finished this one yesterday afternoon at work and cleverly left it there so I couldn't review it yesterday đŸ™ƒ
It's a very dry book with some vaguely helpful advice (which should realistically be common sense) and a whole bunch of outdated advice. An interesting read but too dry and lacking any real personality to be a good one đŸ¤”

Like Machiavelli's The Prince by way of a Spanish priest. #litsypartyofone read #5

Hmmm. It's impossible not to hear Machiavelli when reading this but in a less pleasant way. That's not to say this book isn't interesting it's just very very bitter and manipulative. The Prince was on the edge for me and this was just that step further which makes it difficult to say I enjoyed it but it was interesting

I have a very strong feeling Blatasar GarciĂ¡n was a hardcore Slytherin.
