The Ebook includes great information and reference materials. It is not a downloadable document - and over 70 pages to read. I would have preferred to download and enjoy highlighting and jotting down notes for future reference. It includes great research information. It is a read only program - no videos.

The information was great. A con is that it had a lot of studies that may not have been necessary to include or could be perceived as "boring" to some. I wish we were able to download the PDF to go back to for reference.

great content, but wordy. a lot of data..
