"Theres not a book telling me how to do this!" I shout in defeat. .
"Theres not?" My 6 year old asks, riddled with shock. .
But there is a book. There are LOTS of books. Arguably too many even. Because for every book that tells you to do one thing there are 100 more telling you not to. The worst part? They're all supported by data, stats, evidence and fact. How can that be? .

Tonight I'm burning the fucking book.
