At the time the first book came out, I sounded like a complete beginner.

People listening are like ‘hey, how the exgreme can he do that? I know that on my posts minnsmann which book would I suggest would usually be the first one that I advise form some time is Marco Minnemann’s Extreme Interdependence book.
