I thought this would reference topics from the books Richard Carlson wrote and take appropriate sections from his work. Sort of a daily "top up" of his advice. It doesn't and therefore was a major disappointment. The writings on each date are not even in the same style as Mr Carlson's books. I'm not sure whether they're taken out of context but to me, it appears they have no association with his work at all. Having read the trilogy of his "Don't Sweat..." titles, I could not recognize any of his writing style or insight in the words on the calendar. This was more like the worst kind of self-help rubbish out there.
