8. protect yourself from the Mystic BourgeoisieThe problem with this last one is that it's a magnet for every New Age piece of trash on the site. You'll see what I mean if you go there and check the right column. This guide hit #1 across all of Amazon the second day it was up, but has since fallen to #8.

Otherwise, please do visit and click the button. Thnx.
