The Short Drop - Matthew Fitzsimmons - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Short Drop:

The resolution to a decade's long disappearance.

My favorite Matthew Fitzsimmons quote from the book:

"Entitlement breeds laziness, which in turn breeds decline."

Questions I pondered about The Short Drop:

Why do we allow things to haunt us?

Why are politics so tainted?

My review of The Short Drop:

Edge of my seat.


Great fun.
