Each chapter is dedicated to a different group of individuals who have had a positive impact in the author's life. This was originally written as a legacy for his current clients. However, the more he wrote, the more he needed to say. So rather than being a few pages, it developed into this book. The author makes a promise to everyone who responds either by his e-mail or his website that he will answer. However, if the comments are negative in scope, please re-read the book once again to glean the positives :). You may have read dozens of self-help books, and while this book doesn't claim to be superior, one thing is for sure: you certainly won't forget the principles, especially if you apply them to your life.
