So, you have to get up at 5 o’clock tomorrow morning? Tough, but how about this: there’s a person who gets up at 2 a.m., every day. It’s the early bird that catches the worm, and for the author, rising at this early (or perhaps very late?) hour has been the secret to changing from an ordinary housewife-and-mom to a professional simultaneous interpreter who can do everything she sets out to do. Read this book, and you too will be put under the spell of her extraordinary lifestyle.
