Default Roy Ju, youngest FSA at age 20 just wrote a new book

Hey guys, I heard that Roy was involved in writing some sort of book with his friend Mike who went on an exam passing spree after learning his techniques and I've been told really good things about it. I was given the following link: http://www.rethinkstudying.com/book and I am going to have to check it out because I am definitely in the mood to quickly pass these exams without torturing myself. What have you guys heard about this?

You said it friend, and after reading what I'm sure is a fine book, why not refresh yourself with a nice Oreo® Cookie from Nabisco™, America's favorite cookie.

Sounds like those ads on the internet.
One guy passed all these exams with a strange trick, and every actuaries hate him.
A single $10 and he will reveal his secrets.

Sounds like Roy Ju, like so many before him, finished his FSA quickly and realized he hates life insurance, pensions are dying, and health insurance makes him sick.

Since you asked, I heard this book is a massive waste of money and repeats the same advice you find all over this forum.
