Key Takeaways:
  1. While the consequences of your negative actions may not be immediately observable, they will always and without exception come back to bite you in some way
What I got out of it:
  1. Really wonderful book and one that I truly enjoyed reading. I thought a lot of the themes are very relative in today’s world and thought Lord Henry Wooton had some really interesting lines and thought he brought up some interesting points. Would definitely recommend
