  • It sounds simple. The trick is learning how to apply these laws in your everyday life—and international bestselling author and noted life coach, Talane Miedaner shows you how. This easy-to-follow guide provides a comprehensive quiz to help you identify your top four emotional needs and includes step-by-step instructions for meeting those needs.
