deep stuff, dude. >> it's deep. many of us are caught. a lot of us are caught many debt to be quite honest, whether it be credit card debt or mortgage debt and we feel like we're stuck or stuck in a job we don't enjoy, don't know how to get new skills, new training to break free from that job or relationships with our kids or spouse, et cetera. all this stuff i talk about in the book. i talk about different techniques and prescriptions. i'm not the expert here. i'm just a guy who cultivates information from other people who are much smarter than i am and put it in a book. this is the important book i've written, the best book i've written. i'm hoping it will change people's lives. >> you need to go online and look uphill. there's more to hill than csi and one of the sexist people in the entire universe. you are just a real

renaissance guy. it's a treat having you back on the show. it will be great having you in baltimore. you may want to go down to the pratt and say hi in person. >> if you can't come down to the pratt i set up a website called incarceratedbrother.com. folks choose an issue to give to during the holidays. people say i'm not if prison. you can search state by state prisons on this website with the name of the warden. you can get the book, have it sent directly to the warden, ask them to put it in the prison library and you know you've done something good. at the same time get the book for yourself and read it for yourself. there's a way we can solve these problems if we work together. you know, if you can't can -- ifyou can come out -- if you can come out i'll see you tonight. >> we have to run.
