Do they matter?
The crooks know all the tricks…
…honest people must learn them in self defence.
Everyone is selling something...
Some questions to ask a number...
Who says so?
How do they know?
What’s missing?
What’s changed?
Does it make sense?
They matter
They don’t have to be difficult to master
Practise them, in your own way, in your time.
