Disappointing, just a money grab

Most of this is pretty standard advice. Not a lot of new here. Found this a disappointment from Dr. Newport as his other books are so good. I imagine he sat down with his publicist and thought, "What else can I easily jot down just to make some cash?" I mean, come on, make your bed? Seriously?
