Disappointing

Lots of fluff, lots of unnecessary and irrelevant statistics; lack of practical hints or advice. Disappointing listen; would not buy it again.

A good read

I enjoyed listening to this, although certain points aren't applicable to me right now (kids) I often worry that with my job in finance and my ungodly hours how I would manage with kids.

Laura V. made some interesting points that has changed my perspective on how I think about time.
