very work minded

this is a great book with some good technics, however most of them are very much aimed at the workplace and can be hard to convert into everyday life because of this.

further the book seems to have been written in sections since some concepts are presented as new and explained more than once.

still I will be going through this book more than once to try and get past some of my procrastination.... tomorrow :)


Steve does an excellent job of narrating, he doesn't do anything fancy or try to make this book special. he gives us the information the best way he can without being monotonous and without getting in the way of the book by trying to make it more than a factual piece of literature
