I teach WordPress web design online, focusing on the *design* part - and fun:) I love learning new concepts, hence all these audiobooks;)
This is one crazy interesting book! It's long yes. And some reviewers find it way too long.
Me? I find it amazingly well-written, well-edited and deep. Daniel explores various concepts and elegantly connects them in a brilliant fashion.
This is one of those book I hope will never end. Each minute is packed full of info. No fluff in this book.
Beware though: the book does talk a lot about the various regions of the human brain, their interconnectedness and role in various situations related to procrastination, productivity, organisation, etc. So if you'd rather like a lighter read, this book probably isn't for you.
But if you like books with more substance, ones that challenge you, and have perhaps read and enjoyed Your Brain at Work: this book will be a surprisingly good listen for you.
This book is short and somewhat comprehensive, yet still very concise and structured. Timothy is a wonderful speaker and narrator. One can't feeling rapport with him.
Key takeaway from the book:
Don't give in to feel good now. Do the work now – and feel good later.
It's one of those books that despite being simple, is one I'm looking forward to relistening to again, in a few months.
This is one of those rare books that really isn't like any other book out there. And "out there" it is. Dain is a radical thinker. He has an interesting view on life and us as human beings.
I agree with most of his words – and he covers a lot in this book. But... I somehow got disturbed by his story of being molested as a child. Not the incident(s) itself, but rather the way he has ended up coping with it (which I won't spell out here). Basically it's one of acceptance ... Maybe it's just me, but I felt his take on it was absurd. You gotta hear it to know what I mean.
The narration, by Dain himself, is top-notch.
Oh, and then there's the affirmation / mantra he's repeating over and over throughout the book... Kinda disturbing – feels redundant / superfluous – but hey: I can live with it.
All in all worth a listen.
