No. The techniques and tips were all obvious and often mutually exclusive. I don't need a book to tell me it might be a good idea to sleep enough so I'm rested, and read things about my chosen field so I know more.
Here's the useful idea from the book: Attack your biggest, most impactful task first, and work on it till it is done. There. Now you don't need to waste your time on the book,

This book was pretty much the abridged version of No Excuses! (Unabridged)
There were no characters in this title.
How to start on big projects that either have complexity to them or are just overwhelming.
This book was pretty much the abridged version of No Excuses! (Unabridged). It goes straight to the point on what to do and why for get started on what you want out of life. This is another book that you need to take notes on to get the full effect since there is definitely a lot of information that you will need to review afterwards and beyond.

Eat that frog! NOW....
I was very unhappy at my job and was having a hard time showing up. I read this book and realized that I didn't know how to do my job well. In fact I lacked sufficient training on how to prioritize and get things done. I was drowning in low value tasks, chatting with coworkers hoping i will get more motivation to get the job done. After listening to this book i realized that my dissatisfaction originated from lack of knowledge on how to do the job efficiently and well, and not from disliking my profession. After listening to the first 3-4 chaptes, confusion dissappeared, and I clearly saw what the problem was. As a result, I was able to develop a solid plan on how to go back to work and fully enjoy it. Thank you Brian!
I have read the a few years ago and felt I needed a wake up call. Great read many times. Just eat the frog and move on. The income is worth it.
Brian Tracy (the author) is like your know-it-all relative who likes to pontificate at family functions. Most of what Tracy says is some combination of boring, obvious, and predictable. Also, he's fond of citing dubious statistics at every turn (example: "Only 2% of people can work effectively without supervision". Really, Brian? Where did you get that factoid?). "Eat that Frog!" does contain some valid advice -- but don't expect anything surprising, insightful, or new. If you just need a kick in the pants to get going, you may find this book useful. If you're looking for something beyond run-of-the-mill advice, look elsewhere.
