The author did an excellent job of identifying the problems, with very little effort in offering the solutions. He spends a lot of time perfectly describing the issue, the pain associated with it, and potential causes - and then a wisp of time offering super high-level ideas without getting deep into the answers.
John Burke seems to love offering these lists of things to do, but doesn't want to spend the time detailing the items in those lists. A "typical" list item would be something like, "try to be more positive in how you perceive your goals", which leaves the listener saying, "well... duh... AND..?"
The book is 1 hour and 14 minutes. If John could go back and make the solutions and the answers less vague and more concrete and perhaps create a 2 hours and 30 minutes book... then I think he could really have something great here.
Manage Your Day-to-Day is a perfect blend of information and insights that I have been able to use immediately in my day to day work. The variety of content is exceptional due to the fact that this is more of a compilation of ideas, which is very beneficial because productivity is more of a "finding what works for you" - so you're sure to find content that meets your style of work.
Due to the short length, I love the fact that I can re-listen and remind myself of the nuggets that are found throughout.
NOTE: I would recommend having a way to jot down a few notes while listening, especially when they give you some "hidden" web addresses with additional resources from 99U.
