I love the science and the movement he's trying to create, but the book is all over the place.

It's for people who want to lose weight, and parents who want their kids to be healthy, and restaurant owners, and school administrators, and grocery store owners.

There's so much extra (read: "not necessary") stuff, it should have been broken into three or four books.

It as really good, but I STRONGLY recommend just getting The War of Art instead.

I guess I'm not lucky enough. 😁 There were so many stores.... some people were "lucky" and some purple were not. There wasn't much practical info though.

What would have made Adapt better?

Just like Anti-fragile, it's not about personal development. And, it doesn't contain any useful information.

It's a bunch of stories of failure and mistakes, with "they should have adapted" at the end.

What was most disappointing about Tim Harford’s story?

The lack of aplicable information to my daily life.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

If you like hearing stories of failure, with no actionable information or even anecdotes, then there are many of those.

Any additional comments?

Skip it.

I thought there were going to be lessons on how to be more open to failing and how to "fail well", but there simply wasn't.

It has some really good ideas, ones that I will work on. But, in trying to cover helpful tips fur all of the types of perfectionism, there were only a few concepts that were directly applicable to my situation.
