Margin is what we all need!!!!

The book is truly wonderful and very encouraging. The speaker has a wonderful sound and does not take away from the enjoyment of the book. Would highly recommend this one!!!!

A good perspective on balance

This is written from a Christian perspective. It encourages balance, love and rest. It’s not a “ preachy” book. It encourages the weary to find grace and rest.

Weird first draft

This might have made a good book if someone had bothered to edit it.

The first five or so chapters shoot the horse dead and then beat it mercilessly for hours. It's shocking how much time the author spends belaboring the point about what they think is wrong with the world today.

Then the book switches gears into self help mode, seemingly almost afraid to mention the word God.

The most shocking thing of all to me is that by the end of the book the author has flipped to full on sermon mode. It's almost like three books written by three completely different people.

It's been a very long time since I was this confounded by a book. I mean no ill will towards the author but this book was in desperate need of better editing.

I agree with the authors message

Great concept however I thought the book lacked everyday practical tools and focused a lot on the reasoning and benefits of valuing “margins” which are an easy sell. Overall I think the authors message could have been summed up in an article vs a book.

so so 😔

I'm not sure how to review this book. The author makes a good case why people are over committed and over worked.

But I think I already knew that. Do I felt the first section of the book was a waste on me.

The last half could have been better written with more personal stories . It felt like a laundry list of items to fix the problem instead telling a story.

I'd recommend this book if you feel lost in your life or feel overwhelmed with your life.
