Focussing on the
SO after reading about how to prepare oneself for one’s final days, my next two picks seem to emphasise the need to maximise time.
I however felt that I wasted some time reading this book as most of the things they advise to not do are things like not watching television, not using your phone, and not getting on social media. Pretty obvious, no? Quite a few pages delve into these blatantly obvious do-not-do list of items that ultimately lead you to having more time to be productive. However, there are some pages that did give some good advice.
Ultimately, you will either like this book or not, especially if you are a cynic when it comes to self-help books. What I did appreciate was the way they set up their advice into 87 bite-sized witty pieces and added sketches to make it more fun. That helped to make this book more digestible.
I have to admit though, if they did not do that, I would have likely put this book aside half-way through.
