  • A unique gem that will reframe your life

    I went in as a productivity nerd thinking I'd get a better time management or prioritization system out of this book. All of the "system" advice is actually in a very short appendix. This book actually contains something much, much more profound. And it's the best mid-life crisis book I found. If you're feeling sick from the modern world. In the middle of your life and facing regret. If you're facing frustration about the future. About your limitations. About not having a breakthrough. Regrets about past decisions. Limited future options. Frustration that you cant do more. This is the book to read. It will reframe how you view the world. The author uses fascinating historic anecdotes, religious practices, philosophers, and scientific studies as back drops to discuss the pitfalls of the modern world and the way it has us wired. Topics include embracing procrastination, our limited abilities, human connections, anxiety, FOMO, the price of convenience, and other topics. Some might sound cliche, but the author presented them in a new way I haven't considered, even after ten years of reading other self help books. My latest self help binge brought me to looking up books on mid life crises. This is actually the best mid-life crisis book I ever find, disguised as a time management book. It isn't written for the mid-life crisis, but it addresses many of the themes some people struggle with. This author does use political/progressive topics in examples (climate change, fake news, neo-nazis, 2016, etc). They are repeated, but never the focus, so they are easy to overlook. I considered taking off a star, but this book is such a great work, and the intrusion is so minor, I'm leaving it as 5 stars.

    Thanks for your feedback!
