My friend and former housemate Katie casually mentioned that she re-reads this book every time she has a new job, and like most things she says/does, I immediately latched onto it as THE BEST IDEA EVER.

This book is classic self-help. I am such a sucker for this type of book, which is why I can’t read very many of them. I was practically rabid during the first section, as he’s explaining the reasons why one might need to use this system and the ways it might improve one’s life. And then, as soon as it was application time, I got SO OVERWHELMED. But I kept reading, and I’ve been applying and re-applying these lessons. I have the book sitting next to my desk. I’m putting little encouraging notes/reminders on my wall. I’m already understanding why he suggests implementing it for work and life at the same time (because I did not, and my life feels so much more chaotic compared to my work now).

So, this is a strong recommendation. This book is a classic for a reason. Know that it’s going to challenge you to change some habits, so don’t read it unless you’re willing to change.
