It doesn’t make any radically mind-blowing points, but it frames the topic in a way that is quite engaging. Working for yourself is hard, because there is always a tendency to procrastinate. The proposed solution? Write things down, break tasks down into their component parts, commit to external deadlines, and learn to estimate how long it takes you to do things. While this sounds rigid and boring, it is actually liberating (it lets you do a wider variety of tasks, and do things at the last minute without anxiety).
Sort of like getting things done for dummies. I like it.
