    "Honestly this is pretty much just your basic average self help book and I wasn't impressed. It seems to be filled with platitudes and anecdotes more than actually practical advice, and what was there I didn't find inspiring. Not for me."

    "It's very short and to-the-point. I really think it should have been titled 'Welcome to the Real World' because it drives home that life is not fair, or predictable, and it is up to us(and only us) to adapt or die. Unfortunately, too many people don't understand that. I think anyone would benefit from reading this reality-check."

The book seems a bit dated, I am not sure how many people still use paper calendars, but the concept is transferable.
