A Bit Disappointing
on May 1, 2014
I've a small library of No BS books here, and refer to them often. This one, to me, falls flat. It's harder to read, and in many areas it seems a promotional piece for the websites. By chapter 7 I was wondering how any of it would apply to me at all. There was some nuggets gleaned, but it didn't leave me with the "I can do this!" or inspiring ideas that many of the other books did.
That said, it wasn't *bad* - but seemed to refer to other books, as well as the websites, often enough that I caught myself wondering if I should just buy that book. Does it have useful information? Yes, and worth a look for that reason. But compared to the other BS books I have, this one just falls short.
In full disclosure I read my copy from NetGalley, but I don't think reading with a notebook for notes would change my perception. It just didn't seem to 'flow' as easily and was too difficult to pick back up - needed for motivation and using the information. Good book to glean from, but not in comparison to other works in my opinion.
