Niall writes with a fluency that verges on stream-of-consciousness. That native of the city he currently calls home, James Joyce, would be proud. He also, whether instinctively or otherwise, observes the first precept of Stephen King's "On Writing" (which contains all anyone needs to know about the art): there is not a passive sentence in the book - everything is totally up front and personal. All of this makes for a very good read.
Two chapters in "Get S*** Done", in particular, stand out. These are "It's all about selling" and "Playing ugly, winning ugly", although there are other sections that are of abounding interest for the very personal detail of the writer's life (to date) that come across.
Reading about the challenges he faced and the way he dealt with them make this reviewer recall the words of Winston Churchill at Harrow school when he is supposed to have said to the students, in 1941, when WWII was well underway, "We never, ever, ever give in". Niall also has excellent advice about the value of a high work rate, which is one of those things that can sound like a truism until one is faced with the need to live it.
There is only one part of the work with which I would disagree, and that is where he gives his views on education. Quite apart from gaining qualifications, and allowing for Niall's personal experience, there are many people who gain fulfilment just from the experience of attending school, college or university.
All told, "Get S*** Done" is well worth the purchase price.
