The main premise of this book is the idea that slow and steady wins the race. It is very helpful the way Darren reminds us that even ridiculously small changes can, if applied CONSISTENTLY, produce huge effects over time. He also reminds us of the power in taking responsibility for our own actions, and that if we want to "manage" something, we must first "measure" it. I also love the idea of putting success on "autopilot" through establishing good habits.
There are a million books out there in this space. I should know, I've read most of them! But this is one of a handful that I think belongs on everyone's bookshelf, at least everyone who is interested in personal development and improvement. You can't go wrong with this one.
Things I could have lived without: the blatant self-promotion by the author (I mean...the last page of the book is asking you to buy 5 more copies of his book...yuck), all the name dropping and references to his own magazine, comparisons to the author's own awesome life constantly, and the useless visuals and "informative" charts. I also feel like a lot of it was very repetitive, and what he said in 200 pages, he could have said in about half that.
