Brilliant reversal of all of the “how to manage all your crap” books. This one tells you how to say “no” to the crap, set expectations on your terms, and be just as effective in a fraction of the time. This is perfect for musicians with other responsibilities (day jobs) that need more free time to actually make music!      source
I was very affected by The 4-Hour Workweek. I was like this guy has it figured out.      source
The author has a great curiosity and a great love for things.      source
