Good book. However the author sometimes misses the message like for example on chapter 10 where she talks about Love and Work. She cites very poor examples of the Big Thing on this chapter.

She also does not qualify as a lazy person as she said she is. It also looks like the Big Thing she created had nothing to do with her real passion and that is probably why she had some trouble completing it.

If you want to get the main teachings of this book, read page 22. That is all you need.
