What reviewers are saying:

Jack Thomas: "There is so much useful stuff in this book about motivation, setting goals, mind body balance, the list goes on.... I recommend it for a good think and a challenge to your perspective on life"

Keith Martin: "I discovered Philip Eby's blog Dirt Simple a couple of months ago, and his approach to mindfulness, mind hacks and getting things done resonated well with me. So when he collected his best posts and published them as a book, I happily ponied up his asking price and bought one. I'm glad that I did."

FictionFobic: "Why not insert a new program to upgrade the system? We do that daily at work and at home. Why assume that habits and patterns are fixed? Download a new driver and the glitch will be fixed. Familiar and reasonable words and indeed every lesson that is learned supports the case."
