I've been working on catching up on NetGalley, at least the books I still have that weren't lost forever due to not downloading them on time. It took me a while to get to this book. I was, ironically, too busy. But the author's voice was easy to follow, and interesting enough to want to keep following. I enjoyed the "breaking busy" challenges at the end of each chapter, but I think thats more of a testament to my character than anything else. I like being able to interact with my books and I LOVE challenges. While sometimes I felt like if I ever met Brady I may not get along with him, I greatly admired his ability to be 100% honest with himself. And honestly, that's the only way anyone will get to start recovering from anything. As my office goes into overtime season for the holidays, I might think of this book. But I might also push the thought aside. Either way I'll keep this book in mind for when I get older and ready to slow down. I'd recommend this book to everyone except most people in my generation will take the advice and ignore it like I probably will. But everyone maybe 30 years or older, or working parents who may be too busy for their kids sometimes should definitely give this book a go.
