I think this is a fantastic book, extremely practical and unlike most out there, based on actual research. Petr and Adela have done a great job summarising and presenting this research in an accessible and useful way. I am actually (believe it or not), using it myself.

I'm someone who has too many side hustles and hobbies while maintaining my full time job as a teacher. The To-Do-Today model from this book list is so simple and compliments all of the things I'm already doing. It makes me productive on a granular level and I feel like a kid when I'm making it!

Chris Kowalewski
