I sometimes wonder if these books are written assuming the audience isn't paying attention.

In my mind, what took this from being a great book to a good book was the very last chapter. The authors explain that inspiration is perishable, and that good ideas should not be put on a shelf. That's a great motivating thought to end a book on, for sure. However it flies directly in the face of what the authors said only a couple brief chapters ago, that good ideas should be shelved for a while to make sure your excitement for them is justified.

That's my major fault with this brief and quick read. It's geared for the person who's just starting, before the growth slows down your agility. They've nailed it, and it's obviously worked for them.
