Second time I read this (first time was the 24-hour challenge version), and it’s still the best resource I’ve found for accomplishing great things. I’ve used the specific tips described in this book to write blog posts, write conference talks, plan huge work projects, even write a book — and do it calmly, methodically, without stressing, getting overwhelmed, or giving up. Highly recommended.

A very short and to-the-point book about taking on and completing projects. The author uses the example of 'planning and completing a dinner party' to drive home the basic principles at play to successfully complete any project. I am inspired to act on these principles and ship my first book soon! ...more

It's a nice read, full of fun parts.

This was the first time I interacted with Amy's writing and I loved it.
She comes off as a very methodical person and I can definitely identify with that.

She lays out her process to get things done efficiently and offers good tips on how to organise yourself and make sure there are no surprises along the way.

Enjoyed reading it, but I've been following Amy's work for a while, so I didn't really learn anything new. It was still a good motivational book though, and I recommend it for anyone that wants to get started with a side project. ...more

Amy Hoy is a legend for a reason. She breaks the impossible down into a structure that's possible after all, and the possible things down into simple things. The only difficult thing is getting out of one's own way... ...more

Helpful practical tips on productivity with the aim of actually “going live “ with your product, whatever that might be. Read this if you have trouble finishing things or following through.

This book will be hard to review until I've actually shipped a product using these tips (the book itself advocates for multiple readings), so no star rating yet. I'll revisit this a few times, I'm sure.

That said, I feel good about the content I've read. Some of it is obvious but plenty is not and there's a depth of experience here. I took some good notes and feel encouraged to ship after reading this.

No-nonsense. But if you know Amy Hoy then that's what you expect.

Read this again in anticipation of the upcoming v2.

Just like the title, this book is very direct and gets to the point. Read it if you want to finish something.

An excellent book that more people should read. It is very effective, and no-nonsense (As another review put it, "If you know Amy Hoy then that's what you expect"). I wish more people read this. ...more

Amy sees straight through my bullshit, rationalisations & excuses. Enjoyable (but quick) read; hazarding a guess that this will be one of the most important books I read this year.
