Spotted: Making It All Work


When I first spotted this title, I just assumed it was the autobiography of Tim Gunn.  But no, that would be silly.  From this girl’s amazing ability to match not only colors, but also patterns and textures, she already knows how to make it work like that.   20110518-092416.jpg

No, this “Making It All Work”  it appears to be a businessy self-improvement book in the same vein as “Who Moved My Low Hanging Fruit From My Thirty-Thousand Foot View and Other Habits of Highly Effective People.”  As you can probably tell, I am somewhat skeptical of such books.  As Nassim Taleb wrote, a book like “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” is really just bad statistics, and I’m not sure really does anything other than create a scalable source of income for the author.   

But, I’m not the best at time management  prioritization knowing what the hell I’m doing myself, so maybe some other reviews (mostly by people who have read his other books apparently) would be more helpful.  Do these kind of books help you, good readers?

Updated: Holy moly, Tim Gunn does have a self-helpy book of his own with a similar title: “Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making it Work

One thought on “Spotted: Making It All Work

  1. I think that even if books like this are total crap, and the reader recognizes that, they help people learn to be introspective and intentional about their decisions and actions. Like astrology.
