Conclusively, the whole thesis of the book is that majority of value in most facets of life comes from 20% of the things involved, and apparently to prove a point, that applies for this book as well.
This is the staggeringly simple idea behind the book. It really doesn't need the hundreds of pages to bring this through. There is certainly some material to make you think, but there's also a lot of filler there which has the fingerprints of a consultant (and consultancy is what the author spent his career doing) simply rehashing the point, and devising unnecessary ways of complicating a simple principle.
Simply: do what works. Pursue the things you're good at, the things that bring you success, and stay away from everything else. There's a lot of needless chat about many other topics which at times feels irrelevant.
A useful general idea and thought provoking book, even if a little repetitive, irrelevant and impractical in places. An ok read.
For example, no mention of the Internet, Google, Apple, etc. It was if the post 20th Century didn't exist. Richard sings the praises of taking certain things and making them better - if he took the lack of 'modern stuff' and updated the book, then publicised it with a big message of "including how it applies in the Internet age", then it'd likely get more sales.
This of course doesn't take anything away from the fact that it's still a great book. It's just that there are many great books that are dated (Think and Grow Rich for example) and would benefit from a refresh.
If you own a pre-update version already - as I do - buy the updated version - as I did. The 4 completely new chapters alone are worth it. A no-brainer!
