This was an incredibly quick read. It appears Martin Meadows has made his mark publishing bite-sized summations of more robust research. While his detractors call this cheap, I disagree, calling it well-achieved.
Everything in this book was a reminder. Nothing was new or revelatory and that’s what I liked about it. I also agreed with everything he said. He called them “best practices” and that’s exactly what I would call the advice he offered.
In his preface, Meadows makes it clear what he is going to deliver and he qualified his status as a writer, rather than a degree wielding expert. As much of my non-fiction is written in similar humility and brevity, I was inspired by the view of success achievable in such a style.
