“Four Thousand Weeks” by Oliver Burkeman (ep. 010)

If you’re constantly put off by books encouraging you to make the most of your time on this precious earth and that every day is a valuable gift from some higher power, this book is for you! You’ll be glad to know Oliver Burkeman has no qualms with telling you you’re going to die, your life is insultingly short, and that you’ll probably end up a nobody—and that’s a good thing.

A quick read, with a stronger beginning than an end, I give it 3 stars simply because I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with the information. It’s not real clear how a person under normal circumstances can really improve their lot in life based on the topics covered.
