I may have rated the book a little higher if I wasn't a voracious reader and have read similar books already. I think this book is good and inspirational for people just beginning to read "how to think/learn faster" style books.
If you want more depth and have time to invest in a longer book, I recommend something like "5 Elements of Effective Thinking" where it covers a lot of the same topics talked about in this book but in more detail.
I am taking all sorts of classes - music, writing, painting, investing (so I do not waste any money and do not stress out about having the summer off), meditation, tai chi.
I read through this book once. Now I am taking a page a day, and journaling my own thoughts to what I have read. What I am finding out is that I am birthing a different person from a month ago, a year ago, a decade ago. And that new person will have something fun and wonderful to offer in the new work I choose that brings me joy.
I highly recommend this book if you feel your creativity has abandoned you. Your mojo has not left you - it is just waiting for you to awaken it from a long nap and for you to start playing together again.
