"Fascinating . . . full of insight and the observational flare of excellent magazine writing . . . This entertaining guide to the art of getting things done gets it done with style."
"Cox is a seasoned dispenser of constraints and expectations, and, in turn, a coaxer and a cajoler of those who must meet them . . . He wants to demystify deadlines in order to defang them, to assure us that if we just tilt our heads we can see our demons as our friends."
—The New Yorker
