That review seems like a very good summary of the book. My only real quibble is that the review is less clear than it could be about the Unschedule idea. The Unschedule includes not just leisure activities, but also other necessary things like sleeping, eating, personnel care, required meetings, etc. Essentially any thing that has a definite claim on your time, or should, goes on the Unschedule. It's very helpful for visualizing just how little time is left for discretionary actions.

Other pieces of the book are less clear in my mind; it's been more than 4 years since I read it. Perhaps I need to re-read it now.
