“Daily Edge” is a quick read with good quotes

“Daily Edge” by David Horsager is a short book with 33 1–2 page chapters that provide tips on how to improve your day-to-day routine to get more out of your time. It is most likely that many of us would already be practicing some of the tips. Even so, many of us will find few useful tips. At least, I did :)
