There are a couple of useful ideas within the book. Advantages and pitfalls of simplicity are outlined and some paths featured. Nevertheless, as it's common, when you end up the chapters little remains. The book is too much dense and padded out. It's a contradiction with the issue of the book. There are 10 rules at the end that summarise the ideas. If some pages with the useful points were added on to this summary, the book could be reduced to 50 useful pages. It's a pity not to practice what one preaches. As stated by himself: "One reason for complexity is trying to show deep knowledge on an issue".
