Yes, this book is not going to work for you. It's not a one-size-fits-all book; it's got a fairly narrow focus on people who know what they want to write and just can't find time to do it.

Though it's not a time-management book, either. It's more...opportunistic, I guess. Looking at where your time is so you can use it. I'm dyslexic and/or adhd and/or executive function issues, so most conventional approaches don't work for me, but I was able to pick up several techniques that I'm still using -- I guess almost 20 years since I first read it.

The NaNo approach is good for writing a first draft, but when it comes to working on edits, scheduling crits for other people, keeping up with blogs I follow for professional reasons, et cetera, I need to have some sort of organization or nothing ever gets done.

p.s. I edited my recommendation to make clearer who might benefit from it.
