I use a slightly different method...and it's really easy.
1. Put eggs in pan and cover with COLD water.
2. Put pan with lid on it onto burner and put burner on medium/high.
3. Set timer for 20 minutes
4. Once boiling, turn off burner and wait for timer to beep.
5. Take pan off burner and shock eggs with cold tap water
6. Peel and eat.
I have always had perfect boiled eggs with this method...I sometimes get cracks...but most the time I don't care. If I care, then there are things
you can do to avoid that (vinegar, poking a pin hole in egg, etc.).
I like this method better than boiling the water first.
ETA: Duh...forgot the step about the timer
