I've been boiling eggs this way all of my life. It always works for me. Just to reiterate what a couple of other people said, if you use older eggs, they will peel easier. Fresher eggs are always harder to peel. So, don't blame the recipe if your eggs don't peel well. Next time just use them closer to the expiration date and they'll peel easier. One tip that I've heard that might help, though, is adding a teaspoon of salt to the cooking water right after taking them off the heat. The salt doesn't actually make the egg inside salty, it just loosens the shell to make peeling easier. Give it a try and see if it works for you!
