Format: Paperback
The key to the book is that you have to find a time management system that works for you. If you have trouble following the traditional methods (personal organizer, lists, etc.), then throw them away and find your own method, without a feeling of failure or of being defective. There are many tips in the book on finding that method, with suggestions that have worked for other people. (There are three of us now in my group using a variation of the post-it method!) In addition to writing about getting organized, Magee-Cooper and Trammell include ways of getting rid of unnecessary mental baggage (why it's not bad to procrastinate, for example) which were very enlightening. In addition, the book is quick to read (concise and well-written) and very entertaining, with some fun drawings that many people may identify with!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By James Foucar on 30 July 2009
Format: Paperback
Having read a lot of books preaching time management at me, I was glad to find this book that writes with me, not at me. I have since adopted one or two of the tips in this book, adapting them to suit me.

I recommend this book for those struggling with "conventional" time management books.

Absolutely the best book for creative/right brain people 13 Sept. 2004
By P. J. Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is absolutely the best time management book for right brain, creative people like me. I read lots of books and articles on time management, and benefited from many tips. But the fit was never just right. This book addresses monochronic time (linear, clock time), and polychronic time (what creative types deal with). And lots of other key topics that hit home. It answered many questions for me (Why was I always buying some new organizer, or gadget to help me organize myself and my environment? Why could I not just work top-to-bottom on my To Do list?)

I bought my first copy about 8-9 years ago. Now, I am buying my fourth copy, as I keep giving them away to folks like me.

If you are a creative person or right-brain person, you should read this book. If traditional time management techniques don't really "fit" you, you should read this book.

A wonderful book for expansive, creative types 6 Sept. 2003
By Christopher Burbridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains many useful tips for people like me--digressive, expansive, creative types. Perhaps the previous (negative) reviewer just has a (very) different style. Sure, for the more linear mind, traditional time management strategies probably work well. But not necessarily for me!
Even more than specific tips, I learned a lot here about how to value my style of thinking and being, and how I could take advantage of my creative mind for time management. The authors do not pretend that having an expansive, discursive mind, it is always _easy_ to keep all of life's little details together. They just provide lots of practical ideas that make it _easier_, by working _with_ the creative mind.
I found this book very different from all other time management books I have ever seen. What it gave me most of all, was an increased sense of faith in my personal style. I get the feeling that the authors are anything but lazy.
I liked this book a great deal.

A "must read" for people in management. 30 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love this book! It is well-organized, easy reading. I have read several time management books, including Covey's 7 Habits, over the last three years trying to discover ways to help myself and my subordinates understand, develop and practice good time management skills. Time Management For Unmanageable People not only provides you with great time management tips, it contains valuable insights as to how different people view and use time. If you have been struggling with understanding why some people seem to naturally be better time managers than others, this is the book for you. I used this book as one of my resources in developing a time management training course for our organization's management level personnel. Buy it, read it and recommend it to others -- you won't regret it.

No guilt time management 11 Dec. 1999
By Liz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are a "right-brained" person and have tried to follow other left brained time management programs with only fair success, this is the book for you. This author makes time management fun and flexible. I read about her book in another great time managment book by Lee Silber. You'll enjoy this book and get many good tips to help you be more productive.
