4.0 out of 5 stars A proficient summary, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once again there we see there is no silver bullet and this book is a great summary of traditional time management thinking. Still, if we all followed the basics in this book we'd all get more fine more easily! Well written and a good structure and summarising section at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars A relevant classic, 12 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an essential text for anyone wishing to improve their work environment. The principles underpin everything that we have striven to re-learn from the Japanese. Critics of Taylor's have become fashionable, assigning him to a former paradigm of labour exploitation and micro division, with thinking and doing separated. Sadly, these critics ignore the context of Taylor's working world - of poor and inequitable access to education, including basic English skills from an immigrant population to the states. These critics ignore the enormous value and breakthrough in his underlying approach both technically and socially, which parallel the most enlightened lean scholars who came next, and the very best of whom (such as Handyside) are generous with their credit. Ignore the critics who start their books with a quick trip through our industrial landscape and dismiss Taylor early on, read this book, enjoy it and make your own minds up!

5.0 out of 5 stars A most important set of ideas, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Written beautifully, this is a great book for so many reasons. I've recommended it to friends, colleagues and clients. Its part detective story, part introduction to systems thinking and most importantly, it makes a real contribution to the tricky subject of how to add real value by standardising complex and knowledge-based work. And as with all difficult puzzles, the answer is often rooted in simplicity itself - get a checklist!

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid 2D drafting software, nice to have on my Mac, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read a lot of negative reviews about the product but have been pleasantly surprised having used it for a couple of simple projects now. Its mostly reliable, and has all the functionality you'd expect from a simple drafting tool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well enough, excellent value for money, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I held off buying a new Charger for my Macbook because they all got praised or panned for being trash, so I suspected it was a luck-of-the-draw thing. This item, however, is great and works well. Does not get too hot. Only point of difference from the original is that the magsafe point doesn't latch as well or robustly as the original so you cannot just "throw" it on, needs placing and a bit of encouragement. Hardly a problem though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every home office needs one of these, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Forget your expensive to run laser printers, desk cluttering scanners and all. This has everything. I'm especially glad I went for the two sided printing. Fast once it gets going. Print quality is actually pretty good, its reliable even with cheapo recycled economy paper. Multipage scanning also brilliant and so far very reliable as well. Installation took a little while and my Mac can struggle to find it on my home network (NOT the printer's fault, there's loads about the problem on the web). Highly recommended for performance and EXCELLENT vfm!

Bought this because of a chance rediscovery and for nostalgia for that golden pop age. This is a great compilation of a real star!

4.0 out of 5 stars Frighteningly good read, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well written and structured for the lay person interested in this most important of topics. Makes an excellent job of cutting through the opinion, pseudo science and downright self interest to inform clearly about essentially a difficult problem we should all be expected to understand and start acting upon.
