Although it's not a bad book, it did not live up to the expectations I got from reading amazon reviews. As far as I can see, the book starts out by replicating some of Richard Koch's insights on the 80/20 principles in the early chapters, then moves into the area of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) in the middle chapters, and ends with several chapters replicating ideas from David Allen's Getting Things Done (GTD). In the middle of the book there is also a small discussion of the concept of FLOW. As none of these ideas are presented in a novel or insightful manner, perhaps the contribution of the book is primarily in showing that they can be fitted together. To me that was not much of a surprise, but perhaps the other reviewers knew next to nothing about 80/20, NLP, GTD and FLOW.

Another thing that surprised me about the book is the that an author who is also a fictional writer with contributions to films and television series to his credit and gives courses on creative writing can write something as sterile as this. While Richard Koch is an entrepreneur and investor who writes with great wit and charm on how to apply the 80/20 principles in all aspects of life, Jurgen Wolff is an artist who primarily writes about money, success and how think about oneself as a hero. As this was supposed to be written for right-brain people, I was expecting more examples in terms of painting, writing, filmmaking and such, but although Jurgen Wolff has a German name and has written a book primarily aimed at the UK market, he is an American. How anybody outside the USA would get inspired from reading something like this is beyond me.

All I can really say about the book is that if you use the techniques and tips it recommends that you will manage your time much better.

I particularly liked the alter ego strategy (which I haven't seen anywhere else) and the ideas on how to actually overcome procrastination.

It's very easy to read and doesn't have the "fluff" normally found in these types of books.

I bought this book and then didn't actually read it for a while. I guess that proves I didn't have much focus!

Anyway, once I started reading, I enjoyed it and now I use about half a dozen of the techniques in it. One thing that's improved is that I used to be late for everything and now I'm on time. Well, usually.

I also used to procrastinate a lot more but now I actually enjoy the feeling of freedom when I get things done that I was avoiding.

If you're looking for a good read with a lot of practical information and none of those naff made-up case studies you usually get in self-improvement books, you'll like this one.

I'm one of those people who muti-tasks to the point where on some days, nothing actually gets done. This book was a gift and initially viewed with some cynicism. But, it has to be said, even for someone as easily distracted as me - it held my attention right the way through.

In particular i liked the Chapter that shows you how to put the principles into ACTION!

What's more I'm now finding myself better organised - it's like the book installed a 'focus virus' in my brain whilst I was reading.

Why not buy a copy and see if it can do the same for you?

Enjoyed the book which really concentrated on the day to day behavioural aspects of focus and possibly could have included more science around attentional processing and concentration and how these cognitive skills could also be developed
