4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, nice format, based on the work of leading experts in the time management field., 19 May 2010
This review is from: The 25 Best Time Management Tools and Techniques: How to Get More Done without Driving Yourself Crazy (Paperback)
The book is based on the best advice from the top 20 time management books, that the authors have researched, to put together a guide that will motivate you to take action. You get a lot for your money in terms of action points.

The format consists of 25 short focused chapters, organized around five sections:

- Focus
- Plan
- Organize
- Take action
- Learn

The section on focus, is different to what you find in other books on the subject. It includes chapters on vision and goals, as well as the usual time management techniques,covered elsewhere in the book. Included is research that shows that multi - tasking is not effective, basically does not work despite what many believe.(see chapter 16)

Some of the chapters are short on content and implementation, and would have benefitted from say 1-2 extra pages. This would have made the final product more comprehensive. However c80% is pretty good, with no wasted space. Perhaps a clearer overall philosophy - message to bring it all together would have rounded off the book.

In summary, I have designed and run a large number of time management workshops and rate this as a good buy. It will save you the substantial cost of attending a time management course. The book attracted many positive reviews in the US, on Amazon.
