Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For the most part this book is just common senses. Its repution. If you can make your own schedule do not buy this book. That's all it talks about.

Worth reading Jan. 2 2011
By pondperson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you want a straightforward book on time management this is for you. (Thankfully there are no long narratives to wade through- instead you're launched immediately into information that you can use.)

The goal is to re-assess how you manage your time and habits, re-assess your environment (is it conducive to good management?), re-assess what you value and compare that with how you spend your time (are they in synch?).

This book contains concrete recommendations that can be put into action right away. Someone who is looking to manage their time better wants something that can be put into action immediately. It covers emails, meetings, socializing, getting the important work done even when there isn't a deadline.

This book is set up with an easy-to-read format and bulleted sections.
I read it once and earmarked passages to return to.

It contains information that managers/supervisors can use.

In comparison to several other books I looked at, this was the one to use.
