I would give the book 4 out of 5 stars. It seems to be written mainly for business people – especially the management types. Anyone can benefit from reading it though. Since reading the book, I cleaned out my Gmail inbox containing over 300 messages. I set up a new filing system at home (which works MUCH better). I bought a few extra baskets and changed the way I used my “in basket.” I even bought a nice labeler!
The problem is that if you don’t follow the whole system you can easily get back in a frustrated rut. I’m still figured out how I want to do things. My biggest problem is that I work from two computers and two locations. I have my work office and my home office with a computer for each.
There are resolutions for this type of thing, I just need to fully implement them. I would really recommend this book to anyone who feels they don’t have enough time to get everything done that they want or need to.
