Great place to start on your journey and introduce you to key concepts quickly.
As the title suggests, it is very easy to read the whole book, make notes and formulate your plan of action in just
one day (or a few hours). I would recommend this as a great place to start and a perfect way to introduce you to some key concepts of time management. Anyone looking for a deeper understanding will need many more sources to support this text. Specifically, when looking to deal with your procrastination. Only criticism's really is that it feels like it often lacks depth (but then again the intent of the book really is an introduction to time management) and that it focuses heavily on office environments and the corporate world. It took some creative license to make this useful for me as a self employed musician.
