Front Cover
Peak Performance Press, 2005 - Business & Economics - 134 pages
3 Reviews
The authors wrote this book when they couldn't find a short, comprehensive time management book to recommend to their executive coaching clients. It's based on the best tips from the top 20 time management books on Amazon as of September 2005. The book covers all the important aspects of time management in five sections (Focus, Plan, Organize, Take Action, Learn) and 25 chapters. Not a linear system, the book's layout allows readers to read from start to finish or zero in on specific areas for improvement. Writing is tight, with no fluff and many bullets and numbered steps so readers can get right to work on changing their time management habits. The Appendix includes an annotated list of the 20 source books. There's also a select list of books, many of them classics, which help people lead happier, more fulfilled lives. The last appendix shows how to buy books for much less. Published in December 2005, the book is now one of the top 5 time management books on Amazon!
