Good Points, But Just A Sales Pitch

Any additional comments?

They make good points in this book, however I found it mostly a sales pitch for their organizing program and I'm not keen on paying to buy a commercial.

Good Tips For Leveraging Today's Technology

Mr. Gleeson covers some tried and true approaches, and isn't afraid to mention the other authors whose work is consistent with his perspective. I like this, and I like his references to those similarities. What I like most, however, is the fact that he as updated his recommendations with approaches that describe how today's technologies -- e.g., PDA's, PIMs, web based tools -- can be used to help you be more effective. He has a chapter focused on how not to be overwhelmed by email! And another on using electronic task lists and journals. I have read many many books on prioritizing and organizing work so that I can be more effective, but this is the first one that has really talked about how to use the technology to help, and it doesn't require that you buy a tool developed by them.

The book is well organized and comprehensive. Mr. Gleeson provides easy to follow lists of instructions for how to implement the suggestions. There is also a very short executive summary of the book, and an overview of each chapter to describe what will discussed.

One point that I found slightly irritating -- the author starts out pumping his service,and descriptions of he work they have done with companies are peppered unnecessarily throughout the book.

Overall -- good book, good tips, love the technology focus!
