The Efficiency Playbook is just that, efficient. I have been following the author's career for years now and I am always nothing but impressed with all he is able to accomplish. He is truly a talented and gifted individual and I jumped at the chance to read this book he just published! This is an area in my life where I need all the help I can get and I'm smart enough to know to turn to the experts when I am a novice in an area. This book is well written, full of very useful and profound methods and advice and truly is a guide to how you can become more efficient. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in developing their skill set of efficiency. The author's podcast is also quite enjoyable and helpful. I would recommend both! Michael Andrew is a gifted writer and even more gifted businessman. Read this book and you will be glad you did.

Modern day Benjamin Franklin

There is a well-known adage "Time is money." Benjamin Franklin wrote practical suggestions and tied observations to witty phrases that are still used today. In this collection of new aphorisms or truths, Michael Andrew has coined each chapter with an adage. Some are familiar, some are not. Either way, they make the thought of the strategy fun to remember. I found myself really enjoying the succinct chapters that provoked self-reflection like "The Thought Ruler"; or "The Recycle Loop"; and how if I could apply the information, I'd have more time to do things I enjoy more! The chapter entitled "The Link" had me smiling from ear to ear, chuckling because I think we can all learn better with a sense of humor about how to improve our productivity. Understanding how we can "get more for less" benefits everyone in everyday life. If you have a resource, like this playbook, that organizes practical applications you will have more of what you want like time, money, and freedom. All I can say is that Benjamin Franklin could not have said it better himself!
