Great book, short and straight to the point

The Arthur explains how task switch known as multitasking actually hinders efficiency and productivity. For a person who works in large companies or has a business this book will allow you to notice how much money is actually lost when your employees are performing task switching. I know it is hard to not do task switching these days but if this is taken seriously, this will result in better and faster work production. After reading this book I have been able to notice how much task switching I do and I have started to minimize them by dividing the different task in the morning of each day, ordering by priority and focusing on doing one until it is finished, then continue with the next until all tasks are complete. I still need to improve this, but it has helped me out.

Recommend to listen, an excellent short and straight to the point book.
