Publisher's Summary

Learn how to stop being overwhelmed by email and get to inbox zero.
Are you buried under an avalanche of email? In our fast-paced world, it's easy to allow hundreds--even thousands--of messages accumulate in your inbox. While email can enhance your personal communication, it can also turn into a huge time sink. Let email control you and it could lead to: low productivity, stress, distraction and a lack of focus on important projects.
The solution? Learn how to declutter your inbox and never again get overwhelmed by email.
Discover: how the “inbox zero habit” can stem the tide of email.
Whereas most books (and blog posts) recommend fancy technology for email management, this doesn't solve the root problem. It's kind of like a doctor focusing on the symptoms, not the disease. In order to do your best work in a peaceful, constructive manner, you need to develop a specific routine that focuses on email efficiency. Put simply: You need to develop a habit for processing email.
In the book Declutter Your Inbox, you will get a nine-step plan that helps clear the email clutter--no matter how many messages you receive on a daily basis. If you are someone who only spends 20 minutes managing email, the tips in this book will cut that time in half. On the other hand, if you are a high-powered executive who spends as much as three to four hours per day managing email, this book will help you discover a number of high-leverage habits that will increase your productivity.
Declutter Your Inbox contains a detailed blueprint of how to be productive while processing email. You will learn how to:

Read and understand the six limiting beliefs about email.
Write template responses and use software to handle common questions.
Practice the "10 rules" of writing efficient emails.
Organize your inbox by creating email filters.
Use seven tools for managing an empty inbox.
Create a central location for files that you typically send.
Practice the 4 D's when processing emails.
Streamline all your inboxes into one (or two) locations.
Develop seven habits for managing email.
Don't become a slave to your inbox. You can get to inbox zero by creating a powerful routine for processing email.

Very Useful Book - Not So Useful In Audio

Where does Declutter Your Inbox rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book has a lot of good advice for ending each day with an empty email inbox. However listening to it does not allow one to actually remember and put into action many of the ideas presented. I had to purchase a Kindle Edition to be actually be able to use the book. As Self Help books go this one is quite useful.
