Editorial Reviews

Review

Getting Organized in the Google Era breaks new ground…guiding you to solutions that honor your unique personality.   Smart, non-judgmental and filled with practical advice.
-Julie Morgenstern, NY Times bestselling author of Organizing from the Inside Out and Never Check Email in the Morning.
 
“Douglas Merrill has worked a near-miracle: In short, simple steps, he shows how to become powerful and confident in a world of too much info and too little time. This isn’t just the book I wished I’d written, it’s the book I need to give to people I care about.”
-Quentin Hardy, Forbes Magazine.
 
This book has been a terrific resource for a messy-desked, attention-challenged thinker of random thoughts like me!  Thanks to Douglas Merrill, I now use digital tools to find almost everything and my transition from paper to digital is no longer awkward.  This is a marvelous book, with tremendous ideas on every page. 
-Susan Scott, NY Times bestselling author of Fierce Conversations, Achieving Success at Work & in Life – One Conversation at a Time, and Fierce Leadership, A Bold Alternative to the Worst “Best” Practices of Business Today.
 
“Perhaps only Douglas Merrill could take us from Frederick Winslow Taylor to cloud computing to getting organized in one helpful read. This is the book to help you stay ahead of your own avalanche of information so that it's always accessible and useful to you.” 
- Dave Girouard, President of Enterprise Group, Google, Inc.

I found this book to be very helpful. Since I'm a little nervous about relying too much on technology, The author's insights, opinions and useful how-to's made a big difference for me. The 2010 edition is dated, though. Make sure to grab the updated version. His music reference's really helped make the book a fun kind of work.

Author led development of many of the Google tools which constitute the core of his system, so pride in parenthood evident, but justifiable. Advocates relying on search rather than fooling with filing systems etc as central premise. Makes sense. Worth the time.

This book has helped me to consolodate alot of disparate documents and important resources and make them portable. Now I can go to one place and get all my international communications and documents organized. The book has saved me a huge amount of time. I also find the writing style to be personable and witty. The authors make some pretty complex concepts simple enough that my grandmother could understand it. I recommend this book to any who travels or lives in a foreign country with limited cloud computing resources and internet savvy.

I bought this book, as it was paper bound and I had ordered the hardcopy, after I listened to the ebook at least 4 times. I wanted hard copy and paper, to carry with me on travel to review his organization points and how I was trying several of his instructions and suggestions.
