Most people start their days by checking their emails. Depending what's inside, determines the mood and/or the productivity level (both personally and professionally) for the rest of the day. No wonder people get Inbox-anxiety, as they approach it with fear or dreaded anticipation.

What if you can approach your Inbox with excitement, joy and freedom to use it to our advantage rather then seeing it as "just more work"? Take control of your Inbox and you can take control of your day...and life. At least this is the opinion of the authors--and, I wholeheartedly agree!

Everything in this book is spot-on: from explaining how outdated productivity and time management books don't address our high-tech email-driven lives, to how it can affects our work and social lives. The self-assessment is given at the beginning and end of the book, which is brilliant--having you actively participate in the "activity" of this book, rather than just reading it.

I was actually in a blackout without electricity and Internet as I read this on my Kindle, so I couldn't apply everything I was learning at the same time (which I recommend doing). However, I took notes and once I got Internet in 30-minutes I accomplished the recommended tasks and proud to share that on Day 1-Week 1, I am Inbox Free!

I've been cleaning, reorganizing, declutting my Gmail account for the past 2-weeks to start my year off right--my 3 daughters are helping in getting rid of unused apps as well. So, this book came at a perfect time.

I scored 7/10 of my self-assessment, so I knew there was much room to improve; particularly in cleaning out unread emails (and keeping it cleaned week after week), using archives more efficiently, and syncing as much of my google-products with my laptop and Android.

This book provides Minimal insight. Only the Basic groundwork for addressing emails and tasks. Spend your money elsewhere if you are looking for value.

I get a lot of email. I’m sure you do too. Work emails. Personal emails. Newsletters. “Helpful” notification emails. Even more “helpful” marketing emails for more stuff you don’t want or need.

Like most people, I struggle with the tension between staying on top of the information flow (even those annoying marketing emails) and staying away from email long enough to get real work done or enjoy downtime with friends and family.

When I heard about Inbox Freedom (ironically, I was surfing Twitter while procrastinating from tackling my overflowing inbox), the promise – tackling email like a zen-master, freedom from the tyranny of the inbox – was too alluring to ignore.

I immediately downloaded it and dove right in. A few hours later, the easy part was done (reading the book). The tough part now lies ahead – changing habits and letting go of the addiction of checking for new updates in my inbox.

Mike Ghaffary & Charles Hudson are incredibly accomplished, busy guys. Mike’s currently VP of Biz Dev at Yelp, and Charles is a repeat entrepreneur and venture partner at SoftTech VC. They get a LOT done with their time, even holding down multiple jobs at times. I’m confident that I’m nowhere near as busy as them, so if this system works for them, then it should work for most of us. It’s been field tested.

It’s also inspired by principles behind two classic productivity frameworks: Getting Things Done; and the classic 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Mike and Charles have adapted those principles for the email-rich, instant-messaging, always-on/always-connected, constant-interrupt professional world we live in today.

Over the years, I’ve seen (and tried) a lot of attempts at taming the inbox.

Easy read and highly recommend. Several straightforward tips for managing your email, tasks, calendar, and notes. While I'm already doing many of the things mentioned in the book I did pick up several additional ideas to help me get even more organized.

I'm glad I spent 60 minutes to read this- I've already validated that 3 specific things that they recommend are saving me time. They do a good job with focus at the beginning by helping you qualify what behaviors and habits you might want to examine, which helps the reader focus their time.

Having spent several years reading Time Management & productivity books, this was a refreshing, even surprising, read. (so much that this is my first review ever...)

Lots of pragmatic & practical productivity tips for work & email using the technology that's available today (read Jan-2014, cloud, apps, mobile...). Also, it's clear that the productivity insights in this book are the result of years of experience from the authors tackling a very busy agenda & business life, but in anyway is the content outdated!

Although I have a very well established personal system for my email & work I found several new tips & information in the book to improve it further (never finished really!). (still, I'm a "folder/project" guy for the moment, sorry! ;) )

Maybe the title cam be a little misleading, I think the book has more to offer than only a (very) good system to tackle overloaded email inboxes.

I also liked:

-the feeling that the authors had an agenda beyond book sales: help people tackling email and being more productive, not just getting a kindle book published (not so common these days....)

-it's a fast read (73 estimated pages) , I appreciate that in time management & productivity books :)

Not a perfect review I guess, but these are my thoughts for the moment.
