Much of the book has nothing to do with lists and is a re-hashing of organizing tips and tricks that anyone interested in time management had already heard a hundred times. The main message seemed to be, "if you have something you need to remember to do, write it down." I think I could figure that one or for myself.
It also seems to me that the author misses the boat on the most effective use of lists which is a standing checklist for anything you have to do more than once. While she alludes to it and has a couple of samples, most of her examples are of one time lists. I also thought it curious that the author's most comprehensive checklist for a repeatable activity was for a destination wedding. Just how many times would one have to plan a destination wedding for themselves?
Bottom line is that I found this book to be like so many of the "blog-to-book-deal" genre; light on substance, obnoxiously chatty in style, and completely lacking in originality.

Nothing really revolutionary, a reasonable read.
I thank you for writing a great productive book in this world of multi tasking.
Soon after listening your interview from the podcast with Farnoosh on SO MONEY. I instantly ordered your book from Amazon.in.
Although it took more than 3 weeks to deliver, it was worth waiting. Slowly, I have started inculcating the daily ritual of writing and striking off from my to-do list. Hope everybody would benefit in reading and implementating for the rest of their life.
My Wishful Thinking is happening due to my Listful Thinking.
