"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

He doesn't try to sell you a bill of goods that is going to fix everything in your personal and professional life regarding your commitment management. Instead, he helps you build a plan to take you from your current system, whatever it happens to be, to where you want to be. He doesn't tell you where he thinks you need to go and how if you do exactly what he says everything will be fixed.
Francis provides a realistic and helpful viewpoint in the world of time and stress management. I wish I had found this book years ago.
I am convinced that anyone who reads Wade's book will pick up some tips. And for those that follow his complete system, they can have absolutely great returns.
I also wrote a book on time management so I am very sincere when I praise Wade's book.
More than any book, PTBP recognizes that ony one person can help you improve: YOURSELF. And that the best way to improve is to start from where you are, assess your skills in a number of areas defined and explained in the book, and then plan for each skill the steps to level up.
My advice: get the Print version, write on it, put post-it notes on specific pages. There are exercices, reference sheets, reference material that you may want to come back to.
Perfect Time-Based Productivity is the natural next step in Francis' work. Written for the "knowledge professional" this book will help professionals increase their productivity both now and in the future. Using universal fundamentals, Francis guides readers through an evaluation of their current skills and shows them the steps necessary to make improvements in their time management system.
It's important to understand that Francis is talking about fundamentals and skills, not methods. So the reader gains clarity regarding what changes need to occur. Then they will implement methods best suited to their environment, personality, and strengths. Since each person is acquainted with what techniques do and don't work for them, it is refreshing that the reader isn't being asked to utilize approaches that won't be functional.
Because Francis is asking the reader to change core habits, the productivity gains are maintainable. Furthermore, Francis addresses the need to review the systems periodically. This is crucial in keeping the systems sustainable over time.
In this age of quick fixes that usually don't stand the test of time, the foundations in Perfect Time-Based Productivity will endure because they are based on both research and individuation.

I learned why I had no problem with managing my tasks until I started graduate school. I also learned the exact habits I need to adopt to have the perfect approach to productivity for my needs. These habits aren't new to me, but I was surprised to discover that my own frustrations with my work can be traced back to how ingrained these habits are (or are not).
I loved reading the research related to productivity. That really was new to me!
This book will remain a reference for me. Highly recommended to beginners and advanced productivity geeks alike.
His book provides a unique set of productivity-oriented skills that can be assessed, developed, and customized to meet the unique needs of the individual.
These skills are supported by a very comprehensive list of academic sources, empirical research, thousands of hours of training experience, and helpful anecdotes.
In his book, he also explains why much of the “time management” advice found on so many blogs, quoted in so many books, or taught in so many courses ultimately fails to achieve its desired results.
He is clear that there are no “silver bullets” and that improving these skills is a difficult and at times a frustrating process, but the concepts, ideas, and resources provided in his book provide a framework that individuals can follow as they embark along their own, self-driven, productivity improvement journeys.
