It is like a generic book on time management and there are more and better books
out there on this subject. It is not that this info is bad, it is just not new or original and I
did not learn anything that I already did not know from other books on the subject.
The reviewer is the author of the new Kindle book entitled: Sex Education For Adults
Secrets to Amazing Sex and Happily Ever After Too
The author delves into how to use Evernote to assist the reader with their organizational needs, and makes further strategic suggestions on utilizing that system. The author leaves the usual, beaten path of this type of self-help book momentarily and breaks some new ground with the discussion about adding allowances onto your schedule for down time, mistakes, and improper planning. Allowing that time and planning for it can prevent having to completely rework your schedule when something goes wrong later. It’s not the type of thing that is usually discussed, and I’m glad it was included. This is a very good book full of good reminders and some new ideas.

Summary: Fairly short book on Time Management with many useful tips that could be found in various other books on the subject but they are summarized very well in this short book.
Pros: Covers a wide range of time management topics including multi-tasking and its disadvantages, talks about noting your time on a schedule and preparing for possible set-backs.
Cons: Font was a little small and would have been nice to see a bibilography of references to other books the author pulled this information from.

Most interesting concepts:
- Mention of Ultradian Rhythm in Chapter 3; interesting concept that teaches 90 minutes of work followed by 30 minutes of rest. Most employers won't allow more than a 15 minute break if you are scheduled to work at least 6 hours. But it's an interesting concept if you are your own boss. Would have liked to see the author give a reference to the origin of this concept for further research.
- There is a bonus video of Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch talking about Time Management at the end of the book
