I found the writing style to be very effective and to the point. I have read similar books which tend to be very "wordy" in presenting their ideas. Not the case here. A lot of useful ideas presented in an effective and clear format.

Very useful. Loved the ideas and are already implementing many of them. Would recommend to anyone looking to get organized.

For even paying 2.99 for this book. You could type in ways to get organized on google and get more practical suggestions. Really not worth it, unless your looking for a "how to use common sense to get organized and stop being so lazy" book.

Easy read, really seems to be working very well for me! Knew a lot of this stuff, but the book has helped me be more creative and think "outside of the box" with it's ideas.
