    Great Info - Tedious Read

    I have the Nook Book and the first thing to note is that there is no table of contents. Quite a drag. So make sure you bookmark things you think you'll want to come back to because you'll have to scroll through the whole book to find it again.

    I consider myself pretty savvy with common office software, but as the software changes so regularly it can be hard to keep up with the latest tricks. There was a lot of cool things that can be learned if you're using Outlook 2010.

    I haven't read his other book that describes some of his overall methodology for task management, but I got the sense that the essence was in this book. I have however read Getting Things Done and this book integrates nicely with that technigue.

    However the book can be fairly tedious to read. It attempts to deal with older version of Outlook and Mac versions. This is laudable, but the presentation is difficult since you have to skip sections and they're not labeled very clearly to know when the content reverts back to the version you're interested in.

    The author also often goes into great detail and uses considerable space on subjects that he suggests are not overly useful or should be used sparingly. There is useful content in this, but again it seems like I want to skip large sections, not knowing when it is useful to start reading closely again for the most essential content.

    I would recommend this book, but get ready to "work" through the tedious sections.

    Total Workday Control is Awesome

    Total Workday Control is the best book I've ever read on using Microsoft Outlook effectively. If you get over 100 emails a day and find your Inbox runneth over, this book will change your life. I sat with the book and my computer and made the changes to Outlook as I read. It felt like I was in class. It also felt like the author has been hanging out in my office watching me work. The ability to identify immediate tasks from email and process them, sounds simple, but it you really use this system, it's a major change in how you manage your day. I've already purchased the book for 4 people in our organization and it's been life changing for them too. I highly recommend this book. Thank you Michael Linenberger!!!!

    Follow this system and you will get control...

    I routinely handle 200+ e-mails per day so my Inbox has always been full - and sometimes full of surprises when I managed to let something fall through the cracks by not getting to it soon enough. Michael's system can truly help you get your workday under control. I used the system after attending a seminar and reading the book and within two days I had completely emptied my e-mail Inbox and had my work planned. There was an intense sense of relief because I knew that nothing was waiting in my Inbox that was going to come back and haunt me because I failed to get to it timely.
