A book that acknowledges the role that technology plays in overwhelming us and making our lives more complicated instead of simpler. It reads as a how-to guide to help us learn how to manage technology, ourselves, and work while still allowing for the things we enjoy. Good points in this book, and very easy to read.

Stress, busyness, information - it's all around you and it seems there's so much of it, and it's so insistent, and it's so loud, an it's so invasive. And in reading Jeff Davidson's latest resource for leaders, managers, and just about everyone, it's clear that the pressure is here to stay, at work and at home - and it will get worse. There is no returning to an earlier, simpler, unhurried time. So....we need some strategies, some tools, and some...breathing space. Fortunately, Jeff Davidson makes good on his title. Breathing Space starts with a clear and compelling analysis of why we feel so pressured. The reader is then focused on very positive, healthy strategies to deal with a world where 565,000 books are published each year, 95 million printers are spewing paper from at least 95 million computers, and the typical executive receives 225 pieces of unsolicited mail each month. In 22 succinct, comortably paced chapters, Breathing Space offers practical and innovative strategies for clearing up the clutter, breaking through procrastination, organizing your workspace, managing your reading, and choosing your priorities wisely - among other work and personal challenges. Breathing Space attacks paper clutter with a vengeance, as in - get rid of it! Eighty percent of the paper we save will never be needed. Most importantly, the reader learns how to conrol paper at the intake point, so that it never piles up in the first place.

    I bought other copies of Jeff Davidson's book so I was interested in acquiring this one when I saw a mention of it. He has a very good writing style that makes things seem as if they as within your grasp. His approach is almost conversational. His solution to pressing problems are sometimes bold but never so far out and left field that they lose practicality. I like the overall viewpoint of this book and recommend it because I think it represents a sound approach to tackling the plague of always having too much to do.
