This was a very interesting book. Owning my own business and dealing with a few issues myself, I am always looking for ways to improve my productivity. I always feel that efficiency is an area where I can improve. If you are looking for an easy, go to self help guide, this is not that book. This book is based round the tips and tricks of 30 professionals who have succeeded in increasing their own productivity. In each interview section, they discuss the ways in which they got to where they are, how you can do what they did and even give you lots of apps you can use to aid you. It does mean that you have many different views on how to achieve you goal, rather than just one, but you don't have a step by step method. I actually prefer this, as it left me to pick and choose the sections and bit I liked and wanted to try myself, as well as leaving the option open as to how I could go about the process. I have always enjoyed research and furthering my knowledge, and I feel as though this book allows for both and really helped me put a few great methods and ricks into place. If you are looking for ideas on improvement, but aren't a fan of straight throughout how to guides, like myself, then this is perfect for you. It is chock full of valuable information and make for and interesting read. **I received this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
In "The Productivity Book", thirty professionals from the US, UK, Australia, India, Canada, and Europe talk about time management in interview format. The interviewees are asked (among other things) about how they start their day, how they stay productive throughout the day, and how they organize themselves for the next day. They are also asked to share their favorite productivity tips and apps. The interviews are followed by an Afterword by the author summarizing the findings of the 30 interviews. This book will give you lots of handy tips for managing your time, straight from the mouths of recognized experts in the fields of productivity and time management. The highlighted quotes within each interview are a nice touch. The interviews don't appear to be in any particular order, and l would have preferred the contributors to be arranged in alphabetical order. I found out about some great apps to help me manage my day and increase my productivity. Some I had never heard of: Doodle, Focus@Will, Todoist, TurboScan. And some are old favorites: my calendar, Evernote, Pomodoro Technique. At some points, the book reads like a testimonial for the Doodle productivity app, developed by the company for which the author is the CEO. If you're in a hurry, you will get some great tips just by reading the Afterword at the end of the book. Very informative and full of practical advice. I received this book in return for an honest review. Full blog post: https://booksdirectonline.blogspot.com/2016/03/the-productivity-book-by-michael-brecht.html
