Okay, I know it is hard to believe.

I know it sounds ... well just creepy that I'd say it, but ...

This book has actually changed my life.

If you:
* use Outlook for your email
* get inundated with actionable items daily in your inbox
* have that never ending list of "to do" items playing through your mind like the credits of a full length action thriller that was filled in ten countries with a mention of every single person that even thought about helping in the production of it

Then this book is

The title should tell you that this is a very niche book, but it may not prepare you for the very very specific system inside. For those who live in outlook, Michael Linenberger provides a highly-structured system for managing the neverending flood of incoming tasks disguised as emails. Once set up, the system auto-focuses on items that you need to do today specifically and this week in general, while those items that are 'over the near horizon' get hidden from the list. But don't worry, they ar ...more
I felt I could better utilize my Outlook system at work, was recommended this book through a colleague on Yammer. I gave it a shot and really liked a lot of the principles.

It synchronizes nicely with Getting Things Done by David Allen. It's nicely laid out so it is easy to find what you are looking for and skip what you don't want or doesn't apply t ...more

This book is ideal for anyone that receives 75+ emails per day with tasks to complete embedded in those emails. You must also use MS Outlook, preferably the most recent version.
This book is actually a methodology for managing tasks and emails and includes how to configure Outlook to be most productive.
Nothing will fall between the cracks any more and I would say that my personal productivity has doubled because of this book.
Highly recommend to managers in the IT world.
