"The problem isn't time shortage," notes Stack, a productivity improvement consultant, "it's time usage." Presented here are 100 splendid tips for personal productivity in the workplace, threaded among similar topics (e.g., order, preparation) without repetition. For example, use a visual signal (a hat or armband) to broadcast to coworkers that you are backed up/on deadline but are still available in an emergency.

Have you just ever started a book. Then two weeks have past and you still have no desire to pick back up that book. I think that at the time I was looking for solutions, but realized that I really don't need a whole book about it. I already had the tools to do it myself.

I've picked this book up numerous time during my trips to the library. There are many tips that has helped my productivity. You can't just read it and take it back. This is a work-thru book that takes time. So, it better to buy a copy and keep it next to your desk at the office.

Local Denver author touts herself as the "productivity pro" and breaks down efficiency strategies under the "productive" model. This book is easily digestible since you can simply reference areas of interest and/or greatest challenges.

The first of three books by this author that I read. As such, this was the most useful. (The others reiterated many of the same points.)

Boring, obvious, and annoying. Should have been a long magazine article not a 300 page book.

Not bad as productivity books go. Well tied together. Not much new that I learned.
