Written by the creator and chief refiner of the technqiue - Francesco Cirillo - the book breaks down the latest buzz concept in GTD: Pomodoro.

Using clear and instructive language, Cirillo does a fairly good job of treating to the theory behind the technique, explaining for example why humans do best when we work in spurts of roughly 25 minutes. I am also impressed by his continuous use of practical illustrations in showing how Pomodoro may be applied in everyday contexts - from studying to completing work related assignments.

It is a very short read (45 pages!) and should not take more than a few hours to sift through. Although, having read it, I intend to continuously reference it again and again as I now try to actually apply the method to my own work.

As an aside, I should mention that the book is available as a free PDF at
