A CAPITAL TIME FOR TWEETING, PLUS WHEN TO SHOOT A MOOSE

“Buy Shoes On Wednesday and Tweet at 4:00” is a new advice book which tells the reader the best possible time to get everything done, from flossing ones teeth to visiting Zanzibar. As a public service, I’ve used the information provided in that book to create an ideal day:

First thing in the morning, start a daily ritual that will become a habit (you‘re more likely to stick with it) go to the car wash (it’s less crowded and the machinery is

Very informative book !

Also wonder how long this material stays valid/current.... as his introduction says, look for another a

Interesting book with lots of good advice. A lot of things that seem like they'd be common sense but really aren't that obvious until you think about it......might check out this author's other books too.

Buy Shoes on Wednesday and Tweet at 4:00 is a book all about the best times to buy/sell/do different things. Some info was more helpful than others. It was a quick read and had some good tidbits here and there.

It was okay. I found a couple interesting tips but I really wonder how long this stuff stays valid, like another review pointed out.
