The first thing I notice about a book is the organization, and Creating Time gets high marks for excellent organization--three sections, 16 chapters, with titles that explain in depth what the section contains.

The material is followed by notes, acknowledgements, contributors' and Marney's bio. The foreword is in back, too, because the content begins and ends from the same point, Marney explains.

I've waded through numerous books on managing time over the years, have taught workshops on the subject, and considered myself very knowledgable. Marney made me feel like a novice! Her book is over flowing with creative and innovative activities and concepts, and colorful illustrations to stimulate this right brained thinker. She takes us beyond linear time to view incorporate gratitude, synchronicity, visualization and more. Her explanation and blending of kronos (chronological and predictable) ...more
