Good little book. This was actually a lecture that he summarized in a book. Most how-to/time management books are thick, you must invest a lot of reading time to get a small amount of actual knowledge out of them. Randy's book is short, to the point, and helpful. The most important tip to take away from it is a matrix TO DO list. Focus on the important things, don't drown in the every-day little things.

This book is short and sweet. It helped me once I realized it was pulled from a lecture he gave (so I was reading it expecting spoken language, rather than written language). Good points and good reminders about how to value your own time. It's a short and sweet book (took me about 45 minutes total).

Liked what I read, but I didn't have time to finish it. *sigh*

Usually I don't read books about time management, and frankly, this book didn't offer any new insights to me. But this isn't about whether this book helped me, but whether or not I recommend it.
I do and that's because of one simple reason: this book is short while still offering a ton of advice that might be helpful.

I did not really read the book, even though it is available online, but I really enjoyed watching the lecture Prof. Randy gace online. It is worthwhile to watch the lecture again and again as there is al lot of things to learn about time management from it.

Absolutely recommended talk which every human who values her/his own time must watch. Very relevant and pragmatic to any kind of workplace in today's world. While you're at it, please do me a favor and read Randy Pausch's "The Last Lecture" to better appreciate his genius.

Weber doesn't have this one. I'm putting it on this list so I can hopefully remember it one day. Yeah right! If I need a time management book do you really think I'm going to remember to read it?

I watched the lecture that this apparently is a transcript of. The way he simply explained things and showed how they work for him impressed me.

I am flattered and embarassed by all the recent attention to my "Last Lecture." I am told that, including abridged versions, over six million people have viewed the lecture online. The lecture really was for my kids, but if others are finding value in it, that is wonderful. But rest assured; I'm hardly unique. Send your kids to Carnegie Mellon and the other professors here will teach them valuable ...more
