getAbstract Book Summaries

Personal Productivity Secrets offers unique insights not only into how technology has dramatically changed people’s lives but also into ways people can harness it most productively. The book is written for a broad audience in a highly accessible and engaging way. It nicely illustrates the ways that technology is seductive and how to effectively adopt it without the common pitfalls that lead to inefficiency. Personal Productivity Secrets is, at the same time, informative, provocative, and pragmatic, and the perspective on productivity as achieving one’s significant results is an essential reminder. Most importantly, the book offers practical suggestions that anyone can use—and everybody should use—to manage their lives successfully.
