Eat That Frog! - Review
Eat That Frog! is a book that a few of my favorite authors have recommended, but I never picked up a copy until last week. Very glad that I did, it is an excellent time management/productivity book that gets right to the point. Even if you just pick three concepts to implement, any three concepts, I predict your productivity will double. Is there some obvious information in it? Sure there is, but like the author says in the introduction, this book brings the concepts to the forefront of our minds.
Very short book - can read in a couple of hours. Makes it easy to recommend.
Information is solid and practical. Almost like a Cliff's Notes of productivity techniques.
Some great questions to ask of yourself and to ask of those you are mentoring.
Practical steps to implement the techniques are given at the end of each chapter, making it easy to put into practice.
Not much new information . . . not necessarily a con, but it is what it is.
Further reading suggestions for any given topic would have made this an outstanding work.
In short, this is one of the best and probably the first I would recommend to others. Getting started on projects/businesses/writing books and getting more done in less time is a skill that all of us need, and this book will help you get there. Will definitely be buying more copies to give away to others. Highly Recommended.
