I picked this book up from my local library after browsing the shelves for something that would catch my eye. I have been pretty good procrastination wise but I have been drifting along career wise for a little while. This book looked quite interesting and it looked nice and concise so I decided it would be worth a shot.

This book is broken into 21 sections with each section dealing with a different part of the overall time management plan. At the end of each chapter there is a short summary which details what your next step should be and what you should do to make the most of your time. Everything is well explained and laid out in a very easy to read way.

Like a lot of books in this field it is geared more towards middle management types who work in an office environment (this is not me). Despite this I found a lot of good points and there is a lot that I think I will use in my job and life. I planned to take a few notes along the way and when I had finished I ended up with 30 pages worth. ( )

In this glib tract, to "eat a live frog" is to get on with it. Launching his principles of time management, Tracy credits Mark Twain without quote or citation, a tipoff that his "laws" are not a product of rigorous scholarship. A real Twain quote, a Pudd'nhead Wilson epigraph in "Following the Equator," is more elegant and easier to follow: "Make it a point to do something every day that you don't want to do. This is the golden rule for acquiring the habit of doing your duty without pain."

There's some good advice in here, but it's both a bit dated and a bit cliched. Still, by virtue of being concise (rather than padded), it's a good book. If it were any longer it would be 3/5. Actually, it really is a 3/5.

There are some good things in here -- that you will ultimately be judged on effectiveness (actually, only true in certain jobs; there are a bunch of jobs where politics and appearance matter more than task completion, and jobs where adequacy in task completion effectiveness, coupled with good optics management, is the ideal), that there's a flywheel effect from success (when you finish something, you get better and more motivated at finishing), etc.

Something which presented largely the same ideas but using some real-world examples (both anecdotes and data) would be a lot stronger. Also, for me, a presentation using analogy or references to tech would make a lot of these concepts clearer -- "context switching" is a known performance cost in computing, and there are strategies to handle it, which the author didn't include. Economics includes the concept of "sunk costs fallacy", and if he referenced it, could have done a better job.

Fundamentally my problem with the book is he says "don't do X" rather than "this is how to do X in the least bad way". A blanket proscription on multitasking is nice, and encouraging single-minded focus on a single task to completion, but to make that work, you have to have either other people enabling you (by buffering interactions with the outside world), or you have to set up systems to, e.g. downconvert phone calls and IMs into email and then handle all of those in a single 30 minute period at the end of the day. There are tips for multitasking like breaking things up by location or time, leaving tasks in states which are easily resumed, etc. ( )

Most of this book can basically be boiled down to "focus on the key activities that you believe provide you the most value." Each chapter tries to look at this goal in a bit of a different light. Some chapters feel really similar to others, but since the book is so terse and to the point this isn't really as big a deal as it is in most other self-development books. Taking an approach of reviewing the chapter concept and then skipping to another section if it doesn't seem promising works well.

Some parts of this book are inconsistent - for example, Chapter 4 says "Many people say that they work better under the pressure of deadlines. Unfortunately, years of research indicate that this is seldom true." but then Chapter 13 encourages you to "Set deadlines and subdeadlines on every task and activity." I don't think this is necessarily a huge issue, because to me the book was mostly about providing new ways of thinking about prioritization. Still, it seems weird to put such diametrically opposed advice into the same volume.

Overall, I'd recommend reading it. I got enough insights that this is worth the ~hour you will spend on it. A few selections that jumped out to me:
* Self-esteem is the reputation you have with yourself.
* zero-based thinking: “If I were not doing this already, knowing what I now know, would I start doing it again today?”
* You'll never catch up on everything that you want to do. You have to accept that lower-priority tasks will likely never get done, if you are doing a good job prioritizing. ( )

This book has a lot of practical advice for getting things done. Even though I knew most of it, I found that reading the book (it's short) was worthwhile just as a source of motivation. It's going to change your life, but it might help. ( )
