Product Description:

From the hands-down authority on time management techniques, here is a completely updated edition of the national bestseller. "The Time Trap" is filled with smart tactics, hard-hitting interviews, and handy time management tools to help you squeeze the optimal efficiency--and satisfaction-- out of your workday. Plus, you'll discover practical solutions for pinpointing and combatting the Top Twenty Time Wasters!

Review:

Since it was first published, The Time Trap, by internationally known authority Alec Mackenzie, has indeed become The Classic Book on Time Management, as proclaimed in its subtitle. Based on the theory that self-management is the key to handling the time crunch that we all face, it focuses primarily on Mackenzie's 20 biggest time wasters, such as telephone interruptions, the inability to say "no," and personal disorganization, and offers clear step-by-step ways to combat them. The updated third edition also includes information on time problems caused by technology, downsizing, and self-employment.
