    " Super easy read. I was assigned this book to read for work. While it didn't provide me with new information, I like the suggestion of having an template. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Serquinia | 9/21/2013

    " Super quick read - less than a couple of hours. Good info about managing your email and good advice for getting others in your work life to adopt at least some of the principles. Looking forward to our team defining and using these strategies! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheri Radford | 7/21/2013

    " Although I enjoyed the content of this book and found it extremely helpful, I found it difficult to get past the central conceit of a man having lengthy conversations with a businessman who has turned into a hamster. It was too cutesy for the useful, informative content. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Reneeo83 | 6/8/2013

    " Good book. Helped me manage and organize my email so that I am always in control of it and not the other way around. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 5/17/2013

    " Good techniques for managing email and pare overflow both professionally and personally. I will be setting up my Evernotes Notebooks via the COTA-PAO categories. The Harold Hamster stuff got tedious, but overall a good book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 2/2/2013

    " Had to read this book for work. There is some good information, but it could have been summarized in an article, rather than drawn out into a 100+ page book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslee Green | 8/24/2012

    " Great book on how to save time at work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary-Jo | 8/10/2012

    " Some parts of this book should be required reading for everyone in our lives. The book demonstrates how to be courteous in drafting the subject line and the actual body of the e-mail to spare your reader wasted time and frustration. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Peterson | 9/24/2011

    " Not bad -- some good ideas on how to get a handle on E-mail. Need to tailor to your own work environment, especially those who work in Dept of Defense or a non-profit. Didn't like the "hamster" analogy/picture -- seemed kind of trite and sophmoric at times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 9/12/2011

    " I actualy listened to the audio book for this one. I learned a little but it wasn't mind-blowing. I think if you've read Getting Things Done, this won't come as much of surprise. The big take away is to be more critical of the e-mails you send out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 7/26/2011

    " Short read and a little on the slow side. I will do anything to get email under control so it is definitely worth a try! Not sure about COTA but I will give it a go because I have somewhere around 75 folders! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 2/11/2011

    " It was AMAZINGLY helpful at tackling the challenge of "email overload"...which I have been living in for awhile now!
    In a few weeks, I've totally changed my outlook on e-mail and for the first time feel I can manage it on a daily basis.
    A must read for e-mail users! "
