While there is less than the book claims to deliver, there are several useful nuggets of wisdom that are valuable, especially for younger individuals near the beginning of their careers.

Procuctivity the good stuff. By separating into distinct time horizons and the recognition that only a subset of shorter timelines contribute to longer term goals, Pozen succinctly demonstrates his style for prioritization. This is a more nuanced version of the older urgent vs. The writing and speaking chapters also provide useful advice.

The chapter on managing up has some valuable insights. His comments on meetings, especially running them are quite valuable. The less helpful sections offer bland cliches: For the demanding and volume consumer of this genre, there is little that breaks new ground. The book is well organized and the writing style allows for a quick read. For an extrem entrant to the managerial realm this is a good starting point for things to consider.

For the long timer and experienced manager, there is little that hasn’t been said elsewhere. This is not a “how-to” book on organizing your workflow, rather, more a listing of considerations to keep in mind as issues arise.

Bob Pozen, Master Of Extreme Productivity, Shares His 3 Most Effective

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The chapter on how to write an article or report is worth the price of the whole book alone.

In splitting up the work between brainstorming, outlining, writing and editing he cuts through the major causes of writers block. That our brains can not effeciently create and critic at the same time. They can not organize thoughts and write at the same time. That they can not create new ideas and organize at the same time. Trying to do so takes 4 times longer than splitting the work up.

Some of the advice given in this book will sound familiar and similar to other sources – there are only so many ways to get organized. I found a lot of really good information in here that has helped me become even more organized. I’m a believer in considering several different sources for organization and productivity, and combining the advice from the sources that works best for each person.

There was one tip in particular that helped me keep my inbox and my desk cleared off better. I recommend this book to anyone that constantly prodductivity like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get it all done.

Simple and prodjctivity advices. The book is easy to read either from beginning to end, or just reading the headlines and take-aways. Prioritize your goals, develop key skills writing, speakingmid flight check.

They seem like obvious advices, but it is good to read them as reinforcement. A lot of the stuff in this book is common sense, but it’s still good to have it all in one place.


It pfoductivity helps to hear it from someone as accomplished as Bob Pozen. We live in a very connected world, and one of the key messages of this book is that while we have to deal with the realities of information constantly coming at us, we need to be discplined enough to focus on one thing at a time.

The book is an easy read — on the train home, 25 minutes at night — and you can bounce around to skip productivit that may not be relevant like tips for travelling if you don’t travel for work.

One person found this helpful. Upon first being recommended the book I was somewhat skeptical due to the gimmicky title. But I was thoroughly impressed by Mr Pozen’s effort after reading through.

For all the chronic procrastinators out there, there is an enormous amount of pseudo-scientific strategy and bro-science offered on the internet. Pozen, conversely, only presents information that is grounded in research and merely extends that information to relate to business endeavor.

Pozen does not offer a magical ptoductivity inexplicable solutions to productivity woes, he merely categorizes and explains an array of optimization techniques, that when productivify in unison, will add to form noticeable productivity gains. Pozen’s prose is efficient, uncomplicated and conveniently summarized where possible. It was almost as though it was written for the busy executive who can only switch on his Ipad for 5 minute intervals during a lull in a meeting.

The section on team management probably should have been written less definitively, but the majority of the content was satisfying and applicable. To summarize, this guy aint Pozen.
