Jenn's Review:

Disclaimer: I am a productivity nut! I have so much on my plate on any given day, that I am always on the hunt for new ways to streamline my day, so... when I got Zak's email about this book and his promo (I was able to get the book for free on Amazon for a limited time), I snatched it up and stuck it on my to-read list for a day I couldn't come up with another book to read.

That out of the way, I had just such an opening not long after purchasing this little gem. And right out of the gate, I fell in love with the premise of this self-help book: Knowing what to do, and doing it, are two completely different concepts.

August of last year, I reviewed Level Up, by the same author, and since that book had a number of useful ideas, I looked forward to diving into this book. 

Mr. Khan's editing still leaves some to be desired (though this book had fewer glaring mistakes than Level Up), however, the premise of the book, along with the concepts he outlines in Productivity Handbook are spot on.

As a fellow productivity fan, the concepts in this book are mostly things I'm already doing, i.e.: actually doing the work. You can study ideas and suggestions and concepts until the cows come home, but folks, if you don't put it in gear and DO, you're never going to get anywhere.

This book is a quick, easy read at just over 100 pages (105 to be exact). I was able to read it in a single afternoon, and in the introduction, Mr. Khan promises to lay out his concepts in easy language that a twelve year old could grasp. As the parent of a twelve year old, I'm very tempted to put him to the test, but for now, I'll refrain. Sam already has a reading list for reviews that is amazing.

I can vouch for every single one of the ideas laid out in this simple volume. If you are aiming for some big goals this year, you'll want this at the top of your reading list. As in - get the book now. Read it today. Don't procrastinate. (Because procrastination gets everyone to the same place: nowhere)
