The Productivity Book by Michael BrechtAs a mother, and a homeschooling mother at that, productivity can be a daily struggle. So when I was asked to review The Productivity Book by Michael Brecht as part of the current book tour, I was actually pretty excited to do so. I found the book to be not only helpful, but quite enjoyable to read. My kids are my main priority, especially since I have decided to invest in home schooling them: this is quite literally a 24 hour a day job, seven days a week, with no vacation time. And I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else, because it is wonderful and rewarding. That all being said, there are certainly times when there seems to be a million things to do and so little time to do it all in. That’s called life with kids. I know that even those parents out there who don’t home school – some of the interviewees in this book for example – you are all in the same boat. You know how much your time can get constrained and how difficult it can be to fit everything into the 24 hours we are all allotted each day. As well-oiled as your routine may be, I don’t think there is a parent out there who doesn’t continue to look for tips and tricks to make everything just a little easier and more productive. So naturally, I wanted to see what wisdom existed within these pages.
Here is the basic run down. The Productivity Book is a book of interviews with 30 working professionals from various different industries discussing their tips and tricks for good time and task management. For a non-fiction, advice book, I found it to be actually quite light and easy to read, and actually quite entertaining, since some of the interviewees have a pretty good sense of humor.
