This is a great little book on managing time effectively – “little” being the operative word (215 pages). Author Jim Randel and his team have done a great job of researching the literature on the topic. As the author suggests, the information in over 100 books and articles repeats itself. They’ve been able to glean the top 50 principles from this research (included in the book), then reduced these to the ten most important points to remember.
In “Presentation Skills 201″, author William R. Steel sets out to provide a list of tips that will provide experienced speakers with ideas to boost the effectiveness of their presentations. He definitely achieves his aim.
I found this book both enlightening and difficult. Enlightening because of the simple concepts and principles one should adopt when handling difficult conversations. For example, classifying all conversations into:
• The “What Happened ?” Conversation
• The Feelings Conversation
• The Identity Conversation
