Zen and the Art of Productivity: 27 Easy Ways to Have More Time, Earn More Money and Live Happier


Book Reviews:

I love how simple (yet complete) this is. Alan’s clear, no BS writing style was refreshing. I’ve read A LOT of books on this topic (and it’s clear that Alan has too), and this is the quintessential “how-to” encyclopedia of productivity. From “The Setup” to “The Solutions”, I was pleased by the implementable tips. This will be a great resource for me in my job. My only regret is that it’s not a paper copy, so I could easily highlight pages to reference and share with my own clients! (But I’ll get over it!)

Zen and the Art of Productivity is a wonderful book to help calm the mind from the chaos of everyday life. Divided into 27 easy-to-digest topics – from organizing stuff to time management and many wonderful ideas in between. It’s a great resource for adults with ADHD or ADHD-like behavior. Each chapter stands alone so readers can pick and choose topics relevant to their day, to particular issues, their life.

Alan Brown writes an incisive book on how to get things done. Whether you are just looking for productivity tips or are dealing with ADHD, this book provides clear guidance on how to achieve more while getting happier. I recommend this book highly!
