His succinct advice helps you on your way with 35 practical tips. getAbstract recommends his pithy manual to anyone seeking to be more productive and to achieve a higher quality of life.

    Some good ideas ... My only point is -we dont usually lack good strategies ... we are unable to execute consistently.I wish there are ideas on execution,behavior change using science ... That would make the daily edge a complete package.

    #30DaysofSummaries this is a very effective summary for someone to kick start implementing a certain behavior. The points I really liked are: The Power hour, and Logging everything you do.

    #30daysofsummaries if you are a beginner and you have never touched any other time management book, this may be a good compendium of tips to get you started. if you are a hard core Productivity system follower or continually research looking for something new and unique you won't find it here based on this abstract.

    Seems to be not innovative and repetitive to standard time-management book.
