You are correct, but Frank goes further than most books on the market. Throughout, he provides customized examples that you’ll connect with immediately. He also focuses on the overall goal of digital organization; the content is applicable to any platform.

Dr. Buck, once again you're helping us overcome our time-management struggles. Too many interruptions? Chapter 3. Want to be more organized? Chapters 4 and 5. Email out of control? Chapter 8. You can go on wishing things were different, or you can forgive yourself and read this book. Your time is now."

"The main lesson in the book is that anyone can write a to-do list, or have a sticky note system on their desk, but ultimately you need everything in one place. With technology at our fingertips, this has never been easier.
Each chapter offers a different resource, and then the last chapter not only summarizes key points but also offers a dozen other quick tips and ways to integrate many of the tools so they can work together"
