    Robert C. Pozen taught a full course load at Harvard Business School while serving as the full-time chairman of a global financial-services firm. He's written six books and hundreds of articles, raised a family with his wife of more than four decades, and served on many boards of local charities and public companies. Pozen is a prince of productivity, a man who has worked smarter and faster than almost everyone around him for more than 40 years.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is a nice book worth reading. Most people figure all this stuff out by age 25. Therefore it is best for younger people. This does not mean us older folks could not benefit from reminders. The name implies a potentially huge paradigm shift in thinking. A better title would be "Consistent Productivity: Uncle Bob tells us how to Get Stuff Done"


    Would you recommend Extreme Productivity to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes I would recommend this book to someone who has trouble getting out of their own way. Super achievers would not be challenged.


    What about Arthur Morey’s performance did you like?

    Friendly voice easy to understand. That is probably why I gave the subtitle Uncle Bob tells us how to get things done.


    Did Extreme Productivity inspire you to do anything?

    Listening to all of Robert Pozen's accomplishments makes me think his DNA is different than the rest of us mortals. His ability to absorb knowledge makes him an outlier. Not to be funny but my first inspiration was to give up. There is no way I could hold down as many jobs at one time as he did. Later in the book I realized he puts his pants on one leg at a time like everyone else. He seems like someone I would enjoy meeting. That is high praise coming from me.
