    "Redundant sales pitch"

    This audiobook is just one big commercial to sell the speaker's daytimer product. Every single chapter begins with the same 5 minute commercial bio for the author. It is really annoying. There may be some good material in here but it was too annoying to have to listen the the same spiel over and over again. Very disappointing - audible subscribers should not have to pay for a perpetual sales pitch.

    "Too much advertising"
    If you could sum up The Ultimate Time Management System! in three words, what would they be?

    Useful tips


    Any additional comments?

    The program was good, but forcing the listener to hear an ad about Laura and her dayplanner between every segment was torture. Once and the beginning and then the end, but really, after every segment! It took away from the usefulness of the program

    "Laura Stack Teaches Ultimate Time Management Tips"

    Time Managment books and audios are a dime a dozen. I have been very pleased with my purchase of the audio version of The Ultimate Time Management System!: Featuring The Productivity Pro® Planner by Day-Timer. I don't know that I will switch to the Day-Timer, but this book has given me several ideas for reviving my use of my old standby Franklin Planner. I tried to make the switch last year to a blackberry and go completely electronic, Laura explained in this book what went wrong with that plan and why I might be paper oriented. I realize now that I need a hybrid time management system, utlizing traditonal paper for my monthly calendar, task list and notes. Then turn to my smart phone for e-mail, contact management, and daily calendar on the go.

    I realized about three month into the blackberry that I was losing productivity and performance, losing track of things because I was becoming a scrapper, putting notes on scraps of paper to enter into the blackberry later.

    Yes you are going to hear things you have heard before, there are only so many time management ideas. She touches on some of GTD's concepts, either she read David Allen or the person that David Allen read...

    Laura Stack speaks in atone that keeps your attention, obviously you would expect this since she is a professional speaker, but I thought I would mention it. I have had audio books where the reader was monotone and made me want to go to sleep.

    The short version, Laura Stack provides many beneficial ideas, some are very basic, others are more complex, so this book is for people at every level of time management. Let's face it if you already knew everything about time management you would not be searching for a book on the topic. This book is worth the use of the monthly audible credit. You will get at least one beneficial idea to save you time, and if that idea saves you one hour per week, what is an hour of your time worth..more than $15.00 I'll bet.
