Not much useful information. Mainly, just practice something for 25 minutes.There I saved you from having to read it.
5.0 out of 5 starsMore of the Nuts and Bolts of POMODORO Technique
Reviewed in the United States on October 21, 2021
PROS: I love the way this is represented by both the originator of Pomodoro technique and that he can write in an entertaining way. Time management has never been so fun. Although I'm not sure about some of the bookkeeping that Francesco advocates I have incorporated much of the Pomodoro style into my current time management practices. Chapters are well thought out and glide us readers through the technique effortlessly.
CONS: None noted other than fact that their is some work and adaptation involved.
Yes I'd buy this version again and recommend to a friend.

Liked this very much and using it now. Needed this years ago, but I am glad to have found it after researching info to help me with my study sessions. This is also great to use at work for tasks. The non app Pomodoro timer I use at home gets your attention too, it gets your adrenaline going when the alarm sounds for your scheduled break.
5.0 out of 5 starsDownloaded fine for me. New 2018 Preface is present.

I just wanted to post this since only one review of the book was present and it was a one-star claiming the book does't download completely. I took the risk and purchased, it downloaded just fine for me (and fast) and I confirmed all pages were present.
I will update the review soon after I've read this latest Kindle Version!
The book is a quick read and enough to understand the ins and outs of the Pomodoro Technique. I've tried the technique even before reading it and loved how I didn't get exhausted at the end of my long day. It's probably the most simple time management technique out there.
4.0 out of 5 starsA simple concept to understand but challenging in practice.

I think that this book exemplifies the concept of keeping it simple. The author thoroughly prepared the reader for applying the Pomodoro technique to their lives as individuals and as a part of a team, the latter I was not expecting. He even prepares you for the mental/emotional battles that you will inevitably face internally. I appreciated the simple style of writing and the easy read. I will consider this a reference book and will return to it for reiteration on applying the method.
3.0 out of 5 starsGreat concept - Somewhat complicated. Could be broken into two books.

I like parts of this book (the beginning and the end). While the information on leading teams using Mr. Cirillo’s Pomodoro technique is helpful it could almost be two separate books for him.
I found the middle of the book a struggle to read through.
I struggle with the timer ticking noise distracting and struggle to see why it is crucial particularly in a workplace. Also I wasn’t expecting to be filling out todo lists and keeping track of failing on another form.
I’ll be reviewing this again soon - I can see how the timer approach could be beneficial in a focused bursts of work and like the idea a lot!!
The essence of the technique is great, but I find the writing in the book to be dreadful. A tedious, at times confusing read. Why use long sentences and academic language to explain a concept build on simplicity? That to me overcomplicates things unnecessarily. Would advise everyone to just look up the technique online. There are many articles and tutorials who break it down
5.0 out of 5 starsEine Methode, die einfach anzuwenden ist und sofort wirkt.

Die Pomodoro Technik ist super. Mir hat sie sofort geholfen meinen Arbeitstag besser zu strukturieren und konzentrierter zu arbeiten. Das Buch bietet alles, um die Technik sofort anzuwenden. Es beschreibt die Methodik und die Anwendung sehr verständlich und gibt zudem hilfreiche Tipps.
