Bilbo Beutlin, der kleine Hobbit, macht sich auf den Weg zum Einsamen Berg, um den rechtmäßigen Schatz der Zwerge zurückzuholen, den der Drache Smaug gestohlen hat. Als er auf seiner Reise einen Ring findet und ihn arglos einsteckt, ahnt er nicht, was für eine Rolle der Ring einmal spielen wird.

Things started off well, but around the halfway point when he went into concrete examples of how to get organized he lost me. Although he makes some passing mention of modern tools such as PDA's (but not smartphones) and MS Outlook, he spends a LOT of time talking about paper-based filing and labeling as well as the use of old fashioned note-taking. Who the heck needs to buy a Brother label maker nowadays? Why should I use a legal pad for day-to-day planning? Apparently he still sees such things as indispensable for someone wanting to get organized. He seriously needs to update this book if he wants his message to stay relevant.
