Publisher's Summary

In this business fable, meet Harold, an HR director so overwhelmed by e-mail he feels like a hamster on a wheel. Just in time, Harold meets a coach, a leading expert on e-mail efficiency and etiquette, with a simple system that helps Harold eliminate needless e-mails, write better messages, and file and find information in a flash. He gets immediate results and reclaims his life.

The Hamster Revolution is chock-full of practical advice that really works. Also included in this audiobook is a landmark case study that shows how 2,000 Capital One associates cut their e-mail time by 23 percent while improving e-mail quality by 52 percent. Professionals waste up to a month per year on e-mail, costing their companies billions in missed opportunities. With this simple audiobook, hope and help in combating e-mail glut is finally here.

just ok

While there may be some salvageable hints in this book, the theme of the idealistic student in the body of a hamster gets very annoying through the course of this book.

corny and now a bit old

the story was corny and a bit repetitive. the content is also old now as they talk about pdas. time for an update. the ideas are still valuable and it is short so put up with it.
