Publisher's Summary

If you're like most people, you use less than 20% of the power of your technologies. How can you get the most use out of the incredible tools right at your fingertips? This book tells you how.

TurboTime discusses simple, inexpensive ways to maximize what you probably already own. It's written in plain English, not techno-babble, so even if you're technologically inexperienced, you'll walk away with specific ideas you can apply tomorrow.

This isn't a "what-keystroke-to-hit" kind of book. It's a motivational and informational guide to help you get excited about more effectively using the tools you already have. It explains productivity tools you may know about, but aren't using. It shows you why you would want to use a tool, and tips on using it.

The information in this book will help you easily and quickly accomplish more. Topics include: understanding and using macros for repetitive keystrokes; using e-mail effectively; keeping on top of your schedule; maximizing an electronic rolodex/contact manager; creating and showing presentations via computer; backing up data easily and regularly; and automating repetitive tasks.

Not what I expected!

When I read the synopsis for this book I thought this would be a great guide for me. I was so wrong. The fisrt part of the audio is the author giving a seminar and the second part is her being interviewed. I found no meat in this recording. I was looking for techniques on how to use technology not descriptions of what technologies are available. I can only recommend this audio to a person who is just entering the business world and has no clue what types of productivity tools are available to them.

NOT a book...an (edited) seminar

This is 40 minutes' worth of a seminar and appears to be heavily edited. There are 20 minutes' worth of interview, much of which REPEATS the information delivered in the first 40 minutes.

A subsequent review of Ms. Morgan's web site and Amazon.com reviews of the book this seminar is based on reveals that the book itself is more of a pamphlet at ~80 pages... and not very well received by its readership.

I am truly disappointed in this one. For the price I paid, I expected A LOT more.
