Sintesi dell'editore

In a compelling business fable, The Myth of Multitasking confronts a popular idea that has come to define our hectic, work-a-day world. This simple yet powerful book shows clearly why multitasking is, in fact, a lie that wastes time and costs money. Far from being efficient, multitasking actually damages productivity and relationships at work and at home.

Great book, short and straight to the point

The Arthur explains how task switch known as multitasking actually hinders efficiency and productivity. For a person who works in large companies or has a business this book will allow you to notice how much money is actually lost when your employees are performing task switching. I know it is hard to not do task switching these days but if this is taken seriously, this will result in better and faster work production. After reading this book I have been able to notice how much task switching I do and I have started to minimize them by dividing the different task in the morning of each day, ordering by priority and focusing on doing one until it is finished, then continue with the next until all tasks are complete. I still need to improve this, but it has helped me out.

Recommend to listen, an excellent short and straight to the point book.

Shallow...

Once you have read the title, you got most of the substance.

Summary of this book:

1. Multitasking is not efficient. It's a myth.
2. If you want to be more efficient, eliminate interruptions and do one thing at a time.

That's it. If you expect more, unfortunately you won't find it here, so I just saved you the price of the book.

Expected but still helpful

The conclusions of the book are totally expected, but unlike similar books/topics, the author provides concrete suggestions and perspective.

interesting - changed the way I thought

changed my views on multi tasking. I'm trying to center in on one thing at a time instead of switch tasking.

Great Read!

This book gave great examples of how you can be more efficient in your day to day schedule. I'll be implementing the tips that were given and multitasking less. I would definitely recommend this read!

How do people still boast about being a great multitasker?

Great advice in an easy to digest narrative. I'm thinking about making this a mandatory listen for all managers.

Knowledge is power, great life changing truths!!

I'm going to have to listen to this book again because i was multitasking all the way through! I am convinced now that multitasking is a lie and that switchtasking is actually what I'm doing and I do see that it is affecting my productivity and my personal relationships. I am very thankful for this book and I would recommend it to anyone!

Short but impactful

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would. Book is told in a conversational storytelling style, that makes it different from other business books. Thoughtful and interesting.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

The book made me look up Dave Crenshaw to see what else he has written.

Effective and reality based

Very easy to follow and easily understood. Multitasking is impossible for humans and The Myth of Multitasking explains the who what and why.
