“The Myth Of Multitasking”

“The Myth Of Multitasking” – Dave Crenshaw


This easy read from Dave Crenshaw looks at multitasking and just how effective it is… or isn’t.  Written in a narrative, story-like style, I polished this book off in a morning.

Dave renames ‘multitasking’ as ‘taskswitching’ and gives some powerful and simple exercises to demonstrate the time loss that takes place every time we switch tasks.  He also gives practical tips to reduce interruptions – such as the setting up of regular meetings with people who report directly to you.

I’d recommend it for anyone who’s new to time management, and who is looking for some simple, practical ways to bring their time under control.
