Publisher's Summary

There's an old saying: if you eat a live frog first thing each morning, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Using "eat that frog" as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also the one that might have the greatest positive impact on your life, Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day. You'll not only get more done faster, but get the right things done. In his trademark high-energy style, acclaimed speaker and best-selling author Brian Tracy cuts to the core of what is vital to effective personal time management: decision, discipline, and determination. He reminds us: "The purpose of time-management skills, of eating that frog, and getting more done in less time, is to enable you to spend more 'face time' with the people you care about, doing the things that give you the greatest amount of joy in life."

Work focused time management advice

Useful tips but one size fits all approach somewhat grating - very business world orientated. I will however eat more frogs.

How to Write a List

Any additional comments?

Attracted by the title, I was hopeful to learn new tips in time management, planning my day and grasping opportunity. I listened, and I listened. Past road works, past traffic jams, past the M6 motorway at rush hour...I tuned in hoping for the golden chalice, the moment that would inspire me. I have to admit I gave in 10 minutes or so before the end.

In a nutshell I've learned :
1. You should write lists (yep, solid advice but hardly ground breaking?)
2. Prioritise the items on your list (erm, yes, got that bit too)
3. Do the biggest things first.

Perhaps my opinion on this book has been influenced by the fact I've listened in straight after finishing The Success Factors by Jack Canfield (get it!), and unfortunately with my mind buzzing with lots of new ideas, this one barely made the grade.

On the positive side it's nicely narrated and the voice and tone are pleasant to listen to, I just wish it had lived up to the promising title. On the Snog / Marry / Avoid list this book wouldn't get past the first date I'm afraid. There are far more comprehensive and inspiring books available, this has taught me not to be lured by an attractive cover.
