Really enjoying this book- and not just because I am a bit 'messy'in the way my business is organized. To the naed eye, it looks like a cluttered mess of piles and papers, but I know where everything is... The authors make a convincing case that this is just as efficient, timewise, as being obssessed with order. Very readable, as well.

Interesting book, somewhat long-winded in parts and caused me to space out during entire segments in which the author expounded on research studies and/or examples, but the material was interesting and humorous at times. The main point is that everyone is different, and some people thrive on less organized living and working than others. Obviously the guy who wrote the earlier review didn't really listen to the book, as there were various real life examples that I though were pretty believable. I know I work better with a small amount of "clutter" on my desk, as I tend to never revisit items I've filed away. But, again, we're all different. I don't think I would have read this in print, but it made for interesting insights during my commute.
