    Really great (and short) read on an ideal way to set up your desk for maximal productivity. It goes along with his much fuller book What's Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done . Very good. If you're wanting to read a free version, it's available on his blog.

    Really short. There is a few tips that were really helpful, especially clearing the clutter on your desk. The PLACE acronym was helpful in organizing. And I never realized how underutilized my drawers were. With that said, there was probably only enough content for a few blog posts. I don't know if it was worth the $3 that I spent for the kindle edition. Really short. There is a few tips that were really helpful, especially clearing the clutter on your desk.

    This is a short companion ebook to Perman's longer productivity work ("What's Best Next"). A lot of it seems rather common sense but it does provide a helpful checklist of sorts for reevaluating how you have your work space set up. I made some tweaks to my desk space for the upcoming semester. This is a short companion ebook to Perman's longer productivity work ("What's Best Next").

    Simple book on how to make your work space the most efficient place possible. Some good pointers, but I found the links to his blog the most helpful. There are some really good things there that I've already put into practice. Simple book on how to make your work space the most efficient place possible.

    Helpful! Love the idea of creating a s-ace that brings creativity and pushes away clutter. I know clutter stresses me out and Perman gives some great practical steps

    Most helpful things for me from this book were the PLACE acronym, files not piles, and simplicity. I removed a lot of things from my desk area that I don't use very often. I now just have a computer, an inbox, a pad of paper and a pen. My drawer is now also much more organized.

    I appreciated the ideas on categorizations, work flow, and the reference to having a higher purpose in all work. I would have liked to have more detail on desk placement and equipment for different room structures. Maybe, How to combine an office and bedroom or how to make the most out of an extra small area.

    Helpful. Practical. A bit rarefied and idealistic. I'd like to see some commentary about personality styles. Helpful. Practical. A bit rarefied and idealistic. I'd like to see some commentary about personality styles.
