Book Reviews

One of the things I'd like to see on this site is book reviews. Anybody up for any of the following books, or have other suggestions?

  • Stephen R. Covey's First Things First
  • Stephen R. Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
  • Rita Emmett's The Procrastinator's Handbook
  • David Allen's Getting Things Done (if you're very brave)
  • David Allen's ...uhm... "other book" ;-)
  • Sellen & Harper's The Myth of the Paperless Office
  • Anne Lamott's Bird By Bird
  • Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones

Perhaps we should create a custom template? eric...? ;-)

See the bookreview.module already in contributions. :)

I'll take Bird by Bird, if you don't object, as it's been part of my fall reading every year since I was in college. I see that it's in your gear bag (nice pic!), so you might be able to come to it from a fresher point of view. This year I'm looking forward to it (I've got to finish Chesapeake first), because this will be the first year I've read it with GtD in mind.


Procrastinator's Handbook

I'd take this one, but I don't think I'd ever get around to it.

creativity and writing books

I have several books on creative writing and art and productivity, etc. I can pick one and write a review on it. Of course, I was planning on incorporating my reviews into my column... if that would work?


That sounds great to me.

That sounds great to me.

reviews on the same book by

reviews on the same book by more than one person could be helpful. just a thought.

Another Book to Review-

Moleskine Pocket Sketchbook

Sort of funny to do a review on a blank book, especially using a standard format used in reviewing books with text, but this would be the site for it.

Reviews on "tools"

Actually, the whole idea of reviewing tools like Moleskines, planner types, certain makes of pens, cases, sketching supplies, and so on is quite brilliant. I, for one, would love to see reviews like this.

Anyone up for a review of your favourite tool? (That includes anyone who would like to do a guest-post, as well....)

all my best,
a million monkeys typing :

On that note, perhaps

On that note, perhaps software like Open Office, Scribus, etc...

Umm...did I just volunteer?
