This very short book is a succinct and simple overview of the practices of effective people. Utilizing the 80/20 rule, using a simple plan, and affirmations are some of the tools discussed.
The bottom line is there is no easy, magical path to being effective (a word this reviewer likes more than the word "successful"), but a focused planner who doesn't mind hard work will find Greene's book a nice starting point.
This is an unsolicited review.
