''Having identified some of the problems facing managers, the book goes on to suggest practical, achievable solutions. There are timely reminders about how to tame the 'technology beast' and to achieve focus on what is really important. If managers are addicted to emails and BlackBerry, then there are work solutions available which are within their control. Likewise in planning their non-working life. There are some interesting anecdotes and guidance on how managers can refresh their thinking.''
