Publisher's Summary

You have so much you need to accomplish today. Your list is a mile long and you find yourself getting interrupted every other minute. You'd like to tell everyone to leave you alone, but most of the interruptions are coming from you! You think of a phone call you need to make or a website you need to check and before you know it you're answering email, checking Twitter, and finding a million other things to occupy your time.

What the Critics Say

"This is an easy read with a life-changing message to all of us who have "too much to do and not enough time." Since Staffan introduced me to the Pomodoro Technique, I have become a better person, both professionally and in my private life. This is a book I wish I had read years ago!"

    "Making a short instruction loooong!"

    I was curious about the technique before listening to it. However the instructions are tediously overlong and could be summarized on one sheet of paper. Also, the content isn't 100% audiobook-friendly, but better suited for paper where you can skip around, get an overview and see the pictures.

    "made all the difference to me using the technique"

    I thought I sort of used the pomodoro technique in the past but after listening to this audio book I realized I barely scratched the surface and was doing simple things wrong - now I'm actually reaping benefits!
    Eg. it explains the theory of taking breaks so it becomes an integral part of the system.

    "OK, but too long"

    About five times longer than it needs to be. Also his English is not very good. He basically takes a simple subject and then complicates it. Check Google, Amazon and YouTube for alternatives.

    "Could be shorter"

    Narrator speak too fast, and I wish there was a .8x option on audible, .5x doesn't work for me. All the chapters could be summed up and repeat content. What's with a cucumber and artichoke joke at the beginning of each chapter..

    "An Effective Process & Tool Box for Work Flow"

    I have studied many productivity systems.
    So far this seems the best combination yet encountered of theory and practice. It gives step by step instructions, and deals forthrightly with real world challenges and adaptations.

    "Great!"

    I started using this technique this week. So far am feeling more productive as I'm now conscious of my work. The book is great, very practical and well written.

    "Nice work!!!"

    The technique and the content are fascinating but I struggled with narration speed at times.

    Story
    "Get the Original"
    What did you love best about The Pomodoro Technique Illustrated?

    It was a good introduction to the pomodoro technique, backed up by a forward from Francesco Cirillo, who created the technique himself.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Original Pomodoro Technique by Francesco Cirillo


    Did Don Azevedo do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No. This book was not a character book (except when the vegetables were talking ... and I couldn't figure out why the vegetables were talking.) Even then, it was difficult to tell who was speaking.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The introduction where Francesco Cirillo introduces the technique and talks about his student (the author of this book)


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, this book is a decent introduction to the technique. But if you want to know what the pomodoro technique is truly about, Go read Francesco Cirillo's original work.
