Book Summary Editorial Review

Greg McKeown cuts through the jargon of productivity literature to remind his listners the one thing they are losing sight of in the face of increasing opportunities: no one can have it all. He builds on the personal philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi, Steve Jobs, and other iconic personalities to offer insightful, research-backed, and practical tips for taking back control of your life by embracing the power of less. Any team leader, parent, or individual feeling strained by the weight of a schedule spiraling out of control will find this book invaluable.

Please note: This is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book.
