Wow! I really like this one. I listened to the CD and it was like having a coach or mentor teaching you a great way to organize your thoughts, your work, and your life.

This has fantastic, practical advice about tidying not only your workspace but also your work flow, including tasks, decisions, meetings, and even networks. (The last item was something I could happily implement right away.)

The authors are realistic about what can be done when you're working for someone else -- if your boss insists on your presence at the meeting in spite of your best arguments against it, you have to go even if it is a waste of time -- but many of their case studies are about people who work for themselves and still find themselves doing things that aren't serving their larger purpose. And while they advocate for finding another job if the one you have really makes you miserable, they also caution against "grass is always greener" syndrome, and advise ways to find joy in your current job before you take the plunge.

Recommended for anyone who wants to make their job more enjoyable.
