Instant Productivity - How to Be Productive to Get Things Done Easier and Faster Instantly! by The Instant-Series is a self-help book teaching readers how to be productive in every area of their lives, both on a professional and on a personal level. From how to do things easily to how to do things quickly and everything in between, the book contains both the theory behind the mechanism of productivity as well as exercises and real life examples. The book concentrates on the idea that every problem has a solution and teaches readers how to find the latter. The book ends on a positive note that better productivity means better results, and we should all be able to visualize them and take the necessary steps in order to achieve them.

Instant Productivity - How to Be Productive to Get Things Done Easier and Faster Instantly! by The Instant-Series is easy to read and understand, and is well organized in relevant chapters. It is an interactive book, written in a friendly tone. It is also packed with everyday examples – managing children, the household and a job; handling deadlines at work - so everyone can relate to the topics. The exercises within the book are a great starting point to becoming more productive and efficient. I particularly enjoyed the chapter which states and demonstrates through concrete examples that productivity can be fun. I recommend this book to anyone who needs an instant boost of productivity either in their personal or professional life. Also, you can always go back to the book or just to the chapters or exercises you are interested in every time you get stuck in life.

“Instant Productivity: How to Be Productive to Get Things Done Easier and Faster Instantly” is a book geared towards helping you become more productive. It contains chapters that will help you understand how to become more productive by better utilizing the time and resources at your disposal, as well as making better use of the time you have. The book is written in an easy-to-follow manner, with clean language and simple explanations of the topics.

Chapters are nicely organized, describing why you would want to be more productive, what the benefits are of being more productive, how to do things more productively, how to do things more easily, how to do things more quickly, as well as helping you understand how to organize yourself, increase your input, and lead a more productive life.

The only real drawback to the book is the formatting of the book. The book does not provide a linked table of contents to the chapters, and chapters start right after the previous chapter ends (instead of starting on a new page). This isn’t a deal-breaker, though, and is not disruptive enough for me to take away more than 1 star from the book.

The benefits of this book greatly outweigh that drawback, though, because the tips provided in this book will help you become more productive and learn how to delegate your work when it’s appropriate to do so. You’ll come away from this book with a better understanding of what productivity is (and isn’t), and you will have a clear concept of how to increase your own productivity, making your life and work both easier and more comprehensive.

From the very start of the book, I was very skeptical of the "instant" productivity. I glanced at the table of contents and looked at all the titles and they didn't impress me at all. But I went ahead and read it anyways. I mean productivity seems and should be simplistic, right? How complicated can it get?

I must say I was quite pleasantly surprised by this book. It turned out way better than I expected. Everything is very well said and organized. All of the contents lead up to each other and are not randomly placed.

The book starts off explaining what productivity is people can relate to outside of a machinery and how we can be more productive now.

The best part about it is it breaks things down showing you different methods to make your work easier. Think of it like finding flaws and inefficiencies in your process of doing things, then showing you the how to restructure your process to work faster and better with the applications provided.

I really enjoyed how well written the book is. Everything is easy to read and not hard to understand. Overall, this book delivers what it said it does to be productive to get things done easier and faster. Gives you lots of information and very helpful.

This book was an eye opener. I am always skeptical of reading self-help books because they are long and usually repetitive with not much useful information. BUT this one was different. After reading it you'll realize how easy it is to increase your productivity and ultimately make your life better by making more time to do what you really want to do. As the book mentions, productivity is a personal decision and can easily be attained if you think outside of the box to get things done in a more effective way. The first step to achieving this is to get moving and read this book!

The book has a very easy to follow and read structure. Each chapter is easily tied to the previous one and short enough to keep the readers attention. All points are very straight forward and written in small chunks for easy comprehension. This is important because the reader who is reading this (like myself) doesn't want to spend time reading something that isn't going to help in the end.

The main formula in the book is productivity = participant + effort + time frame + outcome. It's easier to break your task into smaller parts based on these four factors and good examples are provided to build on this point. What I liked most is the fact that the author tries to get the reader to aim to make production of the tasks more fun. At least to me, the more fun something is the more it adds to your life and helps make you happy :) and in this case save time.

I ended up really enjoying this book and think it's a great way to introduce the self-help book skeptic to this type of subject. There's no fluff but only great facts and tactics to make your life more productive!
