I kindly disagree with jenmyers. I am a google products user, a former Silicon Valley CEO and perhaps agree with some that I have ADHD whereas Merrill is openly admitting to dyslexia.

His simple suggestons may be for me the best book on organization I have read, especially as they relate to google.

Thanks to VPL for letting us help each other this way.

And no, I don't have google shares.

If you already use google products, chances are there will be little useful information in this book for you.

Getting organized in the digital era is challenging; however, in this book Merrill provides the reader with some easy ways to battle the digital chaos. Merrill, once Chief Information Officer for Google, has plenty of tips and tricks for Google products, as well as, guiding us through efficiency in searching. The appendix gives an expert overview of the products and services the author uses in order to make his digital life more organized. This work will appeal to anyone who is in digital limbo or has made a resolution to be more organized in their daily lives in general.
