Linenberger's new TWC for Outlook
Michael Linenberger wrote a couple of highly-regarded books which I first became aware of from posts on these forums. His first book on how to use the Tablet PC most effectively as a productivity tool brought him considerable acclaim. This was followed by "Total Workday Control Using Microsoft Outlook", which I purchased after reading favorable comments about it here by the late Marc Orchant. Once I really delved into it, I found his prescriptions to be quite logical and helpful but I drifted away from much of his approach when I migrated to Outlook 2007 and added Avidian Prophet to provide CRM capability.
Now, Linenberger has a new 2nd edition of TWC for Outlook; published just two weeks ago. I've been reading it for a couple of days now and am liking it a lot. It covers all of the most recent Outlook versions, with most of the screen shots from Outlook 2007. His thinking has progressed quite a bit since the first edition.
Some will no doubt claim that TWC is inconsistent with GTD. But since my own definition of GTD may be a little looser and more encompassing, I find GTD and TWC to be perfectly compatible; even symbiotic. And for those of us for whom Outlook is the fulcrum of a trusted system, Linenberger shows us how to make it a far more powerful yet relatively frictionless tool. I highly recommend it.
