Summary, etc.:
"Available for the first time in bookstores, this is the classic book on productivity and time management developed by Francesco Cirillo, the creator of the Pomodoro Technique, whose self-published book has been downloaded over 2 million times as a free download. Francesco Cirillo's The Pomodoro Technique is the world renowned system for improving productivity that has been in use the world over, and adapted by countless others, since 1999. Cirillo first developed his system for improving productivity while a university student in Italy in the early 1990s. By using a kitchen timer in the shape of a pomodoro (Italian for tomato), Cirillo was able to concentrate the amount of time he spent working on a project into 25 minute intervals, with short 5 minute breaks, to get more done. Each pomodoro, or 25 minute work interval, is performed without interruptions; by grouping 3 to 4 pomodoros in a row, users can vastly improve their productivity, enhance their focus, and better achieve their goals"-- Provided by publisher.
