Here's the publisher description of this book:
If someone stole your wallet, you'd notice it. So why don't people notice when they are robbed of something much more valuable than their wallet―time?

Today's workers are drowning: nonstop requests for time, days filled to the brim with meetings, and endless nights spent heroically fixing the latest problems. This churn and burn is creating a workforce constantly on the edge of burnout.

In this timely book, IT time management expert Dominica DeGrandis reveals the real crime of the century―time theft, one of the most costly factors impacting enterprises in their day-to-day operations.
Come join us for some pizza and discussion!
