  • This practical proven book shows you how to immediately take control of your life, clarify your goals and concentrate on the most valuable use of your time every minute

    Brian Tracy, author of Eat that Frog
  • Ms Emens' tips for working through admin knots have given me lots of ideas, especially for clearing the "murky admin" that has been on my list for too long . . . I'm also making another list - fun things to do with all the time I've saved

    Claer Barrett, Financial Times
  • Reading The Art of Life Admin is like sitting down with a friend who knows exactly how it feels to be drowning in your To Do list, and throws you a very welcome lifeline to help you to make your way out

    Brigid Schulte, author of the New York Times bestseller Overwhelmed
  • This book is a must-read for anyone who feels overwhelmed by admin at home

    Cal Newport, author of Digital Minimalism
  • Life admin is apparently invisible even to the authors of most time management books, which is what makes Emens's book so refreshing . . . solid advice

    Oliver Burkeman, Guardian magazine
  • Shift up, Marie Kondo . . . Elizabeth Emens is on to something with her analysis of the time-gobbling role that admin now plays in our days . . . When she describes it to others they tell her she is seeing into their marriages and minds . . . She has instant practical suggestions . . . Emens' book is a call to distinguish what we must do from what can be minimised . . . In our uncertain world at least we can deal with the small stuff
