Douglas Merrill, author of the new book Getting Organized in the Google Era, writes about his own struggle with dyslexia, and how that forced him to develop techniques for remembering information. RENEE MONTAGNE, host: Okay, so in this era of information overload, you're feeling stressed, forgetful, overwhelmed - that means your mind is perfectly normal. So says Douglas Merrill in his new book "Getting Organized in the Google Er. He's a former Google executive, and he writes that his own struggle with dyslexia forced him to develop techniques for remembering information.

Whether it's a faulty memory, a tendency to multitask, or difficulty managing our time, every one of us has limitations conspiring to keep us from being organized. But, as organizational guru and former Google CIO Douglas C. Merrill points out, it isn't our fault. Our brains simply aren't designed to deal with the pressures and competing demands on our attention in today's fast-paced, information-saturated, digital world. What's more, he says, many of the ways in which our society is structured are outdated, imposing additional chaos that makes us feel stressed, scattered, and disorganized.But it doesn't have to be this way. Luckily, we have a myriad of amazing new digital tools and technologies at our fingertips to help us manage the strains on our brains and on our lives; the trick is knowing when and how to use them. This is why Merrill, who helped spearhead Google's effort to "organize the world's information," offers a wealth of tips and strategies for how to use these new tools to become more organized, efficient, and successful than ever. But if you're looking for traditional, rigid, one-size-fits-all strategies for organization, this isn't the book for you. Instead, Merrill draws on his intimate knowledge of how the brain works to help us develop fresh, innovative, and flexible systems of organization tailored to our individual goals, constraints, and lifestyles.     From how to harness the amazing power of search, to how to get the most out of cloud computing, to techniques for filtering through the enormous avalanche of information that assaults us at every turn, to tips for minimizing distractions and better integrating work and life, Getting Organized in the Google Era is chock-full of practical, invaluable, and often counterintuitive advice for anyone who wants to be more organized and productive–and less stressed--in our 21st-century world.From the Hardcover edition.

GREAT read! Glad I bought this.

I liked this book.

There are lots of organizational tips and ideas included that can improve your life. Well, this book is not for the unorganized. This book is for those that already read David Allen's Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity or anything similar.

This book is written from a very personal view which I do not think is positive or negative. It gives you the viewpoint from a real person and you where the author stands and why he is doing what he does. Included in this book are also lots of excerpts from the author's favorite songs. At first I thought this was a bit strange, but towards the end of the book I started to like it.

I wished that this book would be more about organizing your life in the cloud. It is though more directed to the reader that does not use any or just a few cloud services to get deeper into it.

Overall, this is a good and helpful book. You get a few new ideas and some insights on how your brain works. But it is not mind blowing or revolutionary.

I first came across this as a sound recording in my local library. It had so much helpful information, I had to have my own copy. It's great for a not-so-organized one to help sort out information.

WwThis isn't ur typical oganizational book on how to file things. Its about rethinking HOW you file things. Biggest tip I'm still working on using search not putting things in different folders.
Great book.

Filled with personal anecdotes with few tips to garner from it, aside from using Gmail as a personal repository for information (a la Evernote). Highly recommended that you try other books first.

This review pertains to the audio copy of the book. Douglas Merrill should follow his own advice and have a professional book reader create the audio version. Merrill's fast, clipped speech makes for painful listening. Add to that all the music quotes. Both the quotes and the clipped speech detract from the content of the book. That said, the content was good enough that I will purchase a hard copy of the text.

The best part of the book for me was the discussion on work-life "integration" as opposed to "balance." I've been intergrating work and life for years and have wondered what "balanced" would mean. Turns out the balance doesn't exist for me.

I love how easy of a read this was and the no one size fits a approach to organization. It is written from an approachable ace and felt like. A friend giving you some great advice. I plan on recommending in to co-workers, friends, my boss and my husband.
I bought this book, as it was paper bound and I had ordered the hardcopy, after I listened to the ebook at least 4 times. I wanted hard copy and paper, to carry with me on travel to review his organization points and how I was trying several of his instructions and suggestions.
