The Experts' Guide to Doing Things Faster: 100 Ways to Make Life More Efficient. It took me awhile to appreciate this book, a collection of advice on how to do things well by experts in the subject areas.

The Experts' Guide to Doing Things Faster: 100 Ways to Make Life More Efficient. The Experts' Guide to Life at Home. Over time and several passes through this book, I realized this is material to promote an approach to life. The idea is to focus on what we're doing while we're doing it, and to understand that every little thing can be done better and more purposefully. The author's approach reminded me of "mindfulness," a practice that to which I recently became acquainted.

The book itself covers 100 things that the author feels people should know how to do. I can agree with this sort of ideal; after all, specialization is for insects. I guess the biggest issue the author had was choosing 100 skills out of a multitude of possibilities. This is just as well since I doubt a book could give you all the intricacies of running a Dairy Farm or something. It also seems to be aimed at women in particular. I mean, I'm not going to disparage you for being a man and wanting to know how to apply lipstick, but that isn't the sort of information that would grab my attention. Though thinking back, that isn't really something I can say.

Presumably, everyone already knows how to breathe and make a bed. Clearly, there's another point to this book other than to teach you how-to. You will laugh if you enjoy the absurd. You will be puzzled and disappointed if you take things literally.

It took me awhile to appreciate this book, a collection of advice on how to do things well by experts in the subject areas. Over time and several passes through this book, I realized this is material to promote an approach to life. The idea is to focus on what we're doing while we're doing it, and to understand that every little thing can be done better and more purposefully.

The author's approach reminded me of "mindfulness," a practice that to which I recently became acquainted. In order to develop a calm awareness of one's body feelings and consciousness, it is useful to practice certain exercises such as awareness of our thoughts while we are doing all sorts of tasks. The subject matter experts featured in this book appear to have done that at least with respect to their areas of expertise.

I learned from this book even though it didn't come easily or quickly. For example, an expert on hair and hair products explained how to shampoo one's hair. One should use only a little shampoo, mix it around in one's hands and only then apply it to the hair. One should not work the shampoo too hard into one's hair or especially the scalp, and it's good to quickly rinse it out. Another example is shaking hands when greeting somebody. The idea of a handshake and what it entails is connected to exactly what happens in an optimal handshake. Other subject areas are more general, such as how to negotiate a deal. There's no expectation of being perfect, just to strive for something better and to concentrate on what we're doing with purposefulness.

The Expert's Guide to 100 Things Everyone Should Know How to Do is divided into the following parts: Morning Life; Work Life; Home Life; Weekend Life and The Big Life (everything else). Most of these things are routine. Most of us have done most of these things. But probably we haven't done any of them to the level of the experts that provided the advice. It makes sense to listen to experts explain how to do the basic things in which their success has earned them high status.

I'll use a lot of advice in this book but not all. For example, I won't try to perfect the art of making a great Martini. The point is that everything is done somewhere by somebody at a world class level, and we can achieve a higher level of attention to what we're actually doing by putting to practice methods outlined in this book.

There are things in this book that I never would have thought to think about. I had no idea that I was doing so many things wrong until I read this. I bought this as a gift for my brother in law. He hasn't spoken to me since (probably because he's having such a wonderful time reading this book and not because I'm not-so-subtly telling him he's a noob).

Most people don't think on their own today instead rely on the internet or worse...they survive on gossip, hearsay or what friends believe! This may be a collection of expert's advice but it's much more than that...needed bits of necessary advice on how to live, function and be successful as an individual. Try reading this book and see how many things you already know, need to know and didn't realize were important. A great little handbook for life!

Fun book for everyone! Great information! To much to take in all at once.

some of this things you need to know are pretty trivial, but I guess you need to know them. It was an interesting read.

I have not yet finished this book, but so far I'm enjoying this book a lot.
Samantha Ettus has done readers a service in providing us with her light-hearted, concise and extremely practical guide to ordinary things we should know how to do. You'll enjoy leafing through it, and will be both surprised and enriched as you learn from experts---you may even find that there is a much easier, more efficient way to do something other than the way you have always employed!

With the holidays approaching, I'd recommend this book as an excellent, all-purpose gift for anyone on your list. (Granted, it doesn't tell you how to make appealing, tasty fruitcake, but maybe she's saving that for another volume!)

Tie that tie for a formal gathering? Wash your hands in the best way to avoid coming down with the flu? Kiss your date? It's all here.

(An old proverb states that a woman should do three things in her life: Plant a tree, write a poem, and bear a son. Speaking as someone who has accomplished these, I'd say: In her next book, Ettus can include directions on how to plant a tree. For writing poems, though, you are on own creatively....and for bearing a son, well, nature will take charge once you have instigated the process.) For many of those other matters where proper technique may have eluded you, this is the book to read!

Five stars.
