• We have now completed publishing our trilogy of ‘Productivity’ books:
    • ‘Productivity Knowhow’ Revisited – the basic knowhow all managers need if they want to make big productivity improvements – first published as ‘Productivity Knowhow’ in 2016, then revised and shortened in 2022
    • ‘Adventuring out to Sea’ – published in 2021 – an aide-memoire for busy businessmen who also like to sail but can do so for only a few days a year – hence, they forget much in between  – and there’s much read-across between being a good manager and being a good skipper
    • Productivity Quotes – published in 2019 – a selection of over 1,000 quotes from the ‘great and good’, most related to productivity matters – some amusing, some controversial


  • We’re also happy to list other business books which we consider add something useful to the body of knowledge about productivity improvement


  • Hence, we will be very happy to publicise your book on this website, for free, as long as it ‘passes muster’
