Just before CEO and consultant Stuart Levine appeared on the Today Show to promote his bestselling book The Six Fundamentals of Success, cohost Matt Lauer said to him, "You know what really drives me nuts? When people come into my office for a five-minute conversation and an hour later, they're still there! Why can't they cut to the chase?"
Lauer's question echoed the concerns Levine has heard from business people and top executives at every level: How can I get more done? How can I stay focused? How can I condense my workday so that I can become more successful and yet spend more time with my family?
Levine's answer? By cutting to the chase. The people who thrive at work are the ones who make best use of their limited time and energy. They approach each task with clarity and purpose. They prioritize. They don't allow others to waste their time. In Cut To The Chase, Levine has distilled the expertise of hundreds of CEOs, managers, and professionals into 100 concise, invaluable lessons about how to get to the point, stay on track, and be more successful in everything you do.
In an age where we spend more hours at work than ever before, Cut To The Chase is the indispensable guide to making the most of your time so that you can lead a happier, more balanced life.

"This potpourri of ideas for getting more done in less time is organized into no less than 100 principles. While the wisdom is hard to argue with, a challenge for many listeners will be to pick out the ideas most meaningful to them. The material raises the question of how many ideas one should expect to take away from a lesson of this length, and how many can be influential--memorable and potent enough to make a difference in one's operating style. Alan Sklar's voice is always good to hear. Some listeners will want him to speak more quickly, but after five minutes or so, what becomes prominent is the satisfying flow of ideas we have come to expect from this experienced narrator. T.W.
