Simply Brilliant 3e Summary

Simply Brilliant 3e: The competitive advantage of common sense by Fergus O'Connell

1. Many things in life are incredibly simple.

2. There are a lot of smart people in the world (you're probably one of them).

So why is it that so many truly daft things get done?

Simply Brilliant is the smart person's guide to the incredibly straightforward stuff that may have been overlooked in the search for a complex answer. With a whole new section on extreme time management, you'll be able to produce outstanding results without having to work all night.


Sometimes the smart need the simple to be truly brilliant.

"Just when we feel we can no longer cope with it all, someone writes a book that offers salvation ... Simply Brilliant is brilliantly simple - so much so that I may start coming to work again to get things done."
Financial Times

"For a change this guide tears down management as a complex science, reducing it to life saving basics. This book does a good job - it may just help to simplify your working life."

The Evening Standard

"Simply Brilliant could make a difference to huge numbers of managers O'Connell's ideas for creating a better working environment are as simple as he claims and will provide welcome relief for anyone who is struggling to come to terms with the latest fad from the Harvard Business School..."
The Sunday Times - Book of the Week

Simply Brilliant is packed with great advice and telling anecdotes. It's a must read for anyone who wants to simplify their life and get more done! And don't we all!

Warick White, Managing Director of Coca Cola Australia/ New Zealand

Fergus's ability to cut through the jargon and get to the heart of the matter is unparalleled. He has once again turned the complex into the simplex and in doing so making his hard won experience accessible to all.

He is Simply Brilliant!
