This book covers the subject of creativity and lateral thinking, something which often seems to be largely disregarded nowadays. Many office workers are actively discouraged from any form of creativity, yet innovation is central to the development of our economies.

Some useful management techniques which are otherwise confused by so-called ‘business consultants’ are put into simple words here. The reader does not need to pay someone a large pile of money for consultancy whilst reading the book. Just a kitchen timer and a piece of paper and a pencil is all you require. If you would like to get hold of the official Pomodoro kit, you can buy it online; as well as the pencil and paper, you get a T-shirt. Pomodoro Technique Illustrated helps you to focus on the job in hand using a partially formalised technique or method. If you are one of those people who finds that software development revolves around IRC chat or Twitter or mailing lists and you find that most of the day just flashes by as you type away on your keyboard, this book might be useful for you.
