Reviews - What do customers think about Margin (Revised)?

Margin - good but not what I was looking for  Dec 20, 2008
Well thought out analysis and discussion, easy to read. I was looking for something with more Biblical material in it so the book didn't suit my needs.
Cure for Overload  Nov 3, 2008
If you don't have time to read this book...nuff said...but maybe you should. In this wireless, marginless age, I've noticed that I'm often the only relic on the rental car bus without his nose buried in his Blackberry or iPhone. Not that I have this subject mastered---far from it. It's a daily discipline to build margin into my life.

So, tell me. How do you relate to Dr. Dick Swenson's eloquent description below of the difference between living a marginless life versus the real thing? He writes:

Marginless is fatigue. Margin is energy.
Marginless is red ink; margin is black ink.
Marginless is hurry; margin is calm.
Marginless is anxiety; margin is security.
Marginless is culture; margin is counterculture.
Marginless is the disease of the new millennium; margin is the cure.

It's likely that you---or several team members---live on the precipice of a marginless life, without adequate emotional energy, physical energy, time or finances. A life WITH margin honors God---the opposite does not. If you've never read this classic, or it's been a while since you've done a margin self-assessment, you'll deeply appreciate Swenson's practical and biblical look at a healthy life that is characterized by contentment, simplicity, balance, rest and authentic relationships.

He's very, very practical. The margin doctor suggests you deactivate your home answering machine, or record this message, "Please wait for the beep and hang up." I describe my really dumb workaholic former lifestyle in the "Team Bucket" chapter of my book, Mastering The Management Buckets: 20 Critical Competencies for Leading Your Business or Non-profit. Swenson's book has the cure for overload and is a must companion to mastering the buckets. It's a keeper and it deserves a place of honor in your organization's resource library.

Buying copies as gifts  Sep 1, 2008
This is an excellent book. The author does an amazing job of articulating the concept, need, and application of a life lived with margins. I am purchasing copies for my friends.
Read it!  Apr 21, 2008
I liked this book very much. Its written from Christian perspective but it applies to the lives of everyone. Margin is something that every Christian should read and any person who can take the good points from a book.
Margin  Apr 13, 2008
Dr. swenson diagnoses of the effects of technology and busy lifstyles that mark our culture today.His presciption for a better life through
margin in key areas of living was practical and very doable.
If our culture would respond to his advise, this would be a better world and certainly happier families and children.
ps I preferred the book to the tapes.
The voice was too low of energy to inspire change.
