Including how-to's and case studies, Crocker discusses how to carve out your work space and meeting space, how to deal with communication technologies, and of course, how to set and maintain boundaries for a healthy and happy work and home life -- and so much more.

What about painful or deeply personal elements of your personal or professional legacy? In life, you have the opportunity to make choices about your digital legacy. If you don’t, you risk your legacy being misinterpreted, lost, or simply becoming digital litter. It’s time for a digital legacy plan.
