Basically, Time and Chaos 6.0 is a personal assistant for time management. It manages contacts, appointments, tasks, and business documents with ease. Although manning the controls of this program takes a little time to learn, once you get familiar with where everything is located this program can help you take control of your time-management. The integration with other programs is a big plus. Originally, I was a little concerned with the price, however finding out that Time and Chaos comes with TWO years of upgrade protection for all upgrades that are released is a major plus. I have to admit, that I was quite impressed with the appointment book and the various options that you have with the scheduling of appointments and the ability to link appointments not only to contacts that you have in your contacts manager, but also a drag-n-drop feature for business documents that might be related to those important meetings or conference calls.

·         Various printing options and capabilities that could be extremely useful in a business setting

·         And my favorite feature – ONE SCREEN FOR EVERYTHING – look up contact information without leaving your daily calendar or task lists
