Useful advice presented in an entertaining manner is what I look for in a self-help book. This little classic achieves it. The author, best known as a novelist (The Old Wives' Tale), sets out principles for making better use of time and backs them up with specific suggestions. Bennett's starting point is the idea that each of us has the same amount of time available, 24 hours a day, no more and no less. 'We shall never have any more time. We have, and we have always had, all the time there is,' says Bennett. The typical reader he is addressing is a man, an office worker in London (and someone who evidently has no domestic responsibilities other than walking the dog), but the time-wasters Bennett identifies and the remedies he suggests are applicable to most of us today. Bennett uses humor freely to encourage the reader to step out of time-wasting routines and find time to be 'genuinely alive.' I recommend the book highly.

This book was scanned, OCR'd & thrown out into the world with minimal editing. It is barely readable. Save your time and get the always free version on Project Gutenberg.

16October2011 - The other well-known E-Reader corporation is currently providing a free version that has no distractions such as TWENTY-POUR HOURS A DAT in the middle of a page, the word ART rendered as A~T, and so on. I recommend using the other provider's free application for any computer if you want to read this *essay* for free. I own a NOOK and prefer the NOOK free applications for any computer - but in this case, I'm not willing to pay even $0.99 for a short essay that I can get free. Dear Barnes & Noble, if you object to this recommendation, then please clean up your act; I'm sure you can get the Tony Adams version of this essay just as the other corporation did.

Interesting perspective. Quite a great read.

The writting is whitty and well done. I enjoyed reading it for the sole sake of reading. The recommendations are specific enough to get you started but vague enough to fit any person or lifestyle with a little tweaking. I recommend it for anyone NOT looking for the cookie cutter "8 simple steps" instruction manual on how to fix your life.
