Overview

Paradigm present Arnold Bennett’s ‘How to Live on 24 Hours a Day’. Presented as a fantastic edition with a fully interactive table of contents.


How to Live on 24 Hours a Day, written by Arnold Bennett, is part of a larger work entitled How to Live. In this volume, he offers practical advice on how one might live (as opposed to just existing) within the confines of 24 hours a day. In the book, Bennett addressed the large and growing number of white-collar workers that had accumulated since the advent of the Industrial Revolution. In his view, these workers put in eight hours a day, 40 hours a week, at jobs they did not enjoy, and at worst hated. They worked to make a living, but their daily existence consisted of waking up, getting ready for work, working as little as possible during the work day, going home, unwinding, going to sleep, and repeating the process the next day. In short, he didn't believe they were really living.


Bennett addressed this problem by urging these "salary men" to seize their extra time, and make the most of it to improve them. Extra time could be found at the beginning of the day, by waking up early, and on the ride to work, on the way home from work, in the evening hours, and especially during the weekends. During this time, he prescribed improvement measures such as reading great literature, taking an interest in the arts, reflecting on life, and learning self-discipline.


Bennett wrote that time is the most precious of commodities. He said that many books have been written on how to live on a certain amount of money each day. And he added that the old adage "time is money" understates the matter, as time can often produce money, but money cannot produce more time. Time is extremely limited, and Bennett urged others to make the best of the time remaining in their lives.


This book has seen increased appeal in recent years due to the explosion of the self-improvement phenomenon, and the book has much relevance in today's world.

    Fresh Ideas on Time Management from a Classic

    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.

    An essay - free NOOK versions poorly done

    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.

    Enjoyable and insightful

    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.
