I know that a lot of reviewers said that this book contains nothing new, but I think the most important part of the book is explaining the difference between nutritional and exercise science and the latest fad meant to sell diet/weight loss books. This is not a book that will tell you what to do for the next 12 weeks to slim down so you can go back to the way you currently take care of your body at week 13. It's about making permanent changes in your life. For me, I would agree that there was no new information but I am a very active person who adheres to a very nutritional diet. For a lot of people that I know who suffer from confusion due to the newest diet craze or marketing buzzwords I think this is an excellent book. I am definately going to recommend it the next time someone asks me a question about diet, nutrition or exercise.
I would recommend "Getting Things Done" by David Allen instead. While the author of "Find More Time" does give some helpful tips, she really doesn't say it better or offer more information than Allen. Reading Allen's book you will also save yourself from wading through unnecessary and irrelevant angry rants about people you don't know. If you really care that she thinks her "friend" is a disgusting slob for not throwing away stained dish clothes or that her brother is the devil for not wanting to spend his free time with her kids that she herself complains about throughout the entire text, then this one may be for you afterall.
I haven't gotten very far in the book yet, and I know this sounds petty, but the speech impediment of the reader makes the book difficult to listen to. I find myself stuck on the mispronounced words and no longer listening to what has been said since I heard the problem word. Then I have to rewind and try to ignore it. A personal issue, I know, but I'm mentioning it because others might have the same issue. For instance the word "picture" is pronounced by the narrator as "pitcher"; "personal" is pronounced "pershonal"; "subtle" is pronounced "subble"; "prestige" is prounounced "presteech". I'm hoping after a few hours of listening I'll start to be able to tune it out.
