Based upon his weekly Harvard Business Review column (one of the most popular columns on HBR.com, receiving hundreds of thousands of unique page views a month), 18 Minutes clearly shows how busy people can cut through all the daily clutter and distractions and find a way to focus on those key items that are truly the top priorities in our lives.
Bregman works from the premise that the best way to combat constant and distracting interruptions is to create productive distractions of one's own. Based upon a series of short bite-sized chapters, his approach allows us to safely navigate through the constant chatter of emails, text messages, phone calls, and endless meetings that prevent us from focusing our time on those things that are truly important to us.
Mixing first-person insights along with unique case studies, Bregman sprinkles his charming audiobook with pathways that help guide us - pathways that can get us on the right trail in 18 minutes or less.

if you're struggling to take your mountain of todos across the finish line. in a regular basis, 18 mins will help you get intentional about managing your time to accomplish what is most important and say no to the things that aren't.
Yes I would. This was a simple, logical, easy to follow approach to becoming more productive. I teach and coach productivity and recommend this book to all. Very clear and easy to follow.
I took a lot of notes and I am implementing the ideas in the book. Kind of a Lifehacker with research. The author is very credible and I trust that his ideas work.
This is a great audio book since the author does a really good job of providing real-world examples.
Overall a wonderful audio book to listen to. Very inspirational, uplifting & most importantly real-world. Most of the motivational books focus too much on theory and not even practical knowledge but not this book. Peter brings his experiences to light with such vivid details. Kudos!!!
Listening to this audio book, it was astounding how much I could relate to. It was like the author had read my mind and uncovered the hidden mental struggles and unanswered questions that have floated around in my mind, waiting for something to trigger an 'aha moment'. Well, listening to this book, I quickly realized I need this as an eBook, as well....the message is just too valuable not to thoroughly absorb visually and audibly to learn and take the action I know I need to make, yet didn't know why or how to move forward....Awesome book. Thank you for this.
Mostly obvious life lessons wrapped in cliche allegories. This book should be tossed into the $0.89 bin where it belong. It would be like paying $20 for a hot dog to a street vendor, ridiculous.
I love books that helps me grow.
This book is one of my favorites. He gets right to the point. Great system to figure out whats important to you and focus your time on those things because the truth is you do have time to do everything that is out there for you to do.
Maybe, if it received high reviews.
Sure. There are some interesting parts. The end was a bit boring and void of much value, but still worth it overall
Friendly, intelligent, light-hearted
I feel like I just waisted my money listening to this person. if their is a refund I will be glad to apply for it to get my money back. he is so boring and you don't get no benefit from his idea or writhing.

I've listened to it once and enjoyed the new concepts I learned and was not familiar with
I've grown tired of hearing the word
No probably not
Don't see that happening
