I was looking for a little self help book that is not more than 6 hours. I found tons of them and they appeared to be so long, that even to think about listening to 13 hours of how to manage time or declutter or motivate myself sounded like such a big effort that it made more sense to better use that time to actually do the things I need to do, rather than listen an audio book about it, right?, so I found this little book. I am quite new to self help books but I think this works really well as an audiobook, also once in a while is good to have the writer be the narrator of their book, and in this case its a good choice. I don't know if the info here is new or old, it does not look like he discovered something magical or a new formula. But the way is organized works well, its small, good enough to listen several times or stop and come back to a task, and is not repetitive. And finally it comes with a downloadable worksheets that helps to see things in paper, which for me is good. I never heard of this author before, but when I got the audiobook I went to his website to get the download of the work tool and it looks ok. There is a lot of info to work with so I will listen again to use it, the price was ok too, not excessive (5 bucks). Overall it was nice and made sense, also, it kinda works for many subjects, like studying, organizing, etc. I also got "The Practicing mind" audio version, and although I have not finished it, it seems really nice too, but more focused into putting things into action, and "Time well spent" is more focused into how to prioritize and get organized to get things done. You just have to do the work. I just have two complaints: you have to go to the author's website to get the accompanying material, and he gives the name of the exact website in the middle of the speech, which means, you have to pause the book, write down the link and find it. Audible usually puts the links with the book, not for this one doe. http://theothersideofcomplexity.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Time-Well-Spent-Supplemental-Worksheets.pdfSo, since you need the book for the material make sense, I copied the link here for other people to get it easily. The other complaint is that he kinda promotes himself and his website, something like 3 times on the book, I personally do not like this trend, makes it look like a teaser not a proper book. But this is only my opinion. I hope this helps to decide if to get it or not. So many books are around about this kinda subject it gets difficult to decide. This one is good. Not excellent, but good and short, seems like the author actually knew how to spend his time well.
