Author Arnold Bennett lived a busy life. He was a prolific English writer who moved to France and became a high-ranking bureaucrat. He also dabbled in film and opera, and had a rich personal life. How to Live on 24 Hours a Day is chock full of Bennett’s tried-and-true advice. Bennett urges his audience to live authentic and ambitious lives. For Bennett, time is the great equalizing currency: No one can choose their allotment, or accrue additional time. So you must spend what you have wisely. Narrator Eric Brooks has an august British accent, and he expounds with the authority Bennett himself would have employed. Brooks methodically explains Bennett’s techniques for increasing concentration and self-awareness, both key tools to increase productivity and time efficiency.
This classic personal time-management book, originally published in 1908, has inspired generations of men and women to live deliberate lives. Not just another collection of timesaving tips, this book is more of a challenge to leave behind mundane everyday concerns, focus on pursuing one's true desires, and live the fullest possible life. Reflection, concentration, and study techniques make it easier to accomplish more truly rewarding undertakings than anyone ever dreamed possible.

Yes. I liked the tone and the fact that it is a century old makes for interesting companrisons to life today. It was a pleasant read.
We have to be at work for so many hours a week, but most people fritter away most of the remaining time. A little time each day should be set aside.
"The Best 1.5 hours of reading (listening) Ever!"
After 105 years in print I am amazed that it took me so long to find this book. It surpasses all of the time management books ever written. Move over Covey, Franklin and Carnegie this man is a genius. I loved the old literary "Jeeves" style of writing but it may put some people off. However, I encourage you to persist and focus on the core principles that Bennett is trying to teach. If you are fed up with having too much busyness in your life and you want to enjoy "living" on 24 hours a day instead of existing then I invite you to apply these principles into your life without delay.
