    "Excellent time management plan!"

    This is just the plan that I need to accomplish the ongoing projects that I am involved in. It is very easy to get sidetracked in your day and not get important work completed on time. This time management plan is to the point and practical. Thank you Ric Thompson.

    "Total Waste of 60 minutes!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone with the intellectual capacity of a moderately intelligent fifth grader, and absolutely no clue about how to find the time to make his bed at least once a week.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ric Thompson again?

    I doubt it.

    The good news? I listened this at 2x speed while I made washed lunch dishes, started dinner and cleaned a mess my oldest left in the workshop. As such, the only part of that 30 minute period of my life was WASTED was that I was listening to this puerile attempt to supply efficiency tips.


    What three words best describe Daniel Penz’s performance?

    Better than content.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Profound disappointment. I've consumed many books on habits, efficiency, etc. I thought this one hour long "unabridged" book might be short enough that my teens (good, but not off the charts students who, like many teens, have some trouble self-regulating and getting things done) might listen to because of its length and maybe pick up 2-3 helpful pointers.

    HARDLY.

    The book was vague, and offered no meaningful tips. For example, "close your door and tell your family you will be busy for 10 minutes," or "Careful to ignore your phone during that ten minutes [of theoretically awesome] productivity," or "Don't leave your 'time suck' internet applications open. You could be distracted for a long time by a social media website or interesting blogs."

    Maybe the most absurd is the concept of rewarding yourself for successfully accomplishing a difficult 10 minute task by "Reading a book for 10 minutes," or by "watching 10 minutes of a favorite television show . . . but pause it after 10 minutes" or "Going to buy your favorite latte [assuming you could get there and back in 10 minutes]."

    Is this guy for real?


    Any additional comments?

    I've been an Audible member for 3+ years, and go through 2-4 books per month. There are the periodic clunkers (Kudos, Audible for letting us return two every six months), but this is the absolute WORST I've ever downloaded.

    Funniest part of it . . . the book begins with a disclaimer, a first in my experience that it is not a substitute for consulting with accountant, lawyer, etc. Trust me, there was NOTHING in here that came within 1,000 miles of legal or financial advice.

    WHAT. A. JOKE.

    "Great info Snappy style"
    Would you listen to 10 Minute Time Management again? Why?

    I listen to 10 min Time Management while I'm working. Daniel's voice is motivating and the writing style is entertaining and fun.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Daniel's voice breathes life into the narrative.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. It's short and to the point.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the writer and the narrator.
