    "Great theories, very little practical how-to tips"

    Aside from plugging infusionsoft, very few examples of actual ways to multiply your time, took very academic approach and only discussed theories. They're good theories, but book probably could have been shorter without some of the fluff. A worthy read if you follow it with Less Doing More Living, and Four Hour Work Week for practical application tips

    "Reviews I don't agree with..."

    I heard Rory Vaden give a TED talk. I liked it and so I looked for a book and found this one. Two reviews stood out that almost made me NOT buy it. One said that it was some sort of back door Christian book. Now, having read it, I disagree. It's Christian in the same way a book might be Hindu if written by a Hindu. I was not turned off by scattered references to faith or occasional biblical coloration. Rory is Christian and he doesn't hide it. It's part of his world view. It doesn't offend me. Second, another review said the book was lacking in practical ways to multiply time. I agree that the book isn't a set of codes and schedules that suddenly transform you by modifying your behavior. Rather it is a way of thinking differently about how you approach the tasks and schedules you already have. I really like the book and profited from it. If your role is one of a primary decision maker then you will benefit more than if you are someone in subordinate, less flexible roles where you aren't free to think for yourself. Nevertheless I think anyone would benefit from listening to this book.

    "Great insight but lacks detail"

    I really enjoyed the book. However he never actually describes how the framework would look. Eg should I use a list to manage the tasks as they go through the focus funnel and back again?

    Also the Christian tangents are a bit unnecessary and annoying.

    "Religious Book"

    I am the same religion but feel there should be a disclaimer when an author is publishing a religious book. I don't like being surprised.

    "Great how to strategies!"

    Perfect timing. Both the strategic and emotional processes. We can be so tough on ourselves-these permissions offer great insight. Thanks Rory, you did it again!

    "Dated, Preachy, and for those born to wealth"

    A few good points, but the author, who says he bought his first rental house at age 13, was obviously born into wealth. When he mentions putting money into a 10% savings account, I could only wonder when he last had such an account. Apparently it was a long time ago. Or perhaps the accountant he pays hasn't kept him informed. I found him telling me what and how a farmer thinks offensive. I doubt he'd allow himself anywhere near on of those.

    If you already have tons of money and are obsessed with making more and more and more, this book might give you a few tips. If you are an average working person, the advice is impractical and the book not worth the precious few moments you have.

    "Paying dividends from day one!"

    Change the way I looked it time. So much better then some of the other methodologies that simply try to get you to do more in less time. The biggest weakness of some of the other time management systems is that you have to be pretty good at making your own decision about what's important and in what order thing should be done. My struggle is always been how to decide what's most important. This book helps me filter through the massive list of possible tasks and sort out the ones with the most impact that need to be done now. Also some great new ideas on the value of time and the value of certain tasks relative to time and money, that will help shape my thinking in the future. Very enjoyable listen, will probably listen again soon.

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

    I hated every part of this book and would not recommend it to anybody unless you know nothing about money or time management.


    What was most disappointing about Rory Vaden’s story?

    I was disappointed because this book has great reviews, but in fact doesn't say anything new and is full of interruptions. Author is auto promoting himself, his company etc. repeating websites numerous of time. Take into consideration the length of this book itself half of it is advertisement and repeating information from previous paragraphs!


    Any additional comments?

    For me this book was just wasted time and money. Would not recommend it even if it was for free.

    "Redflag: advertising in narration"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you can really bear with advertisement contents in narration (and the narrator reiterates it in order to make you aware), then it would be ok for you.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rory Vaden again?

    No. It is a red flag for reiterating the advertisement content in a book that teaches people about time management.


    Which character – as performed by Rory Vaden – was your favorite?

    Nobody. The narrator just performed himself, a salesman of everywhere, including inside the book.


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

    Anger.

    "sales pitches"

    There seems to be too many sales pitches and too much time spent on the time value of money.
