A Cut-and-Paste Book

I don't enjoy this as much as Tracy's other works because it was very obviously cut-and-paste from aforesaid other works. It's like he took a few podcast series and spliced them together, without bothering to order them into an overarching narrative. It's always a challenge to keep the big picture in mind when listening to an audiobook, but when there isn't a coherent structure, it's harder to retain anything. Although I've listened to this book several times, I couldn't tell you one distinctive thing I remember about it that wasn't in his other books. The lack of structure makes the resulting read not very actionable.

Repetitive, self-serving and lacking references.

What disappointed you about Time Management Made Simple?

I saw it was over 10 hours long and thought it would be very complete. It was not. It is very repetitive. About one hour before the end, Brian even says : "don't worry about the material being repetitive, it's good to hear good ideas several times". When I want to listen to good ideas several times, I expect to listen to the audiobook again, not hear it time and time and again in the same program. I suspect the real reason is that this is a loosely related collection that was put together to inflate the playing time.

For those familiar with Myer-Briggs Type Indicator, he is a super judger, and in his mind that is the way to be. Make all decisions now, throw away everything, when in doubt throw it out, and so on.

Besides, Brian is very self-serving. It sounds like he's making a shameless commercial time and time again. For instance, something that goes on for several minutes is summarized as: "An audio program is equivalent to reading 35 books. You should always listen to audio programs in your car. I produce many audioprograms. With no exception, everyone who listens to my programs does a LO better one year later".

Lastly, he makes all these claims: "scientists have discovered so and so". Which scientists, where was it published, where can I check it out?


What could Brian Tracy have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He could have summarized his points, be less self-promoting, offer names for his stories, be less patronizing.


Any additional comments?

There are several better books, succinct and to the point. "Getting it done" is a very good one. "First things first", although not my favorite, is by far better than this one.
