Editorial Reviews

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.

Well written, well read.

Would you listen to How to Live on 24 Hours a Day again? Why?

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.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

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.

Excellent wisdom

Although the narration sometimes feels more like a comic novel, it actually suits the content of this book very well. The author uses a gently teasing tone as he delivers some rather serious and challenging advice on how to make better use of one's time. I loved it, and will certainly listen to it again!
