Audible Editor 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.

An entertaining look at time management

This book was exactly what I hoped it would be. The wisdom is solid, timeless, and presented in a way that anyone, from any walk of life, would gain something. The narrator captures the author's rather wry and humorous approach very well.
