'In Bennetts' 'How to live on 24 hours a day' he lays down the philosophical argument that the majority of us simply do not use the time we are given to best advantage. Given that most of us spend eight hours daily in work for an employer and some of us may even give that our best efforts and enjoy the work, it is the other 16 hours plus weekends (days off) that Bennett tackles here.

Take example the journey to work, travelling to the station, the time the train station blatantly wastes as you stand waiting for it's arrival, the trivial reading of the newspaper in the time allocated to arrive at your destination, and the same on the way home; Bennett has far better uses for your time than to squander it away reading the daily papers.

Reviews from Amazon:

I was absolutely delighted within minutes of starting. The writing style is old-fashioned, with anecdotes reflecting life at the start of the last century. However, it is incredibly accessible and the examples are easy to understand and just as relevant today. Bennett writes in a humorous style, which while may not be to everyone's taste, certainly made me smile.

The essence of the book is that the average person always feels short of time. Bennett's basic premise is that you might work for 8 hours a day, and sleep for 8 hours a day, but the rest of the time is not used productively. He dissects a typical day and gives some really thought provoking ways to think about, reclaim and then spend this time.

Given the number of people who spend their evenings slumped in front of the TV, zoning out, it seems to be there are no shortage of people who would benefit from this book, but alas I suspect they are also the least likely to read it.

It's a short book, and a quick reader will get through it in an hour, although as Bennett tells us in the book, the real benefits will come from reflecting on its content.

To be honest - while it's free, why not give it a try!
