Summary: Husband and wife are struggling with finding meaning and happiness in life. They stumble upon a series of mysterious notes at the library which are presented as a map for uncovering the “Ultimate Investment.” Everyone gets the same amount of this investment daily, and the quality of your life depends greatly on how you apply it. If you guessed that the ultimate investment is “time,” you’re right.

The problem is that even though the moral of the book is obvious by page 10, the book rambles on for another 90 pages, using deliberately clueless characters to illustrate its point. Furthermore, the message is not even that deep. It’s not about how to use your time well, or how to figure out how to use your time well — it’s merely about time being an important resource that everyone has access to. Duh.
