There is a lot of good advice in this book. For someone who is new at their career or needs to be motivated to improve their game, I would certainly recommend it.

It is, however, scattershot and unfocused. Tracy touches on everything from how to plan your sales trips to what you should put in your briefcase when you travel on an airplane.

It's also really dated. "Go to the store and buy a rolodex" might have been good advice 20 years ago.

Overall, I'm glad I read it, but it leaves a lot to be desi

A very useful book on how to regain lost time for productivity every day, from identifying and avoiding timewasters, to improving efficiency to creating a schedule and sticking to it. Plan your work and then work your plan is the way to go, so you spend most of your time on the activities that will get you when you want to go. This book includes tips of goal setting, thorough planning and execution. It's worth spending a few hours reading.

Glad I didn't judge by the cover. This book has already proven to be a tremendous resource for myself & others I've shared it with. Time = your life. Brian Tracy provides questions to help you clarify: who you are, what your talents are and therefore how you might want to spend your most previous resource, time. Everyday I read this there were ideas & techniques I began using immediately. ...more

And amalgamation of every time management book that you've ever read with a twist on the power of the law of attraction. Took me a little bit to get through it. Some sound advice, but again probably nothing that you don't already know. I will say it was motivating and reminded me to incorporate planning long-term personal goals into my daily routine.

It has good tips and a unique way of looking at things. Some of the concepts are pretty entertaining in the way they are presented. Especially because he is not trying to present them in a humorous way.

Good principles, but nothing I've never heard honestly. Feels like a self help book with some action steps. Works better as a reference guide than a "book" per se.

If you don't have enough time here Brian Tracy offers some clear approach in simple steps. Follow it.

Clear and simple strategies to managing time and getting more done in your day. One of my must reads on this topic.

Great suggestions, much easier to digest in audio book format
It's a very good book, it changes your life if you put what is said in action

This is a time management book everyone should read. Our time is our life and it should be spent as carefully and efficiently possible.

Great book, I went back a second time to take notes. Many of it seems like common sense but when you apply some of the practical strategies they really are effective (most of it relies on writing things down). I like his writing style, it's very positive and motivating. Definitely perked up morale...Highly recommended for people that need to get things done.

A must read if you desperately need to learn how to manage your time efficiently. If you’re already decent at managing time you’ll find in this book that there are principles you’ve already been practicing unconsciously. Nevertheless, go through it all if you strive for excellence. Brian will surely help you improve on time management.

Good audio book for learning how to prioritize and manage your time, there's lots of content and information through the book that would be best to read it a couple of times to to fully digest the information.

Getting around to it.

If you like simple ideas that are easy to implement, be sure to get this book. One idea I took away was the timber getting around to it disks. I won’t spoil it, so buy the book and implement it.

Brian, thank you.

Me, to author: If your book is about time (how to handle it better), why is it 8 cd's long and just full of recycled material from your other books...?
*only made it into ch.2 , because that seems like it should be enough space to get your point across
Carter Hemphill
This book is full of great advice on how to be more productive at work. Each chapter contains a lot of advice worth going back to again. The book is geared especially towards those in the sales, but I still found a lot of useful information that is relevant for any workplace environment.

Only read half of the book, because - oh irony - I didn't find the time to finish it before the hand-in deadline of the local library.

Picked up some good practical time management tools though such as the ABCD method.

I read the first two chapters. It is just one more self-help books: set the goal, have a plan, check progress, etc.
