Format: Hardcover
Those of us who are retired and not living with others are a perfect market for this book. Without jobs or family members making demands on us, with most of our time our own, we can fall into habits that work against us: watching TV at all hours of the day and night, sleeping erratically and at all hours, napping during the day even when we're not tired.
This book provides us with both the rationale and the know-how for setting up routines that can transform our lives. After decades of productivity, I found myself rattling around the house wondering,"What am I DOING with my life?". With nothing pressing, my "well-earned rest" turned into an unfocused waste of time and an uncomfortable feeling that I was wasting my life. My mood started to sink, as did my energy.
This book has galvanized me to action. I started with bedtime and arising routines, which quickly led to an exercise routine, then regularly scheduled meals. My energy has returned - I feel like the "old me"! - and my time is now filled with pleasurable and stimulating activities. This book has stopped me from growing old, and I am extremely grateful.

Most reviewers will be men as opposed to Stephen Covey's 7 Habits where many women and child care providers can relate better. I have worked inside large companies and small ones with extensive sales training. I see this as a book for people who can pick up company training programs, grasp opportunities and run with them on their own. But, what about the rest of us who have been out of the business loop? I am now a mom who stays at home with my children by choice and would love to have nonprofessional mumbo jumbo for energy applications. Out of the work force for several years and a different path chosen makes
this book not such a good read for moms (who stay home or who work outside) and families. It leaves out anyone who has not
been chosen as one of the worthy people to embrace "company
political training." The authors and the publisher have left millions out - so don't say it's for everyone. It's not. For moms and anyone in the family/kid role who are in great need of much "energy" to prevent Mommy Melt Down or even Life Melt Down, my first love is still Stephen Covey, 7 Habits, and Jodie Lynn's, Mommy-CEO (Constantly Evaluating Others) 5 Golden Rules. Here are two books almost everyone can understand and get on with positive energy and organization while keeping sanity. Another favorite specifically for parents would be Best Friends Worst Enemies, by Michael Thompson. The world would benefit in personal and family relationships, and embrace life building skills in the coorporate world too, from reading these books.

Format: Paperback
Much of the information in this book can be found in other books on time management and personal productivity. Readers will need to decide whether to revile the authors for repeating so much conventional wisdom or appreciate their efforts to gather it together in one place. Information about proper sleep and nutrition habits, for example, remains useful even when it is not new.

The unique value of this book goes beyond its organization of personal energy into physical, emotional, mental and physical energy. We have read most of these concepts before in the sales motivation literature. The book's practical value is in its advice about how to incorporate regular energy renewal routines into your life. Steven Covey (The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) calls this "sharpening the saw." These authors expand on the concept with a full range of suggestions and examples.

The authors' studies of professional athletes have taught them two principles. One is that high performers work hard to stretch their limits and increase their capacity over the long term. This is not news. The second--and more interesting--lesson is that top athletes build replenishment into both their training and performance routines. In one example they describe a tennis player who uses breathing exercises to lower his heart rate between each set. They authors argue that this kind of renewal in the middle of the game is essential to high performance. And that it generalizes from athletes to the rest of us.

I'm sufficiently convinced of the value of renewal rituals that I have used the book's advice to design two of my own.

A refreshing look at engagement and high performance. Really appreciate the concise summaries at the end of each chapter and the personal development "tools" in the appendix. Well worth the money and time.

Format: Hardcover
There are two books I've read in the past twenty years that I believe reset the agenda for personal development. The first was Seven Habits of Highly Effective People which took us out of quick fix and into the root source of effectiveness which is character. The second is this book. Loehr and Schwartz have focused my attention on the root source of results in life: energy. They engagingly, clearly and helpfully articulate the fallacy of focusing on time management when the true strength of soul and capacity to create results in life is not how much time we have (a fixed quantity you can do nothing about) but the energy you develop and make choices to apply. I'm grateful to have found this book early rather than waiting for its powerful message to make a similar difference in my life to the other of these two seminal books.
