Brian Tracy is a credible author, he does a great job in persuading the reader to take time management into consideration. This book is straight forward and very simple, just like time management. If your struggling to get things done, procrastinating, or just have no time I highly recommend you buy this book.

I would give it 7.5 out of 10. In Time Power, Brian repeats same or similar ideas many times in different chapters. One new chapter is supposed to bring in a new idea not explained before, and not necessarily repeat previous chapters' ideas.
For example, the following sentences are repeated plenty of times in the book, in several different chapters:
- What's the best use of my time right now?
- What can I, and only I do, that if done well will make a real difference?
- Why am I on the payroll?
In addition, when Brian explains about the same topic in a new chapter, he does it in a way so that as if the topic has not been explained before in a previous chapter; he treats the already explained topic as a new, fresh idea.
Another drawback, Brian explains minor ideas, everyday-experiences or general techniques that I believe that everyone already knows too often. If this is not done, along with not repeating the same ideas in different chapters as mentioned above, the book's size can be reduced by 100 pages!
Well, actually I'm a big fan of Brian Tracy. I read his articles and newsletters everyday. But it is obvious to me that reading his newsletters could be more interesting and not boring since the newsletters are not prolix and they contain the essence of ideas Brian wants to convey.
I just finished reading the book this afternoon, and now I've got a 4-page summary (I wrote this during reading the book) containing important points I have not learned before, that would be very useful in developing my skill in time management and helping me do my jobs in new, improved ways.
So the conclusion, In general, I would recommend Brian's Time Power for you. If you're new in time management, this book would be very useful - even a mandatory. If you already mastered time management at somewhat high degree, I would still recommend Time Power for your nice reference.

I found this book to be very poor in quality and substance.
It is simply a list of the same old tired techniques.
But now he also tells you to get to work and hour earlier, work though lunch, and stay an hour later!!
Also, get up at 5am, and work until 8am!
So basically he is saying that good time management is working from 5am, until 7pm everyday!
There are other absurd contradictions like this in this book.
I would NOT not recommend this book to anyone who has any experience at all in self-management. Reading this book is a waste of time!

Since most people don't manage their time very well, this book will come in very handy. Tracy, an experienced time management guru, clearly explains the importance of time management and how to leverage your time to the maximum benefit.
Time management like any pursuit requires persistence, goal setting, and continual tracking to make sure that you focus on the #1 tasks to attain the most satisfying results.
The 300-page book is divided into a dozen chapters. The book is packed with useful information including:
· How to set clear goals and those that provide the most benefit
· Details on how to plan your day, week, month, year, and decade
· How to prioritize your work based on the end results expected
· How to calculate you hourly wage and how to delegate tasks to others who work at lower wages than you
· Watching out for distractions and procrastination and how to handle these time-wasters
· How to manage more than one critical task at a time
I particularly enjoyed the chapter on "Time Management for Sales People." Here, Tracy shows you how to double your sales using a simple three-step sales formula. He focuses on having clear sales goals that translate into a specific income level, how to calculate what you need to earn an hour to reach your goal, analyzing your current skills set, and focusing on prospecting, planning your calls geographically, eliminating time wasting activities and then finally closing the sale. This chapter alone can help an average salesperson achieve outstanding results without wasting valuable time focusing on non-productive tasks.
Overall, the author provides an easy-to-read no nonsense book on time management.

I did not read every page of this book (my time management) but I did spend enough time reviewing it to see that this book breaks no new ground. It is a re-hash of basic and commonly used management techniques. Also, the techniques are not appropriate for every person.
Having said that this gives a lot of excellent advice on organizing your time, planning, managing, and delegating. A lot of managing is "mental" and more time and though in the management process is needed - including managing yourself. I still like Reagan's book "Reagan on Leadership" by James Strock and " The Art of Winning" by Dennis Conner that now only costs $5. I put together a "listmania" list of business books and put those two on the list. Both of the people were very underestimated as managers, and their ideas overlap this book. How can you argue with those two?
In any case this is also an excellent book, and the value of this type of book is always greatly undervalued. Reading one or two books can completely change your outlook and business success. Recommend.
