Product Description

Review

18 MINUTES is an intensely smart, insanely readable, and eminently practical guide to boosting our effectiveness and deepening our satisfaction. I've already benefited from the ideas in is book in my own work. So will you.

-- Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind (
)

Pick this book up and read it. Bregman's wisdom, humility, and ability to tell a great story run through every page of this gem. 18 Minutes is the best blend of a business book and a self-help book I have ever read.

--Robert Sutton, Stanford University Professor and bestselling author of Good Boss, Bad Boss (
)

Feeling in control of your time is a key element of happiness. In the thoughtful, practical, and often funny 18 MINUTES, Peter Bregman explains how to make sure we have plenty of time to do the things that matter most to us -- so that our lives reflect our true values and priorities.

--Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project (
)

Bregman has taken the advice from his popular Harvard Business Review columns and turned it into a book for people who feel that they don't have enough hours in the day to do what they need to do. He offers straightforward advice: focus your priorities at the annual, daily, and moment-to-moment level; determine your goals; eliminate distractions that don't let you achieve those goals; and be firm regarding your boundaries. While the reader has no doubt heard this advice from other self-help books, Bregman's anecdotes are helpful and funny, his advice is sound, and his points are easy to grasp. Hopefully readers will find what he has to say useful and not just a retread of things they already know--multitasking is a myth, take time to refocus throughout the day, motivate your employees with fun--from other sources.

--Publishers Weekly (
)

I was recommended this book by a colleague at work. I thank him for that.
It's a very good book filled with motivating advices to increase productivity in a day/month/year of work/life.

Close to 300 pages, but an easy and interesting read. You keep going wanting to get to the next page (and it's not a thriller!).
The kind of book that when you are in, you feel the author is you personal coach and he keeps driving you to do better, to take notes, think, rethink and improve.

Very useful for everyone seriously looking to improve efficiency and focus on the things that matter.

Format: Hardcover
This book is written in a deceptively simple format, with short chapters and quite a few illustrations. Don't be deceived into thinking this is fluff, though. This book provides good insights, all the more valuable because of their accessibility. This is not the be-all and end-all of time management books, but you could do worse than to have this one on the shelf.

I recommend this book to my clients who have "too much on their plate". It is easy to read, quick to implement and the worksheets are useful. The process helps with decision making and prioritizing and makes it much easier to say "yes" to the important things and "no" to the unimportant.

Peter Bregman is a genius. Check out his web site and be inspired.
He is practical in a way we can put to work right away but most of all motivation to take action.
Changes happen right away in a way that is a life change.
