Great suggestions

I was able to listen to this on a Saturday, and made note of some great suggestions. I downloaded the extras, and will definitely put it into my quarterly review to measure the benefit . its long enough to add value, short enough to cover in a day. nicely done!

Very helpful, gave me a new perspective

The book was great and provided a lot of good tactics to help become more productive.
Only downside is that the website he refers too to receive the downloads is no longer active so you lose out on the helpful materials he refers too.

Resources are not available

This sounded like a good title and there is a lot of info packed into the book. The author narrates which I like. The only thing disappointing is there is no website anymore so the resources cannot be downloaded. Good compilation of timeless ideas.

The author makes no mention of EMPLOYEES

The author speaks about who can benefit EXCEPT employees. Still somewhat worth listening during a commute.

Requires more work

I was disappointed with this book, I felt I was reading a draft and not a final, polished version. I think a lot has been left on the shelf. The audio was average, and requires a professional infusion. I realize this audiobook is a few years older and perhaps it could be re-released in an updated, improved version. I think the material has potential, but I felt at times it was quite rudimentary.

Provides clarity & well narrated

Puts a finger on specific strategies that work. Makes a big difference changing perspective that it's about energy & focus optimization not time management.
Well narrated, I easily followed the stories during my morning runs.

Surprisingly a good guide to productivity

The content is fabulous. Narration is not to my taste; sounds like typical corporate training on sales increase.

Worth reading

I read and listened to this a couple of times. The advice is very straightforward and useful. It simply makes sense.
The narration by the author himself was entertaining and engaging.
It’s a very good audiobook / book.

Fast, efficient and useful

The author doesn’t reinvent the wheel but makes a great job of packaging useful tips and ideas on how to better manage one's time.

Quality of sound recording was a bit below par, but nothing too distracting.

I could see myself listening to this book on an annual basis. It's short and efficient and practical.

Productivity not time management - great reminder

This was an excellent book, read by an author whose voice struck the perfect balance between a supportive friend and a coach. While much of the content of professional development and self-help books is intuitive and already known by the reader, it is often not implemented by the reader or needs to be spelled out a different way. Kruse highlights some terrific points I will no doubt try to implement with the start of 2016.

At first I was put off by the repeated reference to his website. However, I was wrong to get annoyed. The repeated emphasis enabled me to recall the master your minutes web address and visit the website when I awoke at 4 am. Then I saw that the pdf tool/resource was a great takeaway souvenir. The delivery of the audiobook was masterful. I was able to fire off at least 2 dozen of Kruse's points and capture them on paper.

Clearly the points in the book resonated. I am committed to implementing and sharing, so they will no longer be secrets.

Powerful!

I've read many time management books, and the best tips from each are condensed into this book. There's also some new tips in this one that are completely original. This truly is the only time management book you'll need without wasting time on the other books. If you really follow the strategies in this book, you Will master your time!

great ideas

easy to listen to. I wish there was more illustrative focus on examples, implementation, and how to vs 5 ideas for 5 people at the closing of each chapter. good content, now I need to get another book on applying these.

Great advice for getting your life together!

I wanted to rearange my schedule ever since I noticed I was running late and falling behind on assignments, this so far had help immensely. The key goal is to take the advice, plan a schedule thats works for you, and most importantly - stick to it! Do make sure to plan a schedule that is best to your needs, the type of person you, and dont be afraid to rearrange it until you achieve something that gives you maximum efficiency with reasonable brakes.

Awesome book

It's an awesome book that I was already picking up tips and tricks to better manage my time as well as my life within 20 minutes, but it looks like the writer is so into time management that he narrated the book so fast. Thankfully, he already put up a pdf with summary and infographics for almost everything in the book.

Life "saver"

I have only implemented some of the points brought up in this book for the past 3 days. I already feel way more productive and have implemented the scheduling system with my subordinates already.
