This classic time-management book has inspired generations of men and women to live conscious, deliberate lives. Originally published in 1908, this collection of time-saving tips is still amazingly current as it discusses the challenge to live the fullest life possible.

Arnold Bennett argues that, although you may have no control over the 8 hours you have to work, you still have control over the other 16. He proposes a program of self-improvement as a means of achieving happiness, and details how you can squeeze 90 minutes at least three times a week for active self-improvement activities to wake you up to the splendor and vibrancy of life, rather than living like a zombie before and after work.

Bennett urges you to leave behind mundane everyday concerns and focus on pursuing your true desires to live the fullest possible existence. Reflection, concentration, and study techniques expand the boundaries of ourselves and remind us that time is ours alone to manage. In the thirty minutes it will take you to read, you will forever be aware of the passing of time and the methods of utilizing it to your advantage.

A timless self-help book that can work for everyone

Though it was written 90 years ago, "How To Live" addresses the inadequacies, frustrations, disappointments of people today in all walks of life and it does so with humor and wisdom. A daily dose of "How To Live" is at least as nourishing for the brain and soul as a multi-vitamin for the body. Arnold Bennett created a classic of its kind, a self-help book that really helps.

A delight to read, and read again, (and again)

Rare is the book that stands the test of time. Rarer still is the book that can be read multiple times and still be engaging. This is decidedly one of those books. Each time I pull it off the shelf, I find once again how current it is, how useful, and also entertaining. Bennett is a pleasure to read and very insightful. I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. You can find a short write-up on this and other related books of his online at Wikipedia.

Tiny book with a huge content

This amazing little book talks about some of the most important aspects of a full existence: the awareness of the passing time and methods of utilizing it to one's unique advantage. It lays out a structure to a possible way of filling one's time, and points to the obstacles and dangers lying in this execution.

The author's style is extremely honest and clear. Although it is an old book and some examples may not apply to you, the core of the approach definitely applies to every individual living in the present day.

So take this book, read it, reflect on what it says, try out its suggestions, then I guarantee you that you will have a fuller/happier life. What more can one expect from any book, let alone a small one such as this?

P.S.: I also suggest "The human machine" by A. Bennett, if you like this one.

Not enough time in the day? Not any more

Many books have been written over the years attempting to tell people how to improve their lives. They usually involve living on a certain amount of money per week or month. This book was first published in 1908, and was a major bestseller. It could be considered the first self-help book, and it takes a different approach, looking at time instead of money.

Time is a very funny thing; everyone gets the same amount per day. Rich people do not get more than poor people. It's not possible to go the store and buy time. Out of that 24 hours per day, everyone must carve out a life (marriage, family, work, hobbies, religion, etc).

This book was written in a time and place (England of the early 1900s) where everyone took the train to work. One of the author's suggestions is to use that time concentrating on one thing; it doesn't matter what it is. If your mind starts wandering, hook a leash to it and bring it back. I'm not sure how well this would work today, when everyone drives to work. You say you can't concentrate for very long? Having to give a big presentation at work, or final exams in school, does a wonderful job of focusing the mind.

Then comes the evening, after the reader has gotten home from work. If this book had been written today, the author might say that occasionally vegging out in front of the TV is not a bad thing, but don't be like the average American, who does it for several hours a day, every day. Take, say, two hours a night, three nights a week, for a total of six hours. Use that time to learn a subject about which the reader is passionate, a hobby or interest. The subject can be literally anything, from A to Z. If a big subject like history is chosen, it's allowable to narrow it down to, for instance, the French Revolution or the Vietnam War. If a subject like classical music is chosen, go to an occasional concert or try your hand at playing an instrument. Again, if this book was written today, the author might say to use the internet to research your topic, but stay away from the chat rooms. During your learning time (for lack of a better term), lay off the popular novels. The author has nothing against them, but the idea is to give your brain a workout; novels don't do that. Most of all, take your time. The worst thing a person can do is burnout.

This book is small, but mighty. It says a lot, and it's the sort of book that can be used by everyone, from one end of society to the other. Not enough time in the day? Not after reading this gem.

  • Have you ever heard the expression "machiavellian"? It comes from this historical book. The Prince, a political and philosophical discourse on real-world leadership, was written in 1513 by the celebrated diplomat and theorist Niccolo Machiavelli, and is still one of the most important books on strategic management ever written.

    As opposed to authors from our time, Machiavelli lived in a time of principalities and met with countless princes as a prominent diplomat in Florence. From these experiences he gathered the most successful traits of leaders, and explains his findings in The Prince.

  • Uncle Tom's Cabin is one of those books that everybody has heard of, but few people have actually read. It deserves to be read - not just because it is one of the bestselling books of all time, nor the case that its vivid dramatization of slavery’s cruelties so aroused readers, that Abraham Lincoln told Stowe her work had been a catalyst for the Civil War. This is a book that changed history.
