5.0 out of 5 stars More than just work/life balance 2 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
There are many books on the market today dealing with the theme of work/life balance and this is one of the very best. Because 'Get a Life' is not just about the balance between life and work, but looks at how we attempt to balance every aspect of our lives, it is as valid for the full-time mother or recently retired as it is for the busy executive.
Nicholas Bate is a rigorous but humane author; he understands the challenges that face all of us as we try to juggle our commitments, but he never lets us off the hook. His book is full of inspiring and practical ideas for getting the most out of our lives as, expanding the 'compass point' concept from his first book 'Being the Best', he helps us find the direction we are seeking as well as the methods we can use to get where we want to be.
If I only read one personal development book this year, this would be the one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended! 27 Sep 2005
By Rolf Dobelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you are new to the self-help genre, this book is a keeper. Put it somewhere with easy access so you can review author Nicholas Bate's main points and implement his insights. Of course, like many self-help books, this one gets redundant at times. You'll loose track of how many times Bates exhorts you to pay attention. But maybe that's the point. With a prod or two from this book, you can become alert and ready to conquer each day's challenges at work and at home. We recommend this book to those who want to reshape their lives for satisfaction, happiness and productivity at work and at home.
