Practical, Down-To-Earth Advice That Works,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How To Be Smart With Your Time: Expert Advice from the Star of Dragons' Den (Paperback)
I found this book really useful in terms of learning practical, commonsense ways to make better use of my time and have successfully implemented a lot of the advice from this book into my own personal/business time.
Duncan Bannatyne's style of writing is very no-nonsense, in the sense that he makes points clearly and quickly, without dragging them on too much. I like that style of writing, which is why I've enjoyed his books so far.
The key lesson from this book is vital, in my opinion: "Replication is the best model for success because it eliminates risk"
What he means by that is that by doing things, such as time-management, in a way that has worked brilliantly for other people, as opposed to inventing some innovative time-management system, you know you're getting something that works, because it's been tested before.
Innovation is timely, risky and avoiding it helps eliminate risk. This is one of the wisest nuggets of business information I've heard, period.
For the relatively small price of this book, I think you'll get a very good return on your investment. That's been the case for me, at least.
