At just 60 pages long, this 1908 self-help book is full of advice that is as relevant today as over a century ago.

What gives it the edge over any modern-day self-help book is its brevity, language and the sheer entertainment value in the period references - to salarymen, servants et al.

A free kindle treat.

Met this work in an article by Michael Foot in 'The Pleasure of Reading', edited by Antonia Fraser. This would have been tricky to locate as a hard book. Re-kindled my pleasure in Bennett.

Quaint old-fashioned English text on how to not to bore oneself as an adult. Enjoyable. Very short. Has specific ideas on how to structure your life but mistakenly believes that the limiting resource in most people's lives is time, rather than motivation/energy. Also presumes that you're living in about 1930 as the man of the house. Still, there are some good points here and if you feel like your life is stagnating then could be worth a read.

A classic book written a long time ago but provides words of wisdom for the 21st century. The book is quite short but is an inspiring read

This is the best time management book I have ever read.
It is clear and very provocative.

If you require pampering stay away from this book
If you desire to sit around and waste your day this book is not for you.

Also if you like reading but wont put to use what you read this book is not for you -stay away.
This is for those who read and take action -

I never appreciated the value of time till I read this. The richest man can't wangle more of it than the very poorest among us and no one can use it more than once. Should be a cornerstone of all education .

Beats any of the self-help books I have ever read. Take an edifying walk hand-in-hand with a statelier past. This man did not only write great novels but had a grasp on life.

Gives a quick sketch of how to use time more wisely. A newer edition bearing in mind 21st century subjects would be good. But the concepts and principles given can be transferred appropriately.

Quick fun read but waffles and gives few useful hints. Nevertheless, interesting prospectives were proposed throughout the book. Fun for a quick read.
