10/10 Would highly recommend

Loved every chapter of this book!! I usually struggle to see books through to the end, but this book was a definite exception. Not only was all of the information relevant, it was really practical in the sense that it applied to any audience and was easy and clear to understand.

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!

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.

Good listen

I'm usually the one who procrastinates on everything but Kevin has given many good tips on how to avoid that and why I do it . Definitely a good read if you're bad at managing your day to day task or life

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.

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.

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.

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.

Captivated and inspired me from start to finish!

This book is by far the most inspirational book I've come across ... ever!
Not normally one to write a review but I had to with this!
Things I love about it ... it's to the point, gives you so many real life examples that are achievable and can be put into practise straight away. Bottom line is - this guy knows what he's talking about and conveys this in a simple way that one can easily relate to.

Highly recommend - I have already started being so much more productive at work and feeling less stressed and more on top of things!

Great!!

This book is very engaging ans Kevin gives some fantastic takeaways that you can implement in your life immediately. I responded to the email he sent once I signed up to get some free tools and he took the time to respond to me personally with some fantastic tips. Definitely recommend. Kevin clearly, genuinely cares about his readers success

In my Top 5 Book In This Genre

I have read/listened to several time management and productivity books and this ranks amongst one of the best. Of particular interest are chapters 4 (calendar blocking), 8 (email), 13 (themed days & regular time-slotting) & 15 (morning rituals) ((on the audio version)) although it's well worth listening to the whole thing.

helpful and fairly quick to get through

I have found myself in a bit of a slump in terms of keeping myself motivated and being efficient with my time. wondering what other folks do.

this boom is a good collection of habits that I will try to adopt.

really disappointed the free material doesn't exist on the site mentioned over and over.
