Good concepts.

This book qualifies by that standard. I haven't finished listening to it, and I've already come away with at least two ideas that have made a major difference in both my personal and my business life.

Really relaxing

Great book on productivity and time management. The principles are highly practical and effective, as I have started to find. The second part of the book provides numerous case studies that help to illustrate and embed the principles. I liked that.

Very Much Needed

This book reminds you that you have the time, you just need to allocate it in ways that serve you instead of letting it control you.

This is a powerful book!

I've listened to multiple time-management books through the years by all the major gurus. Frankly, this is the single most practical time management book I've ever listened. For example, using Adesh Silva's techniques, I was able to get to Inbox zero for the FIRST TIME. I have recommended this book to many folks and can't speak highly enough about it.
