Bennett address the problem of never having enough time. In this book, he urges hourly workers to use "spare" time to improve their lives, making the best of their time outside of work. He understands that most people are spending as much time as possible working to make more money, thus disliking their lives.

I enjoy reading books written 100 years ago. The writing style is delightfully different, and it is intriguing how words have changed. Not to mention attitudes. Nowadays, a book with this title would tell us how easy it is, and cheer us on - "you can do it." Not this book. It was written when cheerleading was not the self-help style.

After bantering the reader for a while, he gets around to some suggestions. For those who don't like his suggestions, he has other suggestions. In any case, mind control is the key to happiness. He advocates spending half of the evenings of the week in developing the mind. He gives some suggestions on how to train the mind. Even if you like literature don't just read. There needs to be thinking involved. And if you enjoy reading, it should not just be novels. To him, poetry is "the highest form of literature." It might take a while before I want to read poetry. Alas, my education did not cultivate that interest.

This is a beautiful little book.

It's pithy, blunt and eminently practical.

The lessons in the book are extremely valuable today. I will buy the print version as soon as possible ( )

A weird little book, but an entertaining read.
  dandantheman | Jul 21, 2018 |
really, a serious attempt to provide tips for getting more out of your 24 hours; very 1908 intensity ( )
