How to Live on 24 Hours a Day (Version 2)

Written by:
Arnold Bennett
Narrated by:
Phil Chenevert

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
January 2017
1 hour 36 minutes
Are you really 'living', or just existing? Do you want to improve yourself or just continue to muddle through? Do you use the time given you each day, or just throw most of it away? These questions Bennett asks each of us and for those who want to really live and learn, offers very valuable advice.

Time is the most precious of commodities states Bennett in this book. Many books have been written on how to live on a certain amount of money each day. And he added that the old adage "time is money" understates the matter, as time can often produce money, but money cannot produce more time. Time is extremely limited, and Bennett urged others to make the best of the time remaining in their lives. Which of us lives on twenty-four hours a day? And when I say "lives," I do not mean exists, nor "muddles through." Which of us is free from that uneasy feeling that the "great spending departments" of his daily life are not managed as they ought to be? [...]

Which of us is not saying to himself -- which of us has not been saying to himself all his life: "I shall alter that when I have a little more time"? We never shall have any more time. We have, and we have always had, all the time there is. - Summary from the author's preface and the reader.

Not a bad book. I liked the first few chapters a lot and the rest was average. I would still recommend it.

The content was average at best and it drifted off topic too often. The narrator was very poor, shocking tone of voice and tried to be a comedian at times and I found myself drifting off all the time

For a book that was written over 100 years ago in 1910 it's a little dated but the major points of advise are still very relevant. Sweet little book.

Starts of really captivating, although a little hard to follow through due to the old style language/phrases. Would definitely recommend since it's free and not long.

Some good insights, like how exerting more mental energy is not necessarily tiring, just a change in mental activity is usually needed. We can be tired merely from a wrong attitude and wasteful approach to time.

A good book to make us review how we use our time. The narrators voice, although it suits the book, i found it a too quiet and hard to follow the rhythm.

Very informative and the narrator's voice is so clear. I love to listen to this again.

About the book title: I really feel it was on-point. And the fact I relate to most of what the book says, it is truly helpful in my opinion and it did help me a lot. Opened my mind to a lot of factors I should consider. About the narrator: he did a really great job, I think personally he delivered the tone of voice the author had in mind while writing the book. And the most satisfying factor is how humane was the narration. I could focus on, imagine, and relate to the words. Thanks a lot for both the author and the narrator

Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy this book at all. I didn’t feel it flowed well or provided useful advice. It seemed to go off topic frequently and was more interested in using impressive words than helpful guidance.
