The Power of a Half Hour

The Power of a Half Hour: Take Back Your Life 30 Minutes at a Time by Tommy Barnett was not what I expected. In fact I think it would have been better titled How to Live Life to the fullest by spending only 30 minutes a day. I expected this book to be about time management. How to use 30 minutes to the best ability. Instead, it appears the author was more writing about his own life experiences and how he used 30 minutes to feel refreshed and restored.

All that pushed aside, the organization of the book is easy to follow and consistent. Barnett’s book is comprised of 30 chapters that are designed to last around 30 minutes. Each chapter contains a suggestion on how to use 30 minutes to enrich your life. This book is more about ideas to use for 30 minutes, not overall time management.

I would recommend this book to individuals that are looking for 30 minute ideas that can rejuvenate and revitalize their life. If the individual is looking for ways to more effectively manage their time, the Power of a Half Hour will not be the book they are looking for. In a world where time (or the lack thereof) is becoming increasingly more precious, the concept of a half hour is especially relevant. Due to this book not being what I expected and focusing at times too much on the authors achievements, I have given this book 3/5 clocks.

 

Note: I received this book for free in exchange for my HONEST review.

    • My pleasure. It’s not exactly a time management book, but it does give suggestions for how to use 30 minutes. It depends what you are looking for in the book.

    • Yes, it is not the typical time management book, but it does give suggestions for how best to use 30 minutes. It really varies on what you are looking for in the book.
