An audiobook in Tamil language.

Your pizza delivered at your doorstep in 30 minutes or your money back: a strategy that has helped the fast food industry grow at a tremendous pace. Punctuality and maximization of the time at our disposal has become the key to success in almost every endeavor. Is time management so vital to business success? Is work executed on time, every time, all that it's made out to be? Do we seriously believe we can actually do it in the midst of all chaos and unreliability all around us?

You bet. It's absolutely essential to do things perfectly on time. It's an undeniable fact of life, wherever you are. You can regain all your losses, but not time lost, time wasted. Not a second of your life can you regain, once you have forfeited it, no matter how hard you try. Time once lost is forever lost.

Most of us are masters of the art of procrastination, that thief of time. We postpone. We digress from our objective. We distract ourselves from the main purpose of our life. We shamelessly miss deadlines. We turn up late for meetings, waste time in preliminary chit-chat without coming to the agenda of our discussions. We fail to plan our programs and end up spending twice the time we should really spend. We get sidetracked into inconsequential gossip. Stop and think. How often have you messed up a project by wasting time on the job?

Don't leave things to chance. Take notes. Maintain a diary. Plan. Schedule. Save time you'd otherwise waste in doing and redoing things because you did not prepare, did not do your homework.

Don't worry. Time management is not as tough as you think. It's simple. You can conquer time, provided you follow the simple steps this audiobook details. Listen to the proven time-management techniques it advocates. Go ahead, absorb them, and internalize them. The time you spend on them is more than time spent. It's an investment in your future.

    " I probably would have given this 4 stars if all the documentary extras had been stuck at the end instead of interspersed, distracting me from Franny's story and making the book much more disjointed than it needed to be. Then I thought, maybe the confusion and disorientation caused by the addition of photos, snippits of speeches, newspaper clippings and other ephemera may be the authors way of helping you relate to the confusion and disorientation the character might be going through, living through the Cuban missile crisis, threat of nuclear annihilation, her uncle going crazy (maybe) and a feud with her old best friend/ new frenemy. Regardless, I wish the extras were at the end. I promise, dear author, I will read them. I do love extra historical documents and other materials at the end of my books. Just don't take me out of the world of the story. Let me sink into it. An engaging coming of age story on an airforce base in suburban Maryland in the summer of 1962. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie Tanner | 1/28/2014

    " Amazing graphic black and white pictures go along with an interesting story about a girl coming of age during the Cuban missile crisis. Great story! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olivia | 1/6/2014

    " If only I could rate this book on the amazing photos and song lyrics and such. Then I would have given it 5 stars, no doubt. But I can't. While the material in the book from the 60's was amazing, the story was only ok. Didn't really relate to the character or even really care by the end. So yeah. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bethany Erickson | 12/28/2013

    " This book is so amazing. I can't believe it hasn't gotten more five star ratings. It is my pick for 2011 Newbery winner. I just started this book as a read-aloud this week and my kids are completely into it. Love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 12/24/2013

    " Loved this! I actually listened to it though. It's set during the Cuban Missile Crisis and throughout the book are photographs, song lyrics, quotes, and historical information from the time. The actual story about a girl dealing with this, and other issues is so great! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Regan | 10/19/2013

    " Best thing I've read in a while. An engaging story of growing up in the frightening time around the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 with photos, quotes, and ephemera of the time that really helps capture the era. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 10/2/2013

    " A children's fiction novel that plunked me right into the middle of the Cuban Missile Crisis, painting an unforgettable picture using lyrics, quotes, clippings, and images. Click here for my full review. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Legojana | 9/3/2013

    " Countdown can capture and relate to young readers. Putting readers in different trials and conflicts happening during this time period gives readers younger and after this era a small sense of what it felt like everyday living in the 1960's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eloise | 6/15/2013

    " I could almost feel myself curled into a ball under my desk at school as I read this book. Wiles masterfully captures what it felt like to be 11 years old during the Cuban Missile Crisis. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin | 3/24/2013

    " This book was good until the ending which is a bad thing because the ending leaves a lasting impression. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simon.z | 2/16/2013

    " This book was historical fiction "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimmae | 1/22/2012

    " I appreciate this historical fiction for children though readers would benefit from more context on the time (1962) than provided by the book alone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 5/7/2011

    " I liked the audio clips as part of the audiobook, and it seemed a good portrayal of a kid's perspective of the Cuban Missile Crisis with a military family. It could have been a lot more complex, but worked for kids "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 3/27/2011

    " This novel is a masterpiece at weaving real "footage from 1962" in separate pages between the story chapters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madame Librarian | 10/28/2008

    " May not appeal to kids but a great book for us old kids. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virginia Walter | 1/13/2008

    " The Cold War and the Cuban Missile Crisis set the background for this story of a young girl's efforts to understand her family dynamics (and secrets) as well as the world she lives in. "
