Arnold Bennett was an English novelist and author. Among his most popular novels are The Grand Babylon Hotel and Anna of the Five Towns. However, none of his novels approached the popularity of his little book, How to Live on Twenty-Four Hours a Day. It caused a sensation when first printed and continues to be printed and widely read today.

In it, he offers practical advice on how one might live (as opposed to just existing ) within the confines of 24 hours a day. Bennett shows his readers how to live life to the fullest, given that there are 24 hours in a day and always so much to do. Download and start listening now!

    " While I appreciate this is a classic, and can understand his perspective, I just don't think his suggestions are applicable in modern life. At least it isn't to my life. Basically he says outside of your 8 hour work day, you have 16 hours to choose to do whatever it is you like, whatever inspires you, cultivates your mind, fulfills your passion, etc. So you should carve out at least 7 hours a week pursuing those interests. That's just not realistic considering my current life with small children. Maybe someday when they go off to college, but not now. I did like his suggestion for practicing mental discipline, however. As short as it was, I found it difficult to dredge through due to the cultural language differences. "

    " This is a nice quick read and the kindle version is free on Amazon. It was written in 1910 to solve the same problem we face today: how to make valuable use of the time we have alive. I have no doubt that following the author's advice would lead to a happier and more fulfilling life, but it falls shy of helping a person develop meaning in their lives. "

    " Still applicable, despite how old-fashioned it reads. Solid advice. "
