Learn the secret of success by achieving more with less. Find out how you can tap the hidden potential of the 80/20 principle in your life.

Richard Koch is a highly successful entrepreneur and investor. His 80/20 Principle - that 80 per cent of results flow from just 20 per cent of the causes - is the one true principle of highly effective people and organizations.

In one of the decade's most original, provocative and powerful books, The 80/20 Principle shows how you can achieve much more with much less effort, time and resources, simply by concentrating on the all-important 20 per cent.

Astonishingly, though the 80/20 Principle has greatly influenced today's world, this is the first book which shows you how to use it in a systematic and practical way.

    " Required reading for people who are tired of working harder and longer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Conley | 2/6/2014

    " So far...its good. Very interesting the methods you can learn from this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven Beales | 2/6/2014

    " 80 per cent of the wisdom in this book can be gleaned by reading 20 per cent of it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeb Benson | 1/26/2014

    " I like the principle behind this book A LOT. But, I think the author extends too far and uses 80/20 a bit gratuitously. I guess it should be no surprise that reading only 20% of this book will give you 80% of the knowledge you need to apply 80/20 in your own work/life! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori Grant | 1/21/2014

    " A must-read book on how to effective as you manage your career. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 1/9/2014

    " This was a nice book. Koch is insightful and bold in his application of Vilfredo Pareto's study of wealth distributions in society. I have heard about Pareto efficiency, Pareto charts, and the 80/20 principle ever since college. However, the novelty here is Koch's attempt to really get outside of the typical business uses of Pareto analysis. I enjoyed the book quite a lot, and look forward to noodling on the ideas for some time until I've squeezed as much of the 'trivial many' things out of my life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Menzel | 12/30/2013

    " Changed my outlook on the world. Good stuff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy | 12/22/2013

    " Interesting idea, but lots of filler to make a whole book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paiman Chen | 11/29/2013

    " Powerful !!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 11/18/2013

    " Simple, powerful tool for focusing your efforts in a high yield way. Got a little redundant and I could have happier without the author's politics thrown in. 80% of the time I enjoyed reading my favorite 20% of the book..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 9/15/2013

    " I didn't finish it. There wasn't enough application to my life. Maybe one day I'll pick it up again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Bedrick | 3/22/2013

    " Seems obvious - but I need to remind myself of this from time to time. I need to read this again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kennedy | 11/13/2012

    " The best book I've ever read. 20 percent of what I think/I do create 80 percent of my value. It's great. Let's focus on your "20 percent". That's your strengths, your good friends, your good environment, your good time, your good teacher... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Atikah Abd Aziz | 10/30/2012

    " The underlying principle is easy enough, and does makes sense. Now I'm trying to apply the principle and see if it actually works. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roman Sanchez | 7/7/2012

    " Saved my ass when I had 6 finals in one week! That's all I've got to say. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 6/17/2010

    " The overall idea of this book has some merit. The author seems to repeat himself a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stefan | 7/20/2009

    " Success is not about how MUCH you work, but HOW you work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marc | 4/6/2008

    " We sometimes spend time focused on the wrong things in business and life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Umberto | 1/6/2008

    " Overall very good and useful but I did not think the parts addressing personal life was useful and the last 20 or so pages was pretty unhelpful, but had a useful idea and I look forward to implementing it. "
