    Arnold Bennett
    Enoch Arnold Bennett always known as Arnold Bennett was one of the most remarkable literary figures of his time, a product of the English Potteries that he made famous as the Five Towns Yet he could hardly wait to escape his home town, and he did so by the sheer force of his ambition to succeed as an author In his time he turned his hand to every kind of writing, but he will be remembered for such novels as The Old Wives Tale, the Clayhanger trilogy Clayhanger, Hilda Lessways, and These Twain , and The Card He also wrote such intriguing self improvement books as Literary Taste, How To Live on 24 Hours a Day, The Human Machine, etc.


    Arnold Bennett, novelist and father of omelettes here addresses the fundamental issue of life that one can live with intension rather than drifting and feeling that life is passing you by.While first published in 1920 and aimed at an audience of clerks commuting from the London suburbs into the city everyday - bringing to mind T.S. Elliot's The Waste Land "Unreal City/ Under the brown fog of a winter dawn,/ A crowd flowed over London Bridge, so many, / I had not thought death had undone so many. [...]

    Flowery and funny self-help from the turn of the (last) century, this little book was an uncanny, spot-on description of my daily routine and how I often think of it. It was slightly shocking to hear my modern quotidian hang-ups called out by a guy addressing "clerks" in a time of 36-cent round-trip train tickets, since I tend to think of them as my personal hang-ups. As in, they're my cross to bear and no one else could possibly understand, yadda yadda yadda.It was pleasantly deflating to be sh [...]

    This guy is quite a baller. "What I suggest is that at six o'clock you look facts in the face and admit that you are not tired (because you are not, you know)" "'I hate all the arts!' you say. My dear sir, I respect you more and more." and a lot more badass quotes that I forgot to write down.But also, he's an example that proves that this "lifestyle design" or even "time management" stuff wasn't born yesterday. He's writing this for the common middle-class you or me, who wishes to "accomplish so [...]

    How to live on 24 hours a day?! Oh tell me about it! I had always thought 24 hours in a day are never enough to do everything I want to do. Oftentimes I wished that a day extended to at least 34 hours. Some other times though, I wished for the clock to stop so that I get to do what I want without compromising the things I NEED to do. The dilemma between the wants and the needs is always a strenuous battle. But Arnold Bennett managed to pacify and console my soul. Written 102 years ago (!!!), thi [...]

    I thought of the question one day, and lo and behold, such a book exists. I wouldn't call it a masterpice, but the writing is something I could enjoy and rely on over and over again. It gives some very practical advice, reproaches and warnings when tackling this endeavor that many people come short of achieving all the time--optimally spending one's time. It's also very fun for me to glean the norms of the time when this was written.For those who have not read it, I will start you off with this: [...]

    In this book, Bennett urges hourly workers to use "spare" time to improve their lives, making the best of their time outside of work. He understands that most people are spending as much time as possible working to make more money, thus disliking their lives. "Time is money" seriously understates this matter, more time can generate more money, but money cannot buy you more time

    You might expect from the title that this book will be some kind of time management tome, but it is anything but that. The author is intent on making sure that people 'live' rather than merely 'exist'. He proposes just one method for this 'living': to use your time wisely and learn to expand your mind and concentration. Some of his advice may seem archaic, and yet it is still quite relevant today. In this age of mindless entertainment, it may be even more important to make an active decision in [...]

    How to Live on 24 Hours a Day, a very short work, (or perhaps more appropriately called a pamphlet), by Arnold Bennett, insists on the very high importance of living to the fullest, constantly and with all expedience. It is not a time-management guide, (as the length and title would suggest), but more of a brief examination of the importance of truly living, as opposed to mere monotonous and melancholy existence. General aims, and the means to employ them are suggested, and the author, (whom I h [...]

    Rating: 4.5/5 When I started reading this book, I had no idea about it being hundred years old! At the start, I felt that the tone of the writer is far different than what I am used to reading, after few pages I started loving the book, only after which I googled about it!As the name says, the book teaches you how to live with satisfaction. It talks about your daily life & points towards the wrongs being done by you.I have read several self-help books, most of them share more or less the sam [...]

    I read this book in daily installments via dailylit, and it took two weeks. Two weeks of my life that I will never get back. While the book opens with a decent premise (your 9-5 job sucks away your energy and joie de vivre, and this book promises to teach you how to reclaim the other 16 hours of your day and mold it into an affirming and enriching life) it falls too quickly into a murky quagmire of inexcusable flaws. I will number them for you. 1. This book is addressed quite specifically to a M [...]

    The amount of quotes needed to be highlighted is astonishing! One would think that it is a practical book, telling you how to cram everything into our 24 hours slot; however, it has more of a philosophical touch to it. The author starts the book with an argument about how precious life is, how we all have this precious pearl of unstructured 24 hours per day (and no more). How we can all turn a new leaf if we want to. He encourages people to start changing from now on because the future hasn't ha [...]

    I enjoyed reading this slim little volume and reading some time management advice from quite a different era. Funny though, what he says I've read in many other modern books, only he says it far more succinctly and with greater style and humor. I think many time management type gurus of today fall into the trap he mentions in the last chapter - namely, they become prigs who take themselves far too seriously. Thankfully, this author does not. This makes this book far more entertaining and a lot s [...]

    This book is not amazing, in fact the advice it offers is often outdated and not even applicable in a world where work, study, fun and even love evolve online. What was amazing, however, was the deep sense of comfort and understanding it gave me. I simply love Bennett in a strange, religious kind of way. He sounds so soothing and wise to me, I could follow him to the end of the world and never doubt a word of his. Or maybe it is just that he somehow manages to articulate many things I feel insid [...]

    I thought this was excellent. Little over hundred pages long and you can finish it in one sitting. It was written in the early 1900s and the message is still very very relevant today. Arnold Bennett tries to show you how to make the most of the day that you have and focus. I agree with a lot of what he says here because I would like to think that I live by the mentality also. Time is not money. Time is God to many. We are on this earth “for 4 days” as they say in my part of the world so how [...]

    A delightful little book/essay (can one call it a pamphlet if it’s an ebook…?) of 60-ish pages from 1908. I heard about it I believe from some random NaNoWriMo pep-talk or news email or something… Chris Baty or some person with a high position at NaNo randomly mentioned it (wish I could remember where!) and linked to it being free on kindle or gutenberg, so I randomly downloaded it at the time and promptly didn’t read it for a year or so. I finally did. I found to be fascinating, hilario [...]

    This was written over a century ago. The cheekiness, sarcasm and fine British humour alone makes it a very entertaining read!

    These 84 pages delivered above what I had expected.Read this with your "history goggles" on, realizing that Arnold Bennett wrote this for the upper-middle/high class working man with plenty of time to spare after work, but who trudges home exhausted after a day's work and faces the rest of his life without any sense of purpose. Bennett addresses the reader: "you see friends; you potter; you play cards; you flirt with a book; you note that old age is creeping on you; you take a stroll; you caress [...]

    I am not normally drawn to philosophy, which seems to me, like religion, to get caught up in eddies of meaningless dispute. Nor am I drawn to self-help, which seems to be one or two good sentences surrounded by a tremendous amount of padding. Sometimes, not even one good sentence. Anyway, I had gotten the idea that this was funny (I don't know where I came by that idea), so that's why I started it. "It'll make a nice little palate cleanser," I thought.Ha! This is brilliant stuff. Okay, Bennett w [...]

    Bạn nào mình yêu quý lắm, mình sẽ giới thiệu quyển này cho mà đọc. Sách hay đến bất ngờ. Nội dung dễ hiểu, lời lẽ giản dị, xen lẫn đâu đó là giọng điệu hài hước không lẫn vào đâu được của Nguyễn Hiển Lê - gì chứ cứ là sách của bác này dịch thì mình luôn tin tưởng hết mực. Mở ngoặc là mình ghét sách kiểu self-help + how to lắm, nhưng cư [...]

    Initially I thought this book would be another compilation of time-management advice. Not at all! Its emphasis is on the word "live" in the title, and the goal is to help you arrive at a feeling of having lived your life, rather than passing through it and feeling vaguely dissatisfied. The advised process by which you may achieve this is to revisit how you employ your non-work hours, and to use them to greater personal benefit through a combination of mental focus exercise, self-analysis, and en [...]

    Brilliantly written, never lacking in its sense of humour, concise and practical. The author’s style is engaging and empathetic, and his suggested program is not hard to follow. I liked how he describes time and the haunting feeling of wasting one’s life without doing what he had always aspired to. Dying in a trip to Mecca without ever reaching there is better than not to have taken any steps at all. It is okay to fail as long as it doesn’t affect your self-esteem. Start by taking baby ste [...]

    A timeless piece that doesn't play around with words and gets straight to the point,this book shows ou the importance of living instead of mere existing that it shows you how to do it!Although it was writing in 1906 when they didn't even have all this social media embedded in their daily lives as we do , the book is still strangely very applicable. this tiny book is to be treasured and as my first "self help book" i can proudly say it'll get me to red more !

    This book is hard to put down once you've started it, I started it one evening while laying in bed and kept reading it until 4am!! For all you go getters this book was published just for you.I think this is a short yer powerful book. It makes you think about how the hours of your day just pass you by without you realizing it. It gives a nice plan for the better use of your time which is really easy to implement.

    not what i expected , but it was ok

    Could have used much simple words

    Knowing that the book is old enough doesn't alter the truth that it adds nothing to managing your time.

    Meh, it shows its date a bit too much for me.

    In the book, Bennett addressed the large and growing number of white-collar workers that had accumulated since the advent of the Industrial Revolution. In his view, these workers put in eight hours a day, 40 hours a week, at jobs they did not enjoy, and at worst hated. They worked to make a living, but their daily existence consisted of waking up, getting ready for work, working as little as possible during the work day, going home, unwinding, going to sleep, and repeating the process the next d [...]

    I enjoy reading books written 100 years ago. The writing style is delightfully different, and it is intriguing how words have changed. Not to mention attitudes. Nowadays, a book with this title would tell us how easy it is, and cheer us on - "you can do it." Not this book. It was written when cheerleading was not the self-help style. After bantering the reader for a while, he gets around to some suggestions. For those who don't like his suggestions, he has other suggestions. In any case, mind co [...]

    تم نشر هذا الكتاب عام 1910، أى أنه نشر منذ 103 عام! قد يبدو من عنوان الكتاب أنه يدور حول إدارة الوقت، فى الواقع موضوع إدارة الوقت يكاد يكون مناقشا على هامش موضوع الكتاب الأصلى و هو أن "نحيا" وليس مجرد أن "نتواجد" فقط. هذا الكتاب يهتم بمناقشة موضوع الوقت من وجهة نظر فلسفية مما يحث الق [...]
