Edward G. Brown’s The Time Bandit Solution

I received this book for a fair and honest review.

Overview: Mr. Brown takes us into the idea of saving time. Not by telling us to get more organized, though that always helps, but by utilizing a technique he calls time-locking. Who would have thought that the basic “Quiet Time,” so many of us are familiar with, could be so important?

Story Telling: This is a good way to explain anything. Mr. Brown includes bullet points, charts, and a clever chapter naming scheme.

Likes: I like how Mr. Brown used himself as an example of how his ideas can and will work. Nothing like being an example of your ideas, especially since that proves that you truly believe in your policy.

Dislikes: I didn’t care much for the scripted sales pitch idea. There has to be a way to inform someone you need time to think without reading or memorizing a script. But then again, some people might need this aide. Other than that, there were a few things that I didn’t understand, but as they don’t work for me now, I have time to gain that understanding.

Favorite Scene: My favorite parts of this book were the Spanish and Irish sales people’s points about business meetings.

Conclusion: This is a very helpful book. One that will benefit most if they can let go of the idea of “idle hands are the devil’s workshop.”
