Do you know how you spend your time each week? Author Laura Vanderkam wants to help readers become more productive and successful with her book 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think. Vanderkam explains that when people focus on what they do best and/or what brings them the most satisfaction, there is plenty of time for everything. With exercises and assignments at the end of each chapter, Vanderkam provides customizable plans to assist readers in becoming more efficient. Vanderkam maintains an impersonal tone throughout the book and offers some strategies that might not be plausible for the average reader (like employing a personal organizer and personal shopper) yet 168 Hours is informative, helpful and worth a look.

About the Reviewer

My mother was the one who sparked my love of books. Long before school instruction, she sat me down and taught me to read. My childhood was filled with trips to the library and bookmobile to find great books. My first loves were The Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder and the Pippi Longstocking series by Astrid Lingren. Now as a mom and speech pathologist, I am constantly looking for good, clean books to use at home and in therapy. I enjoy reading many different genres, but my favorites are usually historical fiction. I married my best friend, the “boy next door”, and we have a beautiful little girl who we often find sprawled out on the floor, flipping through picture books. Together our family likes to swim, run and play tennis. Besides reading, I also love to bake, garden and travel.
