My Take on the BookFull of wonderful lessons about how to take the most out of your day this book was full of easy to read chapters that made you truly think about what is important in your life and how you can maximize your time personally and professionally. I was impressed by how easy some of the ideas were, as some were ones that I already do, while others were new to me and ones that I do plan to implement in my own life. While I know that I cannot actually make 25 hours in a day, I know that I can do things smarter and this book is giving me some great new ideas!
