How to Live on 24 Hours a Day

How to Live on 24 Hours a Day

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: Donal Brown Release Date: 01/06/2020

You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose. Are you really 'living', or just existing? Do you want to improve yourself or just continue to muddle through? Do you use the time given you each day, or just throw most of it away? These questions Bennett asks each of us and for those who want to really live and learn, offers very valuable advice. Time is the most precious of commodities states Bennett in this book. Many books have been written on how to live on a certain amount of money each day. And he added that the old adage 'time is money' understates the matter, as time can often produce money, but money cannot produce more time. Time is extremely limited, and Bennett urged others to make the best of the time remaining in their lives.

Self and Self-management

Self and Self-management

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: Johnnie Ray Release Date: 01/03/2020

Self and Self-Management: Essays about Existing is one of Bennett's most successful works, comprising a series of essays that address the struggles concerning work that mainly young women have faced during his time, at an individual level. The essays start at a basis that seems to suggest all individuals have a certain ability to use their energy wisely while working, and to either tap into their own resources, or use tactics of avoidance that can be extremely elaborate at a psychological level. According to Bennett, 'some individuals appear to lack energy, when, in fact, they are full of energy which is merely dormant.' The essays themselves tackle issues that we are faced with on a daily basis even today. The lack of useful energy, inspiration and motivation that even the most brilliant people in the world seem to cope with at times often leads to debilitating consequences, many of which can be avoided - according to Bennett - with a proper understanding of the process. The author takes us through a deep psychological and philosophical journey into the human psyche, that seems to lead to practical applications and results, however, only for those willing to put the ideas of books such as this one to the task.

Mental Efficiency

Mental Efficiency

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: Ava Goldin Release Date: 01/03/2020

In this light-hearted yet thought-provoking book, Bennett offers his thoughts on exercising the mind, organising your life, the advantages (and disadvantages) of marriage and other pocket philosophies. A man honestly tries to make a good impression. What is the result? The result merely is that his friends, in the privacy of their minds, set him down as a man who tries to make a good impression. If much depends on the result of a single interview, or a couple of interviews, a man may conceivably force another to accept an impression of himself which he would like to convey.

How to Live on 24 Hours a Day: The Complete Original Edition

How to Live on 24 Hours a Day: The Complete Original Edition

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: Bruce Kramer Release Date: 01/02/2020

Learn to use your most precious commodity—time—to truly live. Arnold Bennett’s classic book, How to Live on 24 Hours a Day, has been changing the way people use and consider their time since it was first published in 1910. In the intervening century surprisingly little has changed—we still struggle to make use of our time and are often plagued by the persistent worry that we are not making the most of our lives. Bennett encourages listeners to stop merely following the rote patterns of their lives and leverage their free hours by viewing time as a commodity like money—each of us is allotted exactly 24 hours every day to spend as we see fit. What we make of our lives will ultimately be a result of what we make of that time. Bennett’s prescription is simple, but revolutionary: consider the time outside your work day as an entirely separate day, sixteen hours (give or take) during which you are free to do anything you like to grow and improve yourself and your happiness. Building on that premise, he helps listeners begin to take control of their time—starting with just 90 minutes three times a week—and use it to truly live. Bennett’s writing is realistic and his advice transcends the years since it was first written. How to Live on 24 Hours a Day is an honest and refreshing perspective on how we can seize control of our time and spend it in the wisest way possible.

The Matador of the Five Towns

The Matador of the Five Towns

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Richard Mitchley Release Date: 01/01/2020

Arnold Bennett was born in 1867 in Hanley one of the six towns that formed the Potteries that later joined together to become Stoke On Trent; the area in which most of his works are located. For a short time he worked for his solicitor father before realising that to advance his life he would need to become his own man. Moving to London at 21 he obtained work as a solicitor’s clerk and gradually moved into a career of Journalism.At the turn of the Century he turned full time to writing and shortly thereafter in 1903 he moved to Paris and in 1908 published to great acclaim The Old Wives Tale. With this his reputation was set. Clayhanger and The Old Wives Tale are perhaps his greatest and most lauded novels. But standing next to these are many fine short stories and it is to these in this volume we turn our attention. Bennett bathes us in vignettes of life, of characters that whatever their ambitions are easy to immerse ourselves in.

But despite the best efforts of the Bruges police department to drain the bottom of the canal over several days, the bracelet does not reappear. Cecil Thorold, a mutual acquaintance who also happened to be visiting Bruges, sets out to solve the mystery. But is he more motivated to recover the jewellery, or to thwart the suave and mysterious foreign Count who seems to be very interested in Kitty Sartorius.
