4000 weeks, The sunday times bestseller

Product description

From the Back Cover

Rejecting the futile modern obsession with 'getting everything done,' Four Thousand Weeks introduces readers to tools for constructing a meaningful life by embracing rather than denying their limitations.

Drawing on the insights of both ancient and contemporary philosophers, psychologists, and spiritual teachers, Oliver Burkeman sets out to realign our relationship with time - and in doing so, to liberate us from its tyranny.
--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

This book is wonderful. Instead of offering new tips on how to cram more into your day, it questions why we feel the need to ... My favourite kind of book is this one ... it examines the human struggle with intelligence, wisdom, humour and humility. Yes, there are suggestions of ways we might do things a bit differently, but underlying those suggestions is the radical idea that we're already doing just fine -- Marianne Power ― The Times

Perfectly pitched somewhere between practical self-help book and philosophical quest ... as with all the best quests, its many pleasures don't require a fast-forward button, but happen along the way -- Tim Adams ―
Observer

Life is finite. You don't have to fit everything in. Enjoy your life. Breathe out. Read this book and wake up to a new way of thinking and living ―
Emma Gannon, author of The Multi-Hyphen Method

A wonderfully honest book,
Four Thousand Weeks is a much-needed reality check on our culture's crazy assumptions around work, productivity and living a meaningful life -- Mark Manson, bestselling author of Everything is F*cked and The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

His book will challenge and amuse you. And it may even spur you on to change your life. At the very least reading it would be a good use of one of your four thousand weeks -- Robbie Smith ―
Evening Standard --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous book
By P. Rosser on 30 August 2021
A brilliant book about how common methods of Time Management are a flawed concept and how we really should use the very small amount of time available to us.
