Boring

Nothing new or innovative here. Then spends time on telling you why you need to eat well and sleep.

Instantly useful,well organized & delivered

I really enjoyed this TIME CHUNKING method audiobook. I found it on the Audible app. It is full of useful informationI that can be applied immediately to almost any type of work. I listened to it several times, "in chunks", once, to get the general idea, and then I repeated it again to take notes of details that I can use.
The author's style is well-researched, concise, and well-organized. The examples are brief, but clearly explained and easy to follow, and sparked my mind to find my own applications.
I have short term memory deficit along with hyper-focus tendencies. This TIME CHUNKING method
gives me the tools to manage these two (often exasperating,) opposing behaviors, by giving my distractible brain a useful structure for getting my work done. The "25-minute focus on work, then 5 minute rest, 25 minute work, 5 minute rest" pattern is simple and straightforward, yet helps me accomplish a lot.
I have used quite a few other productivity methods but with only limited success. I was able to use this basic TIME CHUNKING method immediately. I know that as time goes on, I will add more details so that I can be even more productive. I can already see that my productivity is increasing, without having to wait 6 months to recognize improvement.
Some audiobook narrators are obviously NOT INTERESTED in the content or subject matter of the books they narrate. They speak so fast (trying to get it over with? ) that they don't even pause between paragraphs, topics and examples, or chapters, and use such a monotone, mechanical voice that it sounds like an automated machine. That drives me crazy!
Hooray for the narrator, Joe Hempel ! ! ! ! Fortunately, by contrast, Joe Hempel's delivery style is thoughtful and engaging. His pleasing conversational style is easy to listen to, and gives the listener enough time between topics and chapters to digest the subject matter before moving on.

The author also researched and provides his opinion (with pros and cons) on a short list of what he considers to be the best useful time management apps also intended to help keep me focused. I'm excited to try out these apps for myself and find which ones work best for me.
I've been pleasantly surprised at how this TIME CHUNKING method has helped me in feeling more satisfied at work. I recommend the TIME CHUNKINGg method to anyone who wants to improve their productivity, regardless of their learning style or the type of work they do.

Some good tips, but reads like a blog post...

I really liked the concept of this book, and was eager to listen based on the reviews. While the author shares some good information about time-chunking, there is a TON of repetitiveness and unnecessary garbage that ultimately ended up wasting my time. The writing is more appropriate for a stream-of-consciousness blog post or a teenage girl's diary than something you should pay money to listen to. I'd have preferred him to cut to the chase and boil the actual information down to about 1/2 hour. Instead, there were many things he repeated (things like "as I've said before, I do it this way because XYZ..."). This is a 2.5 hour audiobook. We remember from when you mentioned it the first 6 times. He also threw in several references to things he wanted to do or future things he planned to write about. This is good information for his personal to do list, but not useful for the listener. Regarding the method covered in the book, there were some things he mentioned that were completely ridiculous to me. When talking about keeping a list of things to do during his breaks, he listed something quick like "look up the number of calories in a sweet potato." Why on earth wouldn't you just type that into Google and get yourself an answer instead of typing it into a list? Maybe this is a typical very strict application of this type of method, but it seems ridiculous and counterproductive to me.

Skip this and google "time-chunking method" instead. You're welcome.

not worth a whole book

I felt a 5 paragraph summary of time chunking would some up this book. Overall, wasn't a bad listen.

This audiobook was amazing!

This book greatly increased my productivity and I saw this change in the first week of using the ideas taught. I would highly recommend this book.
