Editorial Reviews

Review Review:
"This book gives you an actionable plan for how to be more productive. If you're sick of all these books that talk and talk about incoherent ideas and then give you no way to take ACTION, then this book is a must read for you. I've read all the top authors in the personal development category, and the thing that Chandler and James do BETTER than the like of Carnegie, Tracy, Canfield, Ferris, etc.. is that they GET TO THE POINT. They don't just write words for the sake of fluff.This book is pure gold, and if you read it you will take away at LEAST three points on how to be more productive..GUARANTEED!" ~Darren Boulton Review:
"I've read A LOT of material on productivity. Everything from scientific journals to quick "5 Things To Do...." to everything in between. When I first opened the ebook I really was expecting a laundry list of tips and tools and for it to be useful in a couple areas, but that was about it. BOY WAS I WRONG.... and I'm really glad I was. The Productive Person is a true plan for hacking productivity in a way that creates longevity and gives your new routines staying power. The authors present you with everything you need (including example schedules), but then leave you to commit to the changes. NO BS list of 10 tools here that you will abandon in 3 days.
On top of the content, it's a quick read (like 40-something pages) that could be done in under an hour, minus a couple thought provoking questions they pose to you. Useful, concise, blunt but entertaining. What more could anyone wanting to make some changes in this area ask for?" ~Josh Winkles

About the Author

Chandler Bolt
Chandler was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug at an early age when he saw that he could make a lot more money working for himself. While his friends were off searching for jobs, he was out starting businesses. 
He began early (age 11) by selling his personal snacks at scout camp and, by age 17 he hired his friends to help him operate his landscaping business that earned him $10,000 for college. All in all, by age 20 he started and ran over $320,000 in businesses.

During this time, he taught other college students to run their own successful businesses and received the "Entrepreneur of the Year" award from Young Entrepreneurs Across America.
Chandler now speaks to students across the country teaching them the lessons he's learned as a young entrepreneur and encouraging them to take the entrepreneurial leap.

James Roper
James has been an outlier his entire life. 

Brought up in a small town where most of his peers truly embodied the "small town" mentality, James was always looking for ways to grow. A rule-abiding rebel growing up, James continuously found ways to push societal limits as far as he could, just out of curiosity.

When he was a sophomore at The University of South Carolina, he started his own painting business with Young Entrepreneurs Across America and over the next 3 years progressed up the executive ladder to become the first YEAA executive in the state of SC.

After one year of college, James left his general manager with YEAA role to pursue his ultimate passion in life: professional speaking. Leaving guaranteed revenue streams behind, with little money in the bank, James began his professional speaking career. 

Within 6 months he was booked for collegiate orientations and multiple leadership conferences, and - oddly enough - he even created a personal growth workshop for a local theater's apprentice program.

James now has the privilege of traveling the country sharing messages about positivity, Gen-Y, peer leadership, productivity, and much more.

First of all, I did think this book had some useful tools for me, and overall I'm glad I made the purchase. My word of warning is that I wish the authors had highlighted a little more clearly (or perhaps they did and I just wasn't paying enough attention) how heavily this book is geared toward people who make their own daily schedules EVERY day (entrepreneurs, stay at home parents, self-employed, etc.) Like I said, there ARE some useful tools that even people who don't make their own schedules can benefit from, but the majority of this book is talking specifically to people who make their own schedule all day every day, not for people like me who work regular jobs and have their work schedule blocked off for them for a certain number of hours every day. The authors' main point seems to be helping those with complete freedom of schedule create order and structure for themselves so they don't fall prey to wasting time and falling behind when it comes to the productivity of their business ventures. I was looking for a time management book geared more toward helping me make the best use of the time that is "my own" (i.e., not time scheduled 9-5 on weekdays for work), but this book is meant for those people who have ALL of their time as 'their own'. If you ARE one of these people, then I think this book could be a really useful tool, especially if you're having a hard time setting and sticking to a schedule that works for you. For the rest of us without as much schedule freedom, I recommend Time Well Spent by Mike Burns.

Well-written, organized, and I applaud the authors for their initiative and drive. I read about 70-100 books per year and I've always argued that every book has some nugget of value and so is worth reading. This book proved to be the exception. I've never provided a review on amazon, but felt compelled to do so here because this type of effort by the authors concern me greatly. Unfortunately, the points made in this book are nothing more than what could be found on a random search on productivity blogs. Even if I had never read a book before, I could've found the book's information on a blog in about 20 minutes.
--Here's just one of many examples, see: and search on productivity (then follow their references a few times). Not to mention that there are no references citing where they pulled this information from - borrowing from others is valuable when appropriate, but please give them credit.
--There can be value in summarizing insights presented on such blogs for sure, but to do so, the book needs to do a rigorous and thorough review of insights and present them in a unique and helpful way. This book appears to have randomly selected a few of the many helpful "hacks."
--Indeed, it is self published because no reputable publisher would consider publishing this.
--The authors unfortunately focused on minimizing inputs (their time investment into the book) instead of maximizing outputs (value to readers).
--I think hacks are helpful, but the authors provide no evidence or justification for why the average person should focus on these few particular ones, beyond the fact that the two authors themselves find these useful.

This book, while short, got me thinking. Specifically, I wondered if there has ever been a "how-to"/business book directed at such a narrow audience. For this bare pamphlet (65 pages or so) appears to be geared exclusively for people with very little to do, no deadlines to speak of, and no one to answer to.

My first clue was when the author sought to establish his productivity bona fides by noting that he took 21 hours and maintained a straight A average one term in college, while SIMULTANEOUSLY pledging a business fraternity AND acting as referee for two intramural sports. impressive I suppose if you are not yet old enough to legally drink, but that schedule would hardly cause a busy professional to quail.

I should also note that the authors employ a very liberal definition of "entrepreneur" throughout the book. Entrepreneurs I know often have little free time, as they are consumed by investor presentations, operational meetings, dealing with shareholders, etc. These men and women apparently have not read this book, which is confident that no work responsibilities are so great that they cannot be knocked out in two three-hour blocks of time. Or, if you are truly focused, one four hour block, followed by a two hour lunch and an afternoon of "hanging out at the pool!" Hanging out with whom? The stay-at-home moms to whom this book is partially directed? Have these guys ever met a stay at home mom with kids under the age of, say, 17? My wife stayed at home during my daughter's elementary school years and her weekday pool time was maybe 10 hours a year--and we live in Florida. With a pool.
