Review

From The 80/20 Principle:

"The 80/20 Principle can and should be used by every intelligent person in their daily life...It can multiply the profitability of corporations and the effectiveness of any organization. It even holds the key to raising the quality and quantity of public services while cutting their cost... The 80/20 Principle asserts that a minority of causes, inputs, or effort usually lead to a majority of the results, outputs, or rewards. Taken literally, for example, 80 percent of what you achieve in your job comes from 20 percent of the time spent. Thus for all practical purposes, four fifths of the effort--a dominant part of it--is largely irrelevant."

To learn how you can tap the hidden potential of the 80/20 principle in your life, read Richard Koch's exciting new book.

From the Inside Flap

an be more effective with less effort by learning how to identify and leverage the 80/20 principle--the well-known, unpublicized secret that 80 percent of all our results in business and in life stem from a mere 20 percent of our efforts.

The 80/20 principle is one of the great secrets of highly effective people and organizations.

Did you know, for example, that 20 percent of customers account for 80 percent of revenues? That 20 percent of our time accounts for 80 percent of the work we accomplish? The 80/20 Principle shows how we can achieve much more with much less effort, time, and resources, simply by identifying and focusing our efforts on the 20 percent that really counts. Although the 80/20 principle has long influenced today's business world, author Richard Koch reveals how the principle works and shows how we can use it in a systematic and practical way to vastly increase our effectiveness, and improve our careers and our companies.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book for business people.
Reviewed in India on March 10, 2019
It gives complete applicative analysis about 80/20 principle in business and personal life. The Pareto principle from the mid 20th century applied mainly in business hence it is not new in business but this book tells us how to think and act 80/20 in every aspect of life.
The vital few i.e 20% of aspects gives 80% of results. Identify those 20% in business or personal life and increase your allocation of time and effort on those vital few by eliminating less important things.
It took me lot of effort to read and understand part one that is entirely of business applications of Pareto law in sales,inventory ,negotiation, focussing on few and right customers.
What I like the most about Richard Koch and this book is after every chapter he tells about upcoming chapter and to skip the chapter based on purpose of your reading.
If you are a business person or going to start one then you should read everything but if you doesn't belong, then you should definitely skip part one entirely to save some time and have peace of mind.
Although it has it's drawback
Not all things or actions or products which are not importantor doesn't add any value can be avoided or eliminated
