Richard Koch is the author of thirteen books including the international bestseller, The 80/20 Principle—which was named one of GQ's Top 25 Business Books of the Twentieth Century. Formerly a consultant with The Boston Consulting Group and a partner with Bain & Company, Koch is now a self-described lazy entrepreneur whose ventures have included consulting, personal organizers (Filofax), hotels (Zoffany), restaurants, and premium gin. He lives The 80/20 Way in London, Cape Town, South Africa, and the sunniest part of southern Spain. For more information, visit his website at www.the8020principle.com

I've also applied a few of the tips offered in 27 Quick Life Transformation Tips. This book has been a boon for my productivity and my overall success. If you want to be a success in business and in your relationships, then you can find quality advice here. Using both of these books, I have been able to start my own business and achieve success in my industry. I've also been able to follow the 27 Quick Life Transformation Tips to enhance my personal relationships with friends and family. My health has been improved and I'm happier than I've been in a long, long time. All it really takes is a little bit of simplification and following these easy to understand guidelines to really turn your life around.
Because I've followed principles in both of these books, I've been able to finally realize the "Work Smarter, Not Harder" adage. I have practically eliminated my worries and my life is filled with successes day after day. I now focus on the things that are most important to me--close family and friends, my important work issues, and my health. Everything else is a non-essential factor in my day-to-day life and I've realized I don't need to expend much energy worrying about it.
I will be revisiting the book frequently and following the recommendations. I hope you will do the same.
20 percent of the book was 80 percent of the information.
What I found missing was a lack of concentrated focus on any one of those areas. I found myself skimming over the stories looking for the meat, but I was left wanting for more. The most thorough section is on personal finances and if you don't have control of yours, reading this and following his advice, and George Clason's "Richest Man In Babylon" will be a big help to you.
However, if you already grasp the 80/20 principal, read Ruiz's "The Four Agreements" to master relationships with others and yourself, Clason's "Richest Man In Babylon" to master your finances and Google "the Pomodoro technique" to learn how to master time management. Don't get me wrong. This is a good book. I just didn't find that it added much to my understanding or ability to apply 80/20. If you've never experienced 80/20, you should get and read it, because it will change your life.
