I listened to this book on CD, then borrowed the book from the library, and then bought the book as a reference. I would highly recommend it to any entrepreneur or individual who feels they spend too much time working
Our work culture is built on the assumption that we function like computers, in a linear fashion. It just so happens that we are humans, and we function rhythmically, in an oscillatory fashion. Sleep, good nutrition, regular exercise, a healthy emotional life and a strong sense of purpose are essential factors for our performance and general well-being. When they are lacking we are underperforming, no matter how good our technical skills are (and we are leading a dangerously unidimensional life...).
In order to correct our dysfunctional habits, we need to diagnose them and then establish positive rituals which, in time (30 to 60 days), should engrain new, healthy and more productive habits. For me, I found that I needed more sleep, more exercise and more time to do non work-related activities, such as reading, writing and watching movies/documentaries. To unlearn old habits is not easy, and it takes a lot of willpower! But the results - in terms of performance and quality of life - should be well worth it...
The central thesis of the book is this: that your energy is a limited resource. How you handle your day depletes or adds to your energy supply.
After taking heed of the book's advice and implementing its suggestions, my energy levels shot up. It took a little while, but eating at regular short intervals of low-glycemic food, exercising regularly, and using habits to entrench these changes into my lifestyle brought me a significant increase in energy and happiness.
But there's a big warning. DON'T BUY THIS BOOK IF YOU AREN'T GOING TO DO ANYTHING. You might as well go buy another copy of "Who Moved My Cheese" or the "Purpose Driven Life" and try to extract meaning from those. This book is a workbook that provides you the tools on how to increase your energy levels, it's not a panacea and will not work for anyone unwilling to invest the effort.
