    I can't say it was terrible, but it wasn't always on point and the information was either obvious or weird. It was not what I was expecting.

Bryan Cohen brought out a clean book of how to cope up with one’s short term and long term goals with ease and tactical moves. The book is divided into 16 broad chapters under which all the one hundred tips have been enumerated in simple English with mention of all those great co-authors who have influenced him to a great extent in reaching his goals. The collection of tips is quite useful for people of all ages. One can unleash the potential within if all the tips are judiciously followed. It is observed that some of the tips are quite common ones which many of us already follow but there are many which can be readily and easily adopted if one has the will to do it. The tips necessarily need not be taken only for starting a business but also can be imbibed into one’s daily routine of activities to stay fit and rolling in whatever they are doing right now, irrespective of their geographical location across the globe. This book surely gives one a lot of motivation to read other books of the author in subjects of writing skills, comedy, blogging and self help

    Really good and uplifting! My 2015 is gonna be full of more books like this. New changes, new possibilities, reinforced thinking! Totally recommend.

    Easy quick read, it certainly had some very good tips and reminders, but most were common sense and things we have read before elsewhere. Being free on kindle, I didn't regret reading it in the slightest. In fact, it's a good resource to refer back to if ever you need a pick-me-up and a wake up call to get working on your creative projects!

    I have never read a book that worse about this subject ! It seems more like a brainstorming not a book! Also the tips do not includes the practical part! Think that the people that have read the 7 habits of high effective people will understand my opinion. The author said in his book that he have wrote a lot of book like 1 every month ! Probably that’s why the quality is very low.

    I am so far one quarter of the way through the book, and I want to stop. This book would be great for people who don't know how to work, are floundering in self-doubt, or for people that have no common sense. Sure, doubters take hold, but otherwise you should be reading the subtitle as: 100 ways to be boring, start arguments with loved ones because you are suddenly physically and emotionally unavailable, and maybe you'll have some extra time and energy on the side...If you're lucky.

    This is one of the most boring books I have ever read. Yes, it did offer some good advice, but 90% of the stuff were cliches. I only read the titles of these 100 ways because the details were too dull. All in all, this is a rather simple and helpful book, but too boring for my taste, and it offered no new knowledge to me in particular, though i'm sure it has helped many people with less self-improvement knowledge.

    The book has 100 tips to be productive, whether you're starting a business or writing a book/blog or trying to groom yourself for your career. The tips are mostly common sense and things we've already read elsewhere. It includes not just time management, but health related points too. I'm giving it 3 stars because I'd like to think of it as a checklist I can browse once a few months. True rating: 2.5

    What a scam! What a scam! this book has absolutely nothing to do with the title of the book. The Author gives you 105 pieces of crappy advice that have nothing to do with starting a business. For example: eat a cold breakfast, it can save you 5 minutes! Wake up without pressing the snooze button! What?!

    The worst book I have read in a long time. The book didn't tell me anything that I haven't either research or was told before. All 100 tips were good ones but basically out there in so many forms. I'm glad I didn't pay for this book.

It’s life learning curve, we all get through it. Book is short, and I didn’t spend much time reading it. And I believe that when you get through summary, you’ll be able to understand everything – it’s not briefly explained, but rather just short paragraphs- I gave this book two stars because I was expecting different kind of information – these information I already know. In my opinion, these kind of information would be helpful for some just starting out to learn more, and they are looking for basic advice’s; and they don’t have much experience. Maybe if I’ve read this book six-seven years ago, I would find it much interesting and helpful. And that’s about it.

    What a promising title but let down after a few pages already. A lot of the times I felt t like the writing was getting off the track and wondering about something else but not what it was supposed to. Like, why do we need to read about eating habits? 'Replace two daily snacks or side with a fruit and a vegetable' or 'Replace butter, salt and oil with spices' etc. How will this help me to start my project/business? Or have a take away, and the casually say it's ok not to have it if you can't aff What a promising title but let down after a few pages already.

Is it a project or your main job that pays all your bills? This is such a bad example of 'good' behaviour. I could go on.. but it's not worth my time.. this is just to give you an idea. Most of the content was just common sense most people do daily anyways and those who don't probably won't even pick this book up.

    Great ideas, but could've used more examples by different creators. The idea are great, but the book is only half of a program, the other online half costs more money, which wasn't mentioned in the title. And the ideas are good, but could've been discussed more in depth, and used more examples by different artists, with ideas on what does work, and what doesn't, without such a large time expenditure anticipated for the remainder of the course, which isn't included with the price of the book.

    This is a pretty decent list of ways to find a little more time in your day. Not every thing will work for every person, but it can't hurt to go through the list and try. It's rather short... ~55 pages, but since it is on kindle and everything are bite sized chunks, it might not be too bad to get through. I read it in less than an hour and that included taking a few notes. However I do not agree about one of the aspects which is 20% doing, 80% marketing. That only works if you are self publishin This is a pretty decent list of ways to find a little more time in your day.

    It has some good ideas but most were things that I've read other places and some where just down right terrible advice for my life because I have tried them before and they didn't work or backfired. Also the author seems to push some ideas like they should work for everybody which I find kind of condescending.

    It was alright She gave a lot of advice some good and some average. Then at the end there was a link to a course to for a how to just like the book. I feel like the real information is in that course.

    Nice quick read I skimmed through it since it contains plenty common advice that I have read in other self help books but I still obtained some valuable advice from this book that I will try to apply to my life.

    How to Work for Yourself: 100 Ways to Make the Time, Energy and Priorities to Start a Business, Book or Blog by Bryan Cohen is a great example of marketing and choosing the right title and cover design to sell a book.

I have to admit that I, like many I suspect, mainly caught the bold first part of the title, grabbed my attention above the rest and spurred my impulse to read this book. But the writing kept me reading, even after I soon realized that the book would contain little to no information on how to work for yourself. Some might complain that this book is nothing more than a 55 page advertisement for another product by the author with little advice that is not simply common sense. I too had this first impression, but as I continued to read I began to appreciate this book more and more. Sure, most of the tips are common sense, but let’s face it, common sense isn’t so common anymore. Furthermore, no matter how many times I thought, “this is just common sense,” or “I could have thought of that,” the answer to the question of did I think of it, or even if I ever did, am I doing it, is either no or yes, and it does help. This book does what the rest of the title says, offers suggestions to increase time, energy and priorities, in a quick reading (every chapter can be read in 5 minutes or less), well written manner. Does it give detailed instructions on these tips? For the most part, no. It’s more of a quick reference guide. But it tells where and how to get more information if the reader desires it, while giving enough in the book to implement most of the tips right away. Sure there are tips that just say you need to market your product without telling how to market. But seriously you can’t expect a textbook on marketing from a 55 page book. The stress on marketing makes it clear to the reader who may have dreams of writing without having really thought about how much of being a writer is being a salesmen that it takes a lot more than putting words on paper. Is this a masterpiece with everything you need to know to start your own business or write a book? Absolutely not. I doubt that could be done in 500 pages, much less something that can easily be read in a couple of hours or less. It’s full of some good, yes, common sense, advice that could improve life for anyone regardless of profession or ambitions. It is well written and definitely worth a buck. I fully intend to reread this book and make note of suggestions I plan to implement immediately. Yes, the reader will need to do additional research, but this book made me want to do that research and gave some ideas on what to read.There are plenty of “self-help” books that I’ve read that are 4 to 5 times as thick and 10 times the cost that I’ve gotten less from.

This sounds lovely but if you can afford to look at your emails only once or twice a day then you are clearly not busy enough to need the advice. Further it is a terrible suggestion to lose your online social networks that you have presumably spent time building because then you won't be able to use them to crowd source funding or market your product for free (two further suggestions later in the book). The entire book is self contradictory and full of absolute rubbish. At one point the advice appeared to literally be that if you wanted to save half hour make your wife do the ironing. Well it might well have saved him half an hour but I think he was fairly lucky to avoid a slap. He is an unconvincing author with seemingly little to tell. It is almost as if he rushed out this small self-help book to go along with his course (heresy I hear you cry), worse he probably adds this to his total amount of books wrote (which he repeatedly reminds us of throughout). He writes very well to his target market, which presumably totals him and possibly his put upon wife. Remember "love as a verb".

    Not quite what I was expecting. Most of the advice provided is common sense - if you want more time in your day, watch less TV, go to sleep and don't just lay there, wake up a bit earlier, eat breakfasts that don't require you to cook a gourmet meal. Also, outsource as much of your day as you possibly can, whether by getting loved ones to do your chores for you, or hiring a professional.

I wish I had noticed ahead of time that this wasn't so much a book as it was a pamphlet, though. The book kept stopping every couple of chapters to remind you that the author has 30 books he's published, and that you can get a discount on the author's course if you follow the link that the book provides. It got obnoxious after the third time the book stopped to remind me of those facts.
