Book Notes: "How to Live on 24 Hours a Day: with The Human Machine" by Arnold Bennett

How to Live on 24 Hours a Day: with The Human Machine (Dover Empower Your Life)How to Live on 24 Hours a Day: with The Human Machine by Arnold Bennett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book shows some signs of age in its racist and sexist (gendered) language, but if we can accept the less-developed aspects of the times and focus on what is good, this book (or more accurately, books) will give the reader an immediate benefit if one is only willing to give Arnold Bennett's methods a try. This self-help book pre-dates Dale Carnegie by a few years. If one were to sum-up Bennett hastily, I would say he was England's Dale Carnegie. Bennett received criticism from the likes of Virginia Woolf for his novels, but after one reading and implementing two of his ideas, I am hooked.
