ABOUT THE BOOK

This book, part of a larger work entitled How to Live, offers practical advice on how one might live (as opposed to just existing) within the confines of 24 hours a day. Addressing the large and growing number of white-collar workers who put in eight hours a day, 40 hours a week, at jobs they did not enjoy, and at worst hated, it urges them to seize their extra time, and make the most of it to improve themselves. Extra time could be found at the beginning of the day, by waking up early, and on the ride to work, on the way home from work, in the evening hours, and especially during the weekends. It also prescribes improvement measures such as reading great literature, taking an interest in the arts, reflecting on life, and learning self-discipline.
