Reviews

"Laura Vanderkam is one of the world's leading experts in time management and productivity. If you're feeling too busy, stressed out, or overworked, reading her insights in Off the Clock can change your life."
--Dorie Clark, author of Stand Out and adjunct professor, Duke University's Fuqua School of Business

"For every minute you spend inside this book, you'll get back ten. Off the Clock will show you how to spend your hours more meaningfully, reclaim vast amounts of wasted time, and live a better life. Picking up this book will be one of the most valuable investments you make in yourself."
--Chris Bailey, author of The Productivity Project


"Laura Vanderkam delivers a compelling and evidence-based argument that busyness is overrated in our current culture. Living a full life, at work and at home, is about doing the right things well, and confidently missing out on everything else."
--Cal Newport, author of Deep Work

"Short of discovering an additional 25th hour what makes time so different for those rare productive, unstressed people? Laura Vanderkam knows--and can teach you. If you want to do more without losing your sense of peace along the way, make time for Off the Clock."
--Jon Acuff, author of Finish and Do Over

"I recognized myself in almost every word of Laura's excellent book. And tracking my hours was an eye-opener for me, as it appears I'm one of the people who's been unrealistic about how I spend my days. This book is liberating, useful, and so important in this era in which everyone seems to feel overwhelmed."
