Product description


The 80/20 principle is the cornerstone of results-based living. Read this book and use it. - Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Workweek

Time management is not about organising your daily tasks, it is about organising your essential daily tasks, and dumping the rest. Koch has made millions from this - a bestseller based on just one idea - proving that it works. - GQ's 25 Best Business Books

Congratulations! The 80/20 Principle is terrific. - Al Ries, bestselling author of Focus and Positioning

There are ideas in here that could change your life. - The Good Book Guide

Koch is a passionate 80/20er. Read this and you will be too. - Andrew Campbell, Ashridge Strategic Management Centre

Both astute and entertaining, this is an intriguing book to help people concentrate on not wasting their lives. - Professor Theodore Zeldin, St Anthony's College, Oxford

We give this Dali-esque masterwork 5 stars... a beautiful collage of well-written prose... the book is worth many times its price. - The Weston Review

Through multiple examples, and a punchy down-to-earth commentary, Koch offers the first really useful advice we've seen in a management book for years. - Business Age
