Book Review: The Power of a Half Hour

The Power of a Half Hour: Take Back Your Life Thirty Minutes at a TimeThe Power of a Half Hour: Take Back Your Life Thirty Minutes at a Time by Tommy Barnett

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Practical, encouraging reminder that good things can be planned and completed in very limited amounts of time. The author's style is engaging, optimistic, and upbeat. This reader got the idea that he has far more ideas and energy than he has time to use.

I appreciated the single page summary at the end of the book content. Then there's a section of "Personal Power of a Half Hour Action Plans". These include short chapter summaries and steps to follow. I would have appreciated these coming at the end of their respective chapters instead of all at the end, but that's just personal style preference.

The book also includes a small-group study guide which can be completed in a half hour a week. These additions to the book are great resources.

The only drawback of the book for me: the author and I would not agree on several major points of doctrine. I found myself turned off by some of the name-dropping and aspects that smacked of a prosperity gospel which are sprinkled throughout.

That little disclaimer aside, I recommend this book. Don't just let your time slip away: use it purposely for good!
