Based on the time management strategies in
The Time Bandit Solution

“The most precious commodity we have is time. Whoever said you can’t get more of it hasn’t met Edward Brown. In The Time Bandit Solution, he tells us how to recover and redeem stolen time. What will you do with it?”

Tavis Smiley, Broadcaster, Author, and Philanthropist

“A different type of time management guide. It’s not about the useful tips and tricks for multitasking or time consolidation, but rather focuses on practical strategies to deal with ‘time bandits.’ ... Highly recommended as a resource for obtaining more time in one’s personal as well as professional life!”

Midwest Book Review

“This should be the productivity bible of the entertainment industry. It incorporates outstanding ideas and real truths. It’s a great read and needs to be read by everybody now. 5 out of 5 stars.”

Chris Bearde, Creator of the Gong Show
