A good read

I enjoyed listening to this, although certain points aren't applicable to me right now (kids) I often worry that with my job in finance and my ungodly hours how I would manage with kids.

Laura V. made some interesting points that has changed my perspective on how I think about time.

Disappointing

Lots of fluff, lots of unnecessary and irrelevant statistics; lack of practical hints or advice. Disappointing listen; would not buy it again.

A motivating read

I enjoyed listening to Laura's narration and got quite a lot out of it. I was hoping to hear more practical examples but came away inspired to make the most of my time knowing I can achieve more than I previously thought.

Now I know how to do it too.

If you could sum up I Know How She Does It in three words, what would they be?

It makes sense

Any additional comments?

This made me think about how I spend my time and how I might consider my time going forward. I got a lot out of this book.

A different perspective

Love the time management tips but the best bit is the different perspective on time management and the reminder to make time for fun. Favourite quote - You don't make a life by saving time, you make a life and then the time saves itself.
