  • This book is wonderful. Instead of offering new tips on how to cram more into your day, it questions why we feel the need to ... My favourite kind of book is this one ... it examines the human struggle with intelligence, wisdom, humour and humility. Yes, there are suggestions of ways we might do things a bit differently, but underlying those suggestions is the radical idea that we're already doing just fine

    Marianne Power, The Times
  • Perfectly pitched somewhere between practical self-help book and philosophical quest ... as with all the best quests, its many pleasures don't require a fast-forward button, but happen along the way

    Tim Adams, Observer
  • Life is finite. You don't have to fit everything in. Enjoy your life. Breathe out. Read this book and wake up to a new way of thinking and living

    Emma Gannon, author of The Multi-Hyphen Method
  • A wonderfully honest book, Four Thousand Weeks is a much-needed reality check on our culture's crazy assumptions around work, productivity and living a meaningful life

    Mark Manson, bestselling author of Everything is F*cked and The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
  • His book will challenge and amuse you. And it may even spur you on to change your life. At the very least reading it would be a good use of one of your four thousand weeks

    Robbie Smith, Evening Standard
  • I loved this book - it's a celebration of all that is most human: a deep dive into the value and potency of our finitude. Where we might buckle under pressure and uncertainty, Oliver quietly restores our centre of gravity within. You'll emerge from his writing fortified by wonder

    Derren Brown
  • A beautiful, uplifting read. Reading Oliver Burkeman, I feel my shoulders relax and my mouth curl into a smile of admiration. Witty, modest and refreshingly sane

    Robert Webb, author of How Not to Be a Boy
  • Comforting, fascinating, engaging, inspiring and USEFUL, actually genuinely useful

    Marian Keyes
  • Oliver Burkeman provides an important and insightful reassessment of productivity. The drive to get more done can become an excuse to avoid figuring out what we actually want to accomplish. Only by confronting this latter question can we unlock a calmer, more meaningful, more resilient approach to organizing our time

    Cal Newport, bestselling author of A World Without Email and Deep Work
  • We all know our time is limited. What we don't know - but what Oliver Burkeman is here to teach us - is that our control over that time is also limited. This profound (and often hilarious) book will prompt you to rethink your worship of efficiency, reject the cult of busyness, and reconfigure your life around what truly matters

    Daniel H. Pink, author of When, Drive, and To Sell is Human
