History’s greatest leaders understood the importance of time management. Master the Moment by Pat Brans is the best book I have ever read on the subject.

Pat Brans gives us a tool for self discovery - to find what we do best and where we fall short with Father Time. Looking through the eyes of the world’s highest achievers, this book will guide you to see yourself at the head of the boardroom (or of your family) and provide you tips on how to live a fuller life.

Pat Brans' style--anecdotal and practical--makes Master The Moment a true pleasure to read. Beyond entertaining and insightful, it is full of stories that are both useful and inspirational. The examples demonstrate that the people who accomplish remarkable things in business are not those with the most "natural talent", but rather those who are most willing to evolve and improve. Time management is a learned skill, and we can all learn from this book.
