Based upon his weekly Harvard Business Review columns (which is one of the most popular columns on HBR.com, receiving hundreds of thousands of unique page views a month), 18 MINUTES clearly shows how busy people can cut through all the daily clutter and distractions and find a way to focus on those key items which are truly the top priorities in our lives.

Bregman works from the premise that the best way to combat constant and distracting interruptions is to create productive distractions of one's own. Based upon a series of short bite-sized chapters, his approach allows us to safely navigate through the constant chatter of emails, text messages, phone calls, and endless meetings that prevent us from focusing our time on those things that are truly important to us.

Mixing first-person insights along with unique case studies, Bregman sprinkles his charming book with pathways which help guide us -- pathways that can get us on the right trail in 18 minutes or less.


  • Well done!!!

    Bergman has done an outstanding job of combining story telling and teaching a lesson in every chapter of this book. My wife is not a reader and there were a few instances where I almost forced her to listen to a chapter or two. At the en of every chapter, she would say, "that's a good chapter". Thank you for writing this book and making an impact on people's life. It a job well done!!!

    I have read many books in my life. I have followed Covey, Maxwell, Jeffery Fox, Gladwell, Zig Ziglar and many others. I can honestly say that the author has really hit home with a plethora of things I can modify in my daily life to be better at career and personal life both. Thanks Peter for a great book. Looking forward to more!!
  • Extraordinary helpful

    I have finished reading this book in the shortest time ever happened to me. It's pleasant to read as if someone is talking to you as a friends. It is not a normal business book. The author has really made complicated concepts into easy things you can implement. Especially it captures human weakness and tells you tricks to get over them. There are a lot to digest and I would definitely refer back to it from time to time.
  • Eye-opener!

    I can't think of a better way to start the year. The wisdom and counsel in 18 Minutes is built around strong relationships, focus, and discipline. There's nothing fancy here -only time tested principles that work. Bregman's stories are well told and entertaining - they will resonate with anyone living and working in the modern world. Really a great book!
