British journalist Oliver Burkeman's latest audio is more a contemplative essay than a work of time management advice. The opening sections move slowly, holding attention because of the relaxed elegance of his speaking voice rather than anything he's talking about. But listeners will soon become absorbed with his insight that we worry too much about the roughly 4,000 weeks of time we're given--how much we achieve, the value of our activities, and the way our past performance and future ambitions pressure us. The philosophical tone of his delivery is perfect for his thoughtful message: We can enjoy life more if we appreciate the present moment, stay in touch with our deeper selves, and nurture our connections with people and the natural world.
