The Power of Full Engagement provides a life-changing roadmap to becoming more fully engaged on and off the job.
I listened to this book, and more importantly, I tried implementing the principles taught. After only a week I find that I have much more energy, especially when I get home. This has directly affected my attitudes and relationships for the better. I'm listening to it for the fourth time now. But remember this is one of those annoying books where you actually have to take action after you've read it, or it won't do you any good :>)

I bought this title because it was on the bestseller list and sounded like a good buy. However, after struggling through it I have to say it's poor at best. The book is sold on the strength of the authors' reputation as developers of the "corporate athlete" program. Unfortunately the narration comes across as trite, and self-promotional.
To me, the book seems to lack real depth of insight or compassion into the real issues facing readers in crisis -- except to see them as sell-through opportunities for other programs and products.
As an alternative to The Power of Full Engagement I would highly recommend The Breakout Principle and The Power of Now, two less commercial and more authentic works.

Very practical advice! Helps put in practice all the things that we would like to do. Books from Covey, etc. tell you what to do. This book tells you how to do it. That's the beauty of this book compared to the rest.

Some truth in all of the other reviews. All books on productivity share some ideas, theories and principles. The Power of Full Engagement offers a different perspective on some of those ideas.... If you've been exposed to the principles that enhance physical fitness, specifically, repeated stress followed by time for recovery, this title will make sense! The authors introduce how this same principle could/should be applied to other aspects of our lives.

The power of Full engagement is for you. It really helps to recognize the value of replenishing our souls and ourselves in order to bring out our best. We tend to overlook the role that this plays. Loehr/Schwartz not only emphasizes this, but really gives pointers on how to manage your life so that you can optimize your energies, producing even better results than you would see from just working harder. I had heard about this book for a few years before I actually read it. I am sorry that it took me so long to getting around to reading it. It was a powerful book, and will continue to be in my re-read list in the future.

This was a terrific book. Initially, I thought it would be another business, time-management, how-to bore, but far from it. The authors' provide a full-spectrum guide on how to maximize physical, mental and spiritual energy--rather than just squeezing out more minutes in the day. The case studies were varied and allowed listeners to see their issues manifested to one degree or another. I was also impressed with the authors' sense of empathy for the sorry state of our unfulfilled lives. Rather than just professional self-development, this should be taught in public schools to help create better citizens.

This book is based on the important truth that energy management is much less important than time management. However, it tries to cover so many areas that it fails to deliver on any of them.
The language of this book has been completely infiltrated with corporate buzzwords that many potentially profound thoughts are clouded. Words like "Personal Inventory," "Spiritual Alignment," "Value Statement" remind me of much of the meaningless double-speak found in the corporate world today.
If you're interested in managing your physical energy, read "Body for Life." If you're interesed in improving you're emotional energy read any of Tony Robbins books. If you're interested in renewing yourself spiritually, comb the great leaders of your tradition. On the other hand, if you truly value your time, skip this book.

Would you try another book from Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz and/or Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz ?
What was most disappointing about Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz ’s story?
There are few tools that the author provides to manage one's energy other than sleep, exercise and take breaks. Most of the stories are about why managing energy is important. I got this book to get solutions but found none.
Would you be willing to try another one of Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz ’s performances?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Power of Full Engagement?
I would change the title of the book to "Chicken Soup for Full Engagement" because it is full of stories but no solutions.
Any additional comments?
Tony Robbins is so much better in providing comprehensive solutions. I wish I never got this audible.

Gave me very real, helpful ways I can increase energy and help improve how I think and act. Provided me with habits that have changed my life.

This book is the worse i have read. Its all about self promoting and the authors don't appear to be sincere. It seems like they don't come to the point but instead talk around the problem. I was very dissappointed.

Are you trying to get more out of your day? This book is for you. I have read quite a lot of books in this genre and this is one of my favorites. Don't expect rocket science. Basically the book opens your eyes to the simple things that can be used as a lever to achieve the more complex.
Well structured, information dense, hands on, great narrator, quick read, worth a re-read.

Was genau hätte man an The Power of Full Engagement noch verbessern können?
I like the book itself, but the audiobook is just ridiculous.
They cut out most of the book.
But the worst part is:
The headlines don't get read!
Neither sub headlines(there are many), nor chapter headlines
It's just continuous talking without breaks. So as a listener you have no idea what the authors are talking about right know.
This means all you get out of it are 4 hours of storys about Roger B. or Susan S. and how these people changed their lives with some advice sprinkled in. But most of the time you don't have the context.
I hope not too many people listened to the therefore rather boring audiobook and thought that this is it.
Because the book itself is well worth reading.
Welche Szenen dieses Hörbuchs hätten Sie als Regisseur gestrichen?
I already mentioned, that you can't leave out the headlines in a how-to-book.
But all in all there were too many chapters cut out from the original book.
And of course the key takeaways and worksheets are not included.

Many stories of their clients. it's less about energy, but more about personal development and rituals. That's why not exactly what i expected, so 4 points
There are no Chapters and it is very difficult to set them by oneself because the reader does not read the headings. Even with the table of contents in front of you it is difficult to maintain an overview.
