Product description

In the ten years since its first publication, The 80/20 Principle has become a business classic and a global bestseller. The special anniversary edition of this original, provocative and practical book contains an entirely new chapter in which Richard Koch discusses the many hundreds of responses he has received from readers of the book - including a rap song! - and outlines a fresh understanding of the true power of the principle. And it is powerful: the 80/20 principle - the counter-intuitive yet prevalent fact that 80% of results flow from 20% of causes - is the one true principle of highly effective people and organisations and has stood the test of time. Many thousands of people throughout the world have found the principle useful at work, in their careers and in their personal lives. Koch outlines how with the 80/20 Principle we can achieve much more with much less effort, time and resources simply by concentrating on the all-important 20% thus controlling events instead of being controlled by them, and with several times the results.

Review quote

'The 80/20 principle is the cornerstone of results-based living. Read this book and use it.' -Tim Ferriss, author of 'The 4-Hour Workweek' 'Time management is not about organising your daily tasks, it is about organising your essential daily tasks, and dumping the rest. Koch has made millions from this - a bestseller based on just one idea - proving that it works.' -GQ's 25 Best Business Books 'Congratulations! The 80/20 Principle is terrific.' -Al Ries, bestselling author of 'Focus and Positioning' 'There are ideas in here that could change your life.' -The Good Book Guide 'Koch is a passionate 80/20er. Read this and you will be too.' -Andrew Campbell, Ashridge Strategic Management Centre 'Both astute and entertaining, this is an intriguing book to help people concentrate on not wasting their lives.' -Professor Theodore Zeldin, St Anthony's College, Oxford 'We give this Dali-esque masterwork 5 stars... a beautiful collage of well-written prose... the book is worth many times its price.' -The Weston Review, Tampa Bay, Florida 'Through multiple examples, and a punchy down-to-earth commentary, Koch offers the first really useful advice we've seen in a management book for years.' -Business Age
