Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the timeIn the book, Bennett addressed the large and growing number of white-collar workers that had accumulated since the advent of the Industrial Revolution. In their opinion, these workers work eight hours a day, 40 hours a week, in jobs they did not enjoy and, in the worst case, hated. They worked for a living, but their daily existence consisted of waking up, preparing for work, working as little as possible during the work day, going home, relaxing, going to sleep and repeating the process the next day. In short, I didn't think they were really living. Bennett addressed this problem by urging these "employees" to take advantage of their extra time and use it to improve.You can find extra time at the beginning of the day, when you wake up early and on the way to work, on the way home from work, in the afternoon hours and especially on weekends. During this time, he prescribed improvement measures, such as reading good literature, being interested in the arts, reflecting on life and learning self-discipline.Bennett wrote that time is the most precious commodity. He said that many books have been written on how to live with a certain amount of money each day. He added that the old adage "time is money" underestimates the matter, since time can often produce money, but money cannot produce more time. Time is extremely limited, and Bennett urged others to make the most of the time remaining in their lives.

Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to "difficult, yet commonly used" words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in Chinese Traditional, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English, and avoid using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not translated on a page, chances are that it has been translated on a previous page.
