Real-life, practical solutions
He's no James Earl Jones, but gets the job done.
"Moved" is the wrong word, it's not that kind of book. It is however crucial information for those wanting help in the organization department. If you've ever arrived at your office and asked yourself, "what am I going to do today?" You NEED this book.
If they were a nerd about these things like me I would. So many good ideas and thoughts in this book.
There is nothing else equal to it :)
I like his voice, a good voice on an audio book is so important to wether I buy it or not. I like then when he is talking in the first person its really him so it has more meaning.
'Why are you watching this movie... go a get things done!'
This book is a favourite and I go back to it all the time, I love that you can jump into any part of it and get really good ideas and inspiring thoughts. Seriously having my own business which I run from home - this book changed my life!
Sorry but this was a totally un-engaging book for me!
Yes - just not very interesting.
Laid out a plan with getting things done. Even though it may be four or five years behind in using the now available technology, it sets the foundation. We this book and "Evernote"
a program I had been trying to use for all while. Now I'm on the right path. I went back and setup Evernote using David Allen processes, and Wow, now I'm on my way to Getting Things Done.
I teach nursing at The Ohio State University College of Nursing, Columbus, Ohio.
This is probably third in my list after the Bible and Stephen Covey!
There is a PDF to go along with it.
Very easy voice to listen to.
Determining the "Why" of what I do each day.
This book is full of practical advice for your everyday work. Even though some of the techniques described in this book are outdated (as new technology is available in most of our work places), I'm applying many of the tips learned from this book in my daily routine and I really think this made me more effective. I will probably listen to the book again at some point in order to see if there are more things that I can work into my working habits.
This is a very scripted procedural process audio book. Its best used to follow a hard copy of the author's example.
The examples are relevant and current. The ideas and methods presented are current and worthy to follow in order to keep on top of day to day and long term projects. However, as an audio book it is very 'dry' to listen to - hard to get engaged in the process.
Thorough, methodical and sequential.
No - very dry material.
Best to have a hard copy of the book to look at and go over when listening. Not something to take on a long drive.
This started out as a "must do" chore, but after getting some momentum I really got excited about sorting things out. I will listen to this book again soon. There was too much to get in pass for me. I would recommend it to anyone who knows they need to tighten the loose ends on the desk and feeling just a little out of control.
Yes, but not the audiobook. This is not material to listen to while doing anything else.
Not if he was reading it. Sorry David, you've got a great system and it does wonders for me, but as a teacher you're a great author!
No characters, and David is a very, very flat-voiced reader.
Actually it complements one another. I use the digital version as well as the audio.
His tone and the way he reads this adds meaning to what is written.
