I don't know the print version, but the audiobook is great. It would be nice to have it printed to make notes in the pages and underline ideas, but if you hear it with a pencil in your hand it can work.
This is not a characters book. The author himself reads the book in first person.
This is my first aproach to this author, but I I would certainly buy another title written by him.
Making the best out of your time.
Very recomendable. It's not just a book, but a guide to use for the rest of your life in your professional and personal life. It really made a change in my life and I'm just starting to use the tips.
Excellent book. I was looking/needing to get organized, beyond the new file drawer system. I needed a system that I could understand, that was simple, and would work with me. The author does a great job explaining the concepts (and I did listen to it a zillion times).
Very emplowering and helpful book!
Don't forget to allow yourself time to implement (time to clean out your "stuff").
This book doesn't have any of the fluffy 'time management' rhetoric. However, if you are after useful methods that actually work, buy this book. Don't waste any more time.
Simple Idea - (but you have to get or the info - to understand the simple idea)
Sometimes hard to listen too because there is so much information but once you get it - it will change your life!!

He could have presented relevant information.
No, Your Brain at Work was excellent and took an entirely different approach. I just couldn't finish Your Brain at Work because of an Audible error.
He was very annoying
His ideas are no longer relevant for our paperless work environments.
David Allen has done a great service to busy people everywhere by writing this book. He does a comprehensive job of describing the how and why people become overwhelmed and disorganized in this day of information overload.
While his entire system of organization might not work for you, he describes many, many ways of processing and staying on top of all the things we busy people have coming at us each day.
Great read for those drowning in the sea of tasks and communication
Creating a system of organization, and committing to it. Because if your mind doesn't trust it. You will go back to storing things in your mind which is not what you want.
way better. david allen has been lecturing on this subject for years before and after writing the book. he really knows how to say it so you get it. and he's reading it to you!
just about everything in there. if you listen carefully, and avoid your own old bad habits like the plague, it's amazing when it works, it really works!
set the speed to 1.5 or 2x, you'll get things done even faster :)
Good idea, but I think that audio is not a good format for this. You need to be able to see the structure of it (and pictures). I ended up getting the eBook.
Listen, probably not.
A movie about organization? Um, no. :-)
I have spent most of my adult life trying to find the best ways to manage the very unorganized random synapse firings. I think some doctors call it Attention Deficit. I don't know about the Disorder as at least half of the professionals around me suffer the safe problem. What GTD brings a clear way to think about personal organization. These philosophies can guide you through any situation and toll set available to you.
David Allen has a follow up book called "Making It All Work" which is a great companion.
I generally am unimpressed with author read books. Authors have far better voices in the written form than they do in their native narrated form. What I appreciate about this book is that I have heard David Allen discuss these principles in interview form over the years and having his voice behind the reading just makes sense to my brain.
