Easy listening, great to listen to the main points of the GTD system.
Allen knows the material and reads it in a way that is accessible while driving and listening.
I've read the book and the audio version helps reinforce the points. Allen's reading is on-the-mark. Easy to listen to and absorb. It's like having him explain it to you.
I started implementing some suggestions from the book and I noticed immediate results. My desk is cleaner, my task list is at my finger tips, my emails are organized, and consequently I think clearer. I've always been able to take advantage of small time segments, but this book has helped me sort it out. Thanks to my friend for the recommendation!
This book helped me know what to do next of my 100+ in my to-do list!
Insightful, effective, enjoyable
The principles and techniques taught were very effective in changing the way I take care of tasks/projects. Nothing was novel or gimmicky.
I always like hearing it from the horse's mouth.
No way. The book is 7 + hours long, and I needed time to digest and apply principles and techniques along the way.
This isn't a system where you have to listen to the whole book to get started. I was able to start applying parts of the system, and immediately benefiting from them, between listens.
since it's a dry topic, I was hoping it could be a little funnier
what ending? Nothing special.
I couldn't wait for it to end - although I will employ many of his suggestions.
I found this book drew out on overly specific systems for the first 3/5's of the book. Wasn't concise, and not overly useful. However, it was well read, and the author is clearly an intelligent man.
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!!
