    Upon listening to this audio book, I have put to work a single in-basket that has uncluttered my life. Now, I know what I need to do and where every unfinished item is listed. My workday seems much more in my control.

    Anyone who has trouble focusing on projects for any length of time would benefit from David Allen's suggestions.

    Thirty years ago, the best-selling "letter to the government", Work in America, was published to national acclaim, including front-page coverage in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post. It sounded an alarm about worker dissatisfaction and the effects on the nation as a whole.

    This audio book is so well written that it is difficult to put down!
    The authors include history, current events, and discuss predicted future changes in society and how it will impact the workplace. It is very informative, well paced, and interesting. I plan to listen to it more than once.

    It's the ultimate road trip. Legendary investor Jim Rogers and his fiancee travel to 116 countries in a custom-built, four-wheel-drive, bright yellow Mercedes. Over three years, they make their way through war zones, are guarded by military convoys, observe a 50-million-person pilgrimage, eat disgusting food, put the car on barges for transport between countries, and have their lives threatened at every turn.

    Overall

    I have recommended this book to all my friends. I found the details about all the counties to be fastenating--not at all boring. You just get caught up in the fast pace of the travel and the challenges they face.

    I also support the author's point of view on our "helping" other countries. I have found that our "help" doesn't get to those in which it was intended. I've seen the American resentment the author saw in some of the people of the countries I have visited.

    A must listen.

    Fresh! We need to listen to these two young professionals. Their book has really gotten me thinking--things are changing and we need to modify some of our old ways.
