I found Bobos to be eye opening about upper class culture, and refreshing to listen to. Yes, I sometimes got lost in the constant sense of irony and sarcasm that Brooks carries in his voice. But it was funny! I'm normally not into social science. And while I wouldn't exactly call this "science," it did deliver a lot of information that would have been rather dry to choke down some other way. But with Brooks' style, I laughed and learned. It's like edutainment.
Not only does Allen discuss the practical techniques of getting things done, he discusses the psychological underpinnings of the guilt that comes from breaking so many subtle, perhaps unconscious, commitments to oneself when things aren't done. Getting Things Done is as therapeutic as it is productivity enhancing. Changed my life. Ask my wife :-)
