    The Dalai Lama, at his most compassionate and outspoken, here elaborates and deepens his vision for the nonreligious way. Transcending the mere "religion wars", he outlines a system of secular ethics that gives tolerant respect to religion, those that ground ethics in a belief in God and an afterlife, and those that understand good actions as leading to better states of existence in future lives. And yet, with the highest level of spiritual and intellectual authority, the Dalai Lama makes a claim for what he calls a third way.

    I recommend it only for people without a bussines background. The book is pretty basic.

    From core principles to proven tricks, Getting Things Done has the potential to transform the way you work - and the way you experience work. At any level of implementation, David Allen's entertaining and thought-provoking advice shows you how to pick up the pace without wearing yourself down.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Getting Things Done to be better than the print version?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is not a characters book. The author himself reads the book in first person.


    Have you listened to any of David Allen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first aproach to this author, but I I would certainly buy another title written by him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Making the best out of your time.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
