    From the author of the million-copy best seller Getting Things Done, comes a new title that will change your life.

    Story

    Let me lead by saying that Getting Things Done completely transformed my life. I've used it's principles heavily over the last two years and have accomplished so much I never thought possible.

    Making it All Work, on the other hand, simply rehashes much of Getting Things Done. It also spends quite a bit of time talking about how wonderful GTD is. After reading it I cannot point to a single new principle I will adopt or use.

    Do yourself a favor and read Getting Things Done. If you have already read it you might consider re-reading it over purchasing this book.

    Set in the far, far future, Steel Traveler Of Urth is a wild combination of The Good, The Bad And The Ugly (the sunburned landscape, the characters who take it for granted that everybody's out to cheat and/or kill everyone else as they vie for treasure)and The Road Warrior (the hard-to-kill hero has suffered so many losses, he's trying to be as big a bastard as everyone else, but he keeps being tripped up by his own innate decency).

    Story

    Had I read the eBook I probably would have given the story three stars. Enjoyable, but not one of those books that you'll read again and again. It's a fun post-apocalytic romp, filled with familiar tropes. You won't find any huge surprises in the story, but what you will find are good execution and memorable characters.

    I had a hard time with the bewildering array of races and the strange time keeping system at first, but by the end came to understand them and found they added to the story.

    So why did I rate this five stars if I'm describing a 3 star story? Because the audiobook is beyond amazing. It contains a full cast, special effects and even a professional singer delivering an absolutely haunting melody in chapter 18. I burned through this audiobook, and am still just blown away by the quality. It's very much like the radio dramas of yore, something we rarely see anymore.
