    This engrossing piece of undercover reportage has been a fixture on the New York Times best seller list since its publication. With nearly a million copies in print, Nickel and Dimed is a modern classic that deftly portrays the plight of America's working-class poor.

    Overall

    the way cleaning services work. Gross.
    On a more serious note, I find the whining she does, while sometimes overdone, is evidence of the lack of respect and empathy given the working class poor. She is whining about the very things that many working class people have to deal with. We should hear someone doing it since we don't listen to the poor. She enumerates the indignities and pettiness that can happen in these low-paying and low-rent areas of life.

    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.

    Overall

    The old adage about fool me once shame on me, fool me twice... only I purchased this one and Ready for Anything at the same time, not realizing the abridged versions would be so unsatisfactory. The narrations are fine and all but the whole experience is missing.
    Skip it.

    Discover David Allen's powerful productivity principles and vastly increase your ability to work better, not harder - every day. He asks listeners what's holding them back and shows how all of us can be "ready for anything" - with a clear mind, a clear deck, and clear intentions. This is the perfect audiobook for anyone wanting to work and live at his or her very best.

    Jeff says: "Good follow-up to"
    "Abridgements...."
    Overall

    Tiresome and a cheat in this case. The dead tree is so far superiour that I went ahead and purchased it as the audiofile is just not enough. You barely feel you've had your apetizer when Mr. Audible is hoping you've had an enjoyable listen. David Allen's book is worth the entire experience.
