This book provides some decent reminders of the "Getting Things Done" concepts, which I earnestly like. However, the presentation on this audio edition is not easy to follow. I felt like I was playing 52 card pickup where the author's ideas were like a bunch of cards scattered on the flour (i.e., some of the ideas were interesting, many were not, but what was lacking was any real sense of flow or continuity). Further, David Allen's voice and presentation leave something to be desired. I think this program could have benefited from a professional actor/speakers delivery.
This talk is brilliant. Succinct and spoken from a core of wisdom that is well honed and deeply enlightening. I've listened to this talk three times in the last week and have felt like I was awakened anew each time. I look forward to hearing more from this master teacher.
This book is excellent in many respects but first a comment about the author's delivery, which other reviewers have made into the issue about this book. It's true. The delivery takes some getting used to. Also, the book starts out a bit slow. It takes time to get to the parts that are actually useful. But, it does provides some very deep insights, in relatively simple terms and what I prize most about her account is that she's realistic and also self-deprecating. If you are looking for ways to understand anxiety and fear and other mind states that can be quite debilitating, this is an excellent resource and the author's perspective provides a sense of understanding that in and of itself can be healing. Excellent book, warts and all.
