    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.

    Overall

    Excellent insight and food for thought. This book covers virtually everything found in Getting Things Done but from a more philosophical perspective. I think it's more difficult to implement the concepts found in this book as they're presented ... but that may just be me. It also is filled with a lot of killer quotes.

    It does cover much more than Getting Things Done so I would recommend them both.

    As a side note, this book has sort of a new-age-spiritual thing about it. It was just enough to make me uncomfortable if not a little queasy.

  • Hit Man

    Keller possesses all the qualities of a professional killer. He's cool, confident, reclusive, icy, and ruthlessly efficient. But this seasoned hit man is also prone to self-doubt as he finds himself caught in the clutches of a mid-life crisis.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Surprisingly Terrific"
    "Humorous with interesting characters"
    Overall

    As the title suggests, this book is about a hit man. Apart from his profession, Keller (the main character) is quite an enjoyable and likeable character. The book seems like a collection of short stories, and given Keller?s profession, that makes a lot of sense. I thought Hit Man was well written; humorous with interesting characters. I also thought the author did an outstanding job of keeping the descriptions of violence to a minimum. As an added bonus, the narration was EXCELLENT.

    The only downside that I saw to the book is that the character is so likeable and the violence so nondescript ? you lose some perspective about Keller?s profession and just think he?s just doing a normal job. I think this book can desensitize you in a very subtle way.

    From the author of the best selling It's Not the Big That Eat the Small, It's the Fast That Eat the Slow comes a vital new guide to increasing business productivity without adding employees or other overhead costs.

    Mathieu says: "Got some great tips"
    "Liked it"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the approach of this book. Started off a little slow but then offered some fantastic ideas about how to be productive; things I feel I can focus on such as "the single big idea," "what's the good business reason" and minimized bureaucracy. I thought this was great stuff.

    Best selling author David Baldacci brings all his brilliant character-building skills to bear in Wish You Well, a literary coming-of-age tale set in Baldacci's native Virginia. Publishers Weekly calls it "his best novel yet...an utterly captivating drama" that offers "bone-deep emotional truth."

    Carol L. Riegel says: "Excellent Book"

    Overall

    What an enjoyable listen - except for those 4 or so times I felt like crying my eyes out. I couldn't help being reminded of To Kill a Mocking Bird - but without the tears :)

    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.

    Rick says: "Getting Things Done"
    "Step by step"
    Overall

    Excellent book - excellent tool. This book differs from Ready for Anything in that it is very detailed in its instruction on mind dumping to a "trusted source" and managing "next actions" (really cool concepts). Getting Things Done is less conceptual in it's approach and more how-to - very tactical. I think it can really empower someone to act ... it just will take some time to become an expert in practice.
