    By the man who helped invent the red-hot management process known as "Scrum", Scrum unveils what is wrong with the way we currently do work, and how a simple set of principles, applied in exactly the right sequence, can accelerate productivity and quality as much as 1200 percent. Scrum (which gets its name from the formation in rugby in which the whole team locks its arms to gain control of the ball) is the reason that Amazon can launch a new feature on its website every day.

    Story

    The book follows its own description of most products: 80% of the usefulness is in 20% of the features. This book is 80% or more fluff and the author patting himself on the back. The most useful 45 seconds in this book is the quote from Teddy Roosevelt's "Man in the Arena" passage from his "Citizenship in a Republic" speech. Save yourself a buck and lots of time and Google the passage. The reader is related to the author and has great enthusiasm, but the content is shallow.

    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.
