    "Good summary of some other books"
    What made the experience of listening to To-Do List Makeover the most enjoyable?

    It's well read, you can easily understand what the narrator is saying


    What other book might you compare To-Do List Makeover to and why?

    Getting things done is similar, but it goes more into details.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The MIT section


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Making to do lists is convenient and can help you organize your life in a more effective and productive way


    Any additional comments?

    It's a good summary of other books about personal organization. Overall I prefer David Allen's aproach on Getting Things Done, but I really liked that this summary was brief and simple.
