What would have made Getting Things Done better?

If it's more to the point. He rambles on and on.

What could David Allen have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Make it more clear. Stop talking about how awesome and important this book is. I went through the first 3 hours and couldn't stand it anymore.

What didn’t you like about David Allen’s performance?

I had to speed it up, but it was a bunch of rambling anyway that was hard to follow as a book.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

nothing new. Anger and frustration. I was really looking forward to hearing this book but it may be better if i can browse through it at the bookstore.
