Description

David Allen reads an all-new edition of his popular self-help classic for managing work-life balance in the 21st century - now updated for the new challenges facing individuals and organizations in today's rapidly changing world.

Since it was first published more than 15 years ago, David Allen's Getting Things Done has become one of the most influential business books of its era and the ultimate book on personal organization. "GTD" is now shorthand for an entire way of approaching professional and personal tasks and has spawned an entire culture of websites, organizational tools, seminars, and offshoots.

Allen has rewritten the book from start to finish, tweaking his classic text with important perspectives on the new workplace and adding material that will make the book fresh and relevant for years to come. This new edition of Getting Things Done will be welcomed not only by its hundreds of thousands of existing fans but also by a whole new generation eager to adopt its proven principles.

Good methodology, but the book is very repetitive.

I did help me change many things in my day to day working structure and organization, but the author keeps on repeating things that we already understood, it has too many examples and lists of things that becomes extremely boring at times. there is a whole chapter that just keeps on listing things that need to be organized, one by one, very boring, but the methodology is really great! I think the author should think of publishing a shorter version that goes to the point, quality vs quantity

Grows on you

Subtly brilliant. Life changing! It's very interesting how he speaks in broad principles for hours on end, and as a listener, you fill in the specifics of your own planning challenges, and the end result is you come up with all sorts of solutions to your problems. Highly recommended!!

Excellent Book

I think this was one of the best audiobooks I have ever listen to.

There is a lot to take in, but even if a few suggestions from it are implemented it will make a world of difference in terms of organization in business and in a persons personal life.

I highly recommend it.

Life changing

The technique and suggestion mentioned in this book is simply life changing! The only downside is that the content of this book may be best viewed in printed medium, but the performance is as good as it gets. When the author himself perform, you can feel the difference. Highly recommend for everyone with a busy life!

This method helped me to clear my mind and obtain piece. Upon applying technique I instantly become more productive, and had less things on my mind. After following for few weeks I was able start seenig that my tasks are not serving purpose that I'd like. This is the only methodology/technique that works. I've tried maiy other time management/list prioritization tools methods but this is the ultimate !!! still have to master is better but very pleased with results so far

About 90% too long

This book was recommended by a co-worker and I was very excited about its first couple of chapters. The premise for the idea is solid. The author, unfortunately, instead of trying to save reader's time, goes off on a very lengthy and excessively detailed description of each small detail in his system with a million examples. This book could have fit in a 30-minute slide show. Instead, it's a 10+ hour listen. One would be better off reading a summary or reading somebody else's digest of the book.

so many info but so few to take

this book is boring !
the only good advice that I took from it was : you have to write down the next task in a "action to make" in order to motivate you to do it. That's it, you can trash everything else.

Worthy Upgrade - Worth Your Time

This new audio edition of Getting Things Done advances the practice of GTD and covers a slightly updated process as we have embraced new technology along with reinforcing the tenets of the GTD methodology that have been proven-out by research conducted over the years since the first edition was released.

This Audible edition will inspire new students to embrace the practice of GTD and will re-energize current practitioners that might need a shot in the arm.

As with the first edition of Getting Things Done, hearing David Allen explain GTD will inspire you to jump into GTD with both feet. His narration comes from the heart which only makes the "story" better.

Solid production only adds to a wonderful listening experience. Highly recommended!

OMG! I genuinely believe this will change my life!

I'm a 36 yr old woman who has ADHD and has suffered much stress, anxiety & shame from a severely disorganised adult life; rarely planning ahead more than a month or so. And while realize this is not a cure-all, I have more hope than ever before that I can get a handle on tasks, projects and life goals. Thank you so much!

Ignore Reviews Claiming "No New Material"

I'm at a loss for why anyone would claim this book is the same as original. Unless a person doesn't read it in its entirety or is hoping for a new quick fix that varied greatly from the original program, this book is a new life changer all is own. David Allen addresses most all of the "holes" that one might have found in the first writing. He gives a much more extensive, detailed explanation of the 5 steps of GTD, their benefits, new best practices for each, scientific reasoning and common pitfalls. Lastly, he's not the same person he was 15 years ago and explains things in a more understandable and organized manner in this edition. This is not a rewrite done to keep an publisher with new material. This is one of the most well thought our rewrites I've ever read. If you are a GTDer, or a constantly restarting want to be, lol, like I was for years, this book will bring new life to your efforts to have a mind like water.

Please have someone else narrate!!

What did you like best about Getting Things Done? What did you like least?

GTD comes highly recommended by some of my favorite productivity youtube channels and blogs. I got the physical copy on Amazon but with little time sit down and read, I decided to get the audio book so I can listen on my long drive to work. Unfortunately David Allen's narration is more dry and bland than a piece of overcooked and unseasoned chicken. His voice is droll and made it difficult to pay attention, despite the interesting concept. I had also just finished Stephen Covey's "7 Habits" book, and his voice and narration style is much easier to listen to and digest. I think I would rather just make the time to read the book than waste another minute listening to it. Maybe if he didn't narrate the book it would be worth the credit, but as is, skip the audio book and get the paperback.

Repetitive

I did not listen to the shorter version of the book but there isn't much content here. I am certain that all of the primary points are in the 3 hour version of the audiobook.

In this version, the author cites his love for the use of paper with his system numerous times. He always caveats computer usage like it is inferior and foreign to him. I have finished over 100 audiobooks (mostly nonfiction) and I could not finish this book even after putting it on 2x. He simply repeats himself too much.

I will be requesting a refund.

Solid method, but sometimes hard to follow

Solid method, Hard to follow sometimes due to the author's style. (Why stop at one descriptive noun when you can tack on a couple more adjectives!),

Absolute must read! Or hear in this case!

This book has changed my life since I first read it but hearing this new version has revealed new meaning and content that was not clear up to now. The fact the author himself reads it is an advantage because the right emphasis is given to the most important topics. If you need to get some focus and get closer to mind like water hear this!

Inbox Zero Achieved

I first read GTD many years ago and implemented some of the principles. As I am looking to step up my productivity, I decided to grab the updated audio version.

The second time through is already proving successful as I was able to get my email inbox to zero (from 8k) and have next actions assigned to all projects. With each accomplishment, I gain more fuel to drive me further within the GTD program.

My only complaint is that the audio book was a bit dull at times, and hard to get through. As a returning GTD believer, I knew it was worth pushing through, but more real world stories or implementations (similar to what is on the GTD podcast) would make it easier to get through the book.

Complaint aside, I believe if I get one great takeaway from a book it was worth it, and GTD delivers many more.

Lots of rambling. Hard to follow as an audiobook

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.

Follow up to "Willpower"

I read "Willpower" a while back, and though the information was very fun to learn, I had difficulty applying it to the real world. For example, I read that the most successful people don't necessarily have extraordinary willpower, they just organize their day around the idea that it is finite. Good deal...how do they do that? This book is a perfect companion to what seems like useless knowledge--filling in all the blanks and leaving you with a great sense of clarity.
Wish I'd discovered it sooner, but it sounded gimmicky when I heard about it years ago. Better late than never!
