5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book 23 Oct 1999
Ive been using this book for over 5 years now and its a constant source of inspiration. The management ideas are brief and easily implemented. It is an excellent book for those who are new to management and need ideas for 'Getting things done!'

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting Things Done 6 Jun 2010
This book has been with me in one format or another for 20 years, and brought down from the shelf at times something is not getting done!
Anyone can find advice quickly from its sequential indexing style.
And no advice takes more than 2 pages - most just one.
It identifies your problem in a way you will recognise, and then immediately addresses what to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars For all procrastinators! 24 Aug 2012
By CarriKP
This book really is brilliant. The advice on each page is short, sharp and right to the point. For anyone who tends to put things off, and that surely means most of us at some time or another, the solution is within these pages. This book really can help you achieve your goals. Buy it for yourself and improve your success rate - or maybe give it to someone you know who often needs a kick up the proverbial!

4.0 out of 5 stars User friendly 14 Oct 2011
Although not the sharpest and most cutting edge book available, this book makes a great secondhand buy. It is well structured and very mind map like in the way that the mini chapters have great layout and visual appeal. This will appeal to somebody who perhaps struggles to read a book all the way through. It can be read in any order and is good for maybe a thought per day. It starts with a guide to how to use the book and jumbles the chapters so that if you feel you let yourself down sometimes then read 49. Feel you lack time to plan read 17 (ironically the longest chapter in the book at a mighty six pages). The book offer sound bite-size advice without sounding like one man's opinion or psycho babble. The book deals with 3 key areas if read sequentially. Your time. Knowing, motivating and improving yourself (the biggest section) and dealing with others. A great introduction to moving forward in your life in a quick and easy format.

5.0 out of 5 stars getting things done made easy by Roger Black's Getting th... 22 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on
This is such a simple and easy approach; allowing one to either work at getting things done with the step by step method described in this very motivating book OR by simply jumping to the section which will be of immediate benefit to one. Page layout is simple but effective which is very necessary when one has little time. Simply glance and then act. No long, unnecessary sentences with endless of storytelling - just the essential. To me it is a treasure alleviating the traffic jam in my life. Formerly, I would not have had the time to write this review.

By M. Usman Chughtai - Published on
I really found this book helpful in changing my life style, and taking the things in different and with professional approach.
It really help us to consider a lot of things which are really fruitful for success in every field of life but we don't consider them usually.
I would like to say thanks to Mr Roger Black.
