Another superb book
on 1 March 2006
David Allen has written another superb book on a subject everyone could make better use of. This book gives guidelines on how to improve ones overall method of dealing with life on a day-to-day basis. It does not preach to the reader about what must and must not happen. It does however give relevant examples that most people will be able to identify with. David explains how most people tend to deal with these situations and why this increases stress. He then demonstrates why his recommendation can add to an organised work method and thus relieve stress.
David has a wonderful writing style that is easy to read. His use of the English language coupled with his clear examples makes this book a joy to pick up.
This book is much broader in content than "Getting Things Done". I would recommend reading "Getting Things Done" if your life is one big mass of confusion, contradiction and generally not moving in one direction. "Ready for Anything" is a secondary phase to give more direction to all aspects of your life. All in all I enjoy reading David Allen's books. The information in them is invaluable and should be adopted by everyone. I will be keeping my copies and making regular reference to them.
