I'm retired and shouldn't need these books but wished I'd found them earlier they have transformed my life. If you are unsure download a sample on Kindle and you won't look back.
First off I wish I hadn't bought it and then I wish I hadn't been stupid enough to keep on reading when, after the first few longwinded and confusing pages, I had already decided it was a waste of time. I had heard glowing reports about Dave Allen's "method" so felt there had to be some wisdom to be gleaned from the book. I was so wrong. Don't buy it, google for the summary and flowcharts instead. Or work it out for yourself.
It does take some serious effort to implement the system properly but it is worth it. If you don not want to invest the time you can simply apply some of the tricks with minimal effort and get significant benefits. One such rule is 2 minute rule ie If a task comes to you and it takes less than 2 minutes do it immediately, otherwise add it to a list. It is common sense, as is most of what is in the book but very few of us apply these principles.
If you want to get more out of life this book is a must.
There seem to be typos, the formatting is VERY poor e.g. bullet lists where the bullets don't line up with the lists!
The main workflow diagram is so small you cannot read it, the whole book is based around that so it is pretty critical.
5 stars for the book, but only 3 for the kindle version. Still useful as a reference to carry on kindle, but I would get the print copy. I feel ripped off actually.
This book has helped me become ultra organised. The main idea in the book is to get everything bothering you on to paper. However there are some fantastic fundamentals like 'contexts' and the 'weekly review' amongst other things.
He repeats himself so many times, it actually gets EXTREMELY boring, like when someone gives you advice ten times in a row!!! This stopped me getting to the end of the book and instead I have got a third of the way through and learned from GTD websites online.
I guess he was under pressure to write a whole book in order to make some money (fair enough). However in a better world this book would have been edited down to a third of the size.
I still give it five starts though as it has revolutionised my life! If you are a geek then use Evernote to implement GTD! It is amazing (not perfect but amazing).
