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.
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.
If you are lacking in common sense then I guess both these books could be helpful but common sense isn't something that should need to be taught and to bunch together a load of what should be instinctive 'techniques' then sell the ideas - repackaged and reworded to sound more intricate and fresh than they really are - is just insulting. Thankfully I was able to loan both books from the library so have not contributed to the lining of the author's pockets. Both books are shameful and not even worth recommending for children or even the most disorganised person!
