Summary

Since it was first published almost 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 summary but sound quality sucks. Get the original it's under three hours. Much better value

Annoying Narrative

The narrator says "quote" and "unquote" frequently to the point that it is distracting and annoying. Returning the summary for the actual book.

Oviously this is the work of someone else and it is a summary. It is not copyright or plagiarism to not say "quote unquote" every time you quote an idea. Horrible.

Do it! This is How

Narration: Clear. Not particularly inspirational but good enough.

Content: Solid overview of book's structure and recommendations. Make sense. Most of us have heard these guidelines before, but occasional review serves as useful reminders and prompts.
