  • Slow burn 🙄

    By Azteriz
    For a book on productivity, it’s a very slow burn. It goes on, and on, and on, and on... and it doesn’t seem to ever get to the action
  • Terrific methodology, even if the book itself is hard to get through

    I love the GTD methodology and highly recommend it to anyone and everyone, for use in both personal and professional environments. But boy, this book is loooong. I feel like 70% of the book is only about convincing the reader why GTD is so great, and only 30% is an actual guide to the concepts. Unless you’re a fast reader, I would recommend people just read an online summary of GTD and then read the full book later, rather than wait to finish the book before implementing the GTD system in your life. (Or you could check out the book “Getting Things Done for Teens”, which I’ve heard is significantly less dense and more practical, regardless of the reader’s age.)

    David Allen has truly changed the way I look at all of the things that come my way. This book has helped me create a second brain that has allowed me to handle EVERYTHING in my life with ease and calmness. I am truly grateful for this book and material and really hope everyone reads through it at least once.
  • Getting organized

    David Allen has written a comprehensive book on making those decisions that need to be made and asking the right questions to get it done. I am so glad I came across his book. I am now looking forward to getting organized and completing those tasks that never seem to get done.
  • Please fix the footnotes

    Removing a star until the footnotes have been fixed. It's been plenty of time to get this thing done...
  • Great Strategy and Tactics

    Read the original and am trying to apply it so the revision will help me pick up a few new tips. One problem with the iBook...the footnotes are small (like size 2 font) and off the top of the page...they're basically useless since one cannot read them easily. Issue a revision/update with modern footnoting!
