The book Lifehack calls "The Bible of business and personal productivity."
"A completely revised and updated edition of the blockbuster bestseller from 'the personal productivity guru'"—Fast Company
Since it was first published almost fifteen 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.
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!
Highly Valuable, Important Advice
I agree with other reviews that a fair amount of the book is painfully repetitive, but in the end, the repetition helps hammer home the basic elements of this valuable approach to life management. I do believe that implementing these suggestions will lead to a more effective and meaningful life.
The theory is great
The theory is great but the book is more relevant for the 1990s than today. Someone should rewrite the book translating the theory into practical application using modern tools.
