Get this done!

What made the experience of listening to Getting Things Done With Work-Life Balance the most enjoyable?

I have been a fan of the GTD principle for some time, I have read several books, both by David Allen and other authors. I admit to being a follower, so may be a little biased. But as someone who balance law and medicine along with a busy life in general GTD is perfect. If you are knew to it, or want more information, what is better than hearing it from the horses mouth!!

What other book might you compare Getting Things Done With Work-Life Balance to, and why?

There are other books by David Allen, so I could compare it to them, but thats probably not what this question is after. GTD, to me, is a fundamentally different process to most other organisational philosophies out there. However it is essentially a self help/organisation book, so its format is similar to most of those.

Have you listened to any of David Allen’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have listen to his other audio work and interviews, this one is such as logical and well structured. It covers everything you need to implement GTD.

Not the "Getting Things Done" you were looking for

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This is a simple re-hashing of the key points from the original Getting Things Done book, with a very limited scope, and a series of 'principles' added onto the end. These principles are vague and general, providing limited value.I would have appreciated a deal more original content (rather than just rewriting the 5 steps from GTD), and more focus on work-life balance, and how GTD applies to this (which isn't covered in any real depth at any point throughout this book).

What will your next listen be?

Getting Things Done, the original version (unfortunately there doesn't seem to be an audiobook version of the new edition, at the time of writing).

What does David Allen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

It's always great to have the author reading their own book, as there is more personality conveyed in the reading, and emphasis is placed where it was originally expected.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was disappointed at how thin the content in this book is.
