David Allen reads an all-new edition of his popular self-help classic for managing work-life balance in the twenty-first century—now updated for the new challenges facing individuals and organizations in today’s rapidly changing world.

Since it was first published more than 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.

    " I didn't actually finish this, but I think it helped me get some things done. Unfortunately, one of those things was not finishing this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick | 2/16/2014

    " I'd heard about GTD and I expected a lot from this book. However I thought it was a bit too basic when I started reading it, but as I progressed though it, there were several nuggets that made it a worthwhile read. The concept of "next Action Steps" is a powerful one which I have now adopted "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Landry | 1/31/2014

    " if you want to learn how to get things done. This is the right place. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 1/18/2014

    " This is a fantastic book. I tried to read paperback but had to listen to the audio. There is so much information in this book but a fantastic system. I have converted! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sean | 1/5/2014

    " Detailed description of a system for getting everything on your many to-do lists done effectively. Talks about capturing absolutely everything in a single system that you can rely on, freeing up your mind to focus on whatever task you're currently engaged in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ville | 12/26/2013

    " Life changing experience. One needs to live by it, to experience it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy | 12/21/2013

    " The only self-help/time-management book that is worth anything. Not just for getting things done; but for having half of a brain that is sane. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 12/21/2013

    " Decent book...not a lot of new ideas in this one, but implementation of the ideas would help change the way we do things. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 12/5/2013

    " An excellent system for making sure things get done. Anyone who aspires to be a high-capacity person would do well to implement a system like this. My only complaint about the book is that it's a little laborious. He addresses every minute little detail, which makes the book very long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 11/6/2013

    " A should-read book on how to be productive in your job as your manage your career. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 10/14/2013

    " This book is really helping me be more productive. I haven't even implemented it yet, but it's already working. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 9/1/2013

    " To say that this book "changed my life" would be an inaccurate statement. This book didn't change my life. I changed my life. However I never would have been able to change my life without David Allen's tools to teach me how... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lana | 8/13/2013

    " Howard Stern (yes, I know) mentioned this book and kinda raved about it. I am enjoying it. Has a manageable and realistic system that I like. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Manoj | 5/22/2013

    " Highly recommended. David Allen has revolutionized productivity. His concept of "Do It, Defer It, Delegate It, or Delete It" has got my inbox to 0. However this book is much more than that. It is about putting perspective on the work and life. Read it TODAY !!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 5/20/2013

    " One of the most practical useful books I have ever read. Not easy to implement. Really requires a concerted effort to apply these principles. The little I've applied so far have been extremely beneficial. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 12/20/2012

    " This book is GREAT in it's ideas, but longer than it needed to be with much redundancy. It's a skimmer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nic | 12/7/2012

    " This book has really helped me re-organise my personal workflow to good effect. I had literally given up on email before, now I reliably see everything again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clea | 10/31/2012

    " Really inspiring. A fair chunk of it was aimed purely towards corporate types and thus not very relevant or interesting, but whole chunks of it have already proven to be super useful to me. Overall it has helped my Adulting a hell of a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yamir | 9/28/2012

    " I have two separate ratings for this book. 4 stars for the content. 3 stars for the length. This book should be at least 100 pages shorter. "
