    This book was supposedly a brand new edition for 2015 but it reads like it was written for a previous century There is so much emphasis on hard copy documentation, memos and letters that it just doesn t fit with how work or life is conducted in the modern world For example you are strongly advised to buy a label printer so you can stick labels on all your files Our files are in the cloud these days Where are we suppose to stick these printed labels There are some good ideas here but it s hard to relate them to modernity Its like reading Jane Austin for tips on using Tinder.If you are a historian researching productivity methods of bygone eras then this would be a good purchase for you.

    I desperately wanted to love this book I had heard about GTD from several places, and I thought Yep, this is ME I think the principles behind this book are so valuable and could help a lot people if it weren t surrounded in such WAFFLE Seriously, this is the sort of stuff I lap up usually, but I couldn t get into this Like others have said, it needs paring down a lot for it to be something the masses could get on board with Shame really.

    Highly recommended for busy people who want to flow whilst working instead of feeling overwhelmed.The book is heavy going though, I bought it in paperback, Kindle and upgraded the Kindle to audio too so that I could read it quickly.An email workflow infographic would have been handy, I m likely to create these for myself so that I can embed the theories quicker.I also wanted to annotate both the Kindle and paper versions so that they d make better reference materials.

    Some very basic ideas spread out over 300 repetitive pages For example, did you know that you might need an in tray Wow For very good reason the conclusion is just two pages Really, don t bother, unless you have absolutely no clue whatsoever about how to organise yourself and your desk.

    This book has been a hard slog to finish as lots of the examples don t fit with my job I felt the book could have been half the size if it didn t have unnecessary quotes and examples I m enjoying getting things done.
