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've been listening to this book for two hours already, and I'm still waiting to get to the actual steps. It's been quite a journey, and I'm ready to move on and dive into the practical advice.
  • The narration is on point and well-organized, making it easy to grasp the methodology even when you can't read the book. However, to fully benefit from GTD, it's essential to have the printed version with all the workflow diagrams and additional content. While this audiobook is great as a supplement to the print edition, it loses some usefulness on its own.
  • I'm employed at a large healthcare provider in the East Midlands, UK. The Trust Secretary recommended this book to me four years ago in November 2012, following a training session he conducted for me and my team on a Saturday morning. He mentioned that most people wouldn't follow the GTD system, but he was willing to invest his time for those who would. Finally, during my honeymoon in September 2016, I got around to reading the first version of GTD. To my surprise and relief, I discovered that my previous attempts at becoming more organized and productive had failed not because of my lack of effort or motivation, but rather because I didn't have a reliable system for getting things done. Once I returned to work, I immediately implemented the principles from the book and experienced an instant increase in relaxation and productivity. I've also purchased the audio version of the second edition and intend to listen to it during my daily commutes until I've fully integrated the GTD system into my life. This book may have potentially saved my sanity and my career in the healthcare industry.
