I received an unexpected email from Amazon.com the other day. It was a notification that a book I pre-ordered last summer (and forgot about) had shipped. The package arrived today and inside was a fresh copy of David Allen’s new book titled Making It All Work: Winning at the Game of Work and Business of Life.
This is Mr. Allen’s third book and early reviews indicate it’s a great follow-up to the hugely successful Getting Things Done book published in 2001. His second book, Ready for Anything, was basically a list of 52 productivity principals each dedicated to their own short chapter. I didn’t find it as groundbreaking as the first book but it’s still a great read.
I’m looking forward to blocking out some time in the next week and digging into the latest publication. If it’s as good as the reviews indicate I think I’m in for a treat! If you ever get a chance to see David Allen in person do it. He’s an awesome public speaker and his presentation is outstanding!
