I have owned a copy of GTD forever. The old edition. With a younger looking David Allen on the cover. And when I looked at my Reading Challenge categories I thought this book would be the perfect one to hit the category for "a book at the bottom of your to-read list."
Yes. I have owned a copy of this book for years, but I wasn't overly enthused about reading a methodology about being more productive in a full-length non-fiction book. It just didn't nudge itself out to the edge of my shelf asking to be read like so many science-fiction books do.
Since I read The Accidental Creative earlier this year and that process was painless, I decided to stick with my plan and tackle another productivity book. And then I saw that David Allen published this newer, updated version, so I placed my library hold and waited.
The wait was worth it, for the most part.
