That being said, if you haven’t listened to David Allen’s GTD podcast, or read his newsletters, the information in this book might be interesting. Worth the read but not groundbreaking.
But "Getting Things Done" can be a very rocky read because Allen combines an explanation of his philosophy with a method for clearing the clutter from your mind.
"Ready For Anything," on the other hand, eschews the methodology and focuses instead on the philosophy. In 52 short chapters, Allen lays out his thinking about time-management, stress and productivity. In each of these short chapters Allen expounds on his philosophy. It is much easier to digest in this form than it is in "Getting Things Done."
Allen's basic thoughts aren't new or novel. If you're confused about what needs to be done, than what needs to be done won't get done. It's that simple. But Allen brings together basic principles in a new, easily understood way.
I see both books -- and frequent references to them -- as necessary and helpful. Allen's reputation is well justified and "Ready For Anything" is proof of it.
