Tony Hsieh (CEO/Zappos)Getting Things Done by David Allen. He recently spoke at our Zappos all-hands meeting and gave me a signed copy of his book.
Eric Rose (Chairman/Columbia University Department of Surgery)When I'm flat-out stressed about the volume and complexity of my work, I open this book and find immediate ways to gain a sense of control. That's really a critical need for decision making. David made me what I am today: headstrong and proud of it.
Joline Godfrey (CEO/Independent Means)A true skeptic of most management fixes, I have to say David's program is a winner!
Carola Endicott (Director of Quality REsources/New England Medical Center)Warning: Reading Getting Things Done can be hazardous to your old habits of procrastination. David Allen's approach is refreshingly simple and intuitive. He provides the systems, tools, and tips to achieve profound results.
Scott Keyes (Co-Founder/Scott's Cheap Flights)Business-wise, Getting Things Done. Big believer in the David Allen method.
Lewis Smith (Entrepreneur & Developer/BodyTracker)"Getting Things Done" by David Allen really changed my whole attitude to managing myself and all the stuff I have going on. It's not the best written book, but the concepts in it were revolutionary to me and meant I went from feeling stressed all the time about work, to much calmer with much less stuff in my head.

Since it was first published almost 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.
