Ready for Anything is a companion book to David Allen’s Getting Things Done. The book is comprised of 52 reflections/essays on various aspects of the GTD methodology. The content was okay, but I found the book rather distracting because the author found a need to seed the book with quotes with little thought to placement. Here is a great idea of how to implement — insert 1/2 page quote here — and back to my great thought. If you are into the GTD thing it may be worth the read. If not, skip it. ( )

I am stuck between a 3 and 4 star rating. The content is good, but you have to go through a lot to mine those good nuggets. Since I enjoyed Getting Things Done so much, I was expecting something more. ( )

If read through and set aside this book really has little value, but if you read through it once and then used as a reference for that you go to daily for the next few months until the GTD system becomes habit then this book is worth every penny. ( )

While I really enjoyed this follow-up, there were less take-aways to be found than expected. Great for re-vitalizing my excitement about using the GTD system, only okay for real and concrete instructions. I may find it better after I have the full GTD system in place but for now, Getting Things Done and Making It All Work are the essential titles in the series. ( )
