An essential complement to GTD?

Did you know that there was a follow-up to Getting Things Done (the book)? I was reading an article1 on the GTD method – trying to find more useful info like the one described in the previous post – when I saw this:

David Allen has published a follow-up to his bestseller ‘Getting Things Done.’ In ‘Making it all Work’, he puts GTD principles into a broader context and explains why control and perspective are the two most important self-management principles.

Seemingly, David Allen’s book Making It All Work: Winning at the Game of Work and Business of Life (2003), in addition to the notion of perspective, provides important clarifications on the GTD method. The purpose of this book indeed is not to provide a new organization method, but rather to get deeper into it and explain how it can be applied to all situations.

In the highly anticipated sequel Making It All Work, Allen unlocks the full power of his methods across the entire span of life and work. While Getting Things Done functioned as an essential tool kit, Making It All Work is an invaluable road map, providing both bearings to help you determine where you are in life and directions on how to get to where you want to go.Penguin Publishing Group

“Could this book2 help me answer my questions on how to implement David Allen’s method?”

Bonus gift for the Holidays, a kitsch video promoting the book:
