As someone whos long believed that David Allen represents this generations Stephen Covey/Dale Carnegie/(name-your-favorite-business-coach), it came as little surprise to me that two of the most promising forthcoming business titles have passages about his influence. A Perfect Mess: The Hidden Benefits of Disorder, which is somewhat of a cross between Blink and Getting Things Done (with a touch of Im Dysfunctional, Youre Dysfunctional thrown in), makes a provocative argument about the drawbacks of the productivity gurus hyper-popular system. This book, written by David Freedman (full disclosureI have worked with Dave and confess to calling him a friend) and Eric Abrahamson, is my favorite of all the galleys in my office.
