Amazingly precious and written for the very tightly wound todo-list making individual. The level of detail that he goes into on how to make a template project for leaving the house, for example, borders on the absurd. But. He makes good points on how to setup tasks like this in order to get yourself out of a rut of deciding how to go about accomplishing a daunting project. The book goes into a somewhat therapeutic angle towards the end with regards to how to maximize your time on earth to do wha ...more

This book has been pretty massive for me.

I bought OmniFocus over a year ago and struggled with it based on David Sparks' excellent screencasts [Link]. For some reason, it just never integrated its way into my life, other than to give me weekly reminders to put the kids' pocket money into their piggy banks.

I know that I need something in my life to help me deal with my stuff, and I knew that OmniFocus was more than capable of doing that. I just found it so overwhelming!

I listened to the author

Good but grossly overpriced.

Some good ideas and interesting takes on organizing with GTD and OmniFocus. Makes you think about how to better utilize your system.

With some editing improvements, I'd give it four stars. Would benefit from a wider variety of examples; "Make chocolate chip cookies" does not cover it for many of the situations. Writing needs rewording in many spots. Rewrite and find clearer way to present the "Core" principles. Cut out all the white space; it's not really anywhere near 500+ pages. For this price

An amazing guide to how to use OmniFocus. Perfect for after you have read David Allen's 'Getting Things Done' and would like to apply those methods in a sound way.

This book introduces you to the application, and slowly builds up your abilities until you feel comfortable and ready to 'create flow'. Through use of some very clever perspectives, the author imbues the reader with master level skills and relates it all to everyday life. His background as a psychiatrist really proves useful in how he

This is one of those books that changes your life. It certainly changed mine. It took me so long to read it because you have to keep putting it down to implement each of the teachings of the author. It's very practical advice. It's like having a personal teacher help you learn OmniFocus.

You will finish this book feeling like a master of OmniFocus.

Until the next version comes out that is. Then we'll both be reading the 3rd edition of this book!

Recommends it for: anyone who owns Omnifocus or is thinking of buying it
Whew, this took a while to finish up (highly technical) but was well worth the investment. OmniFocus is an amazing piece of software, and had made task management a real afterthought in my life. I feel much more free and less scatter-brained. Dini does a good job explaining the software, as it's quite clear he is an expert at it. Thanks Kourosh, you're a pretty cool dude.

After being an OmniFocus user for like...a million years, it's probably about time that I taught Kourash Dini a few things about using OmniFocus.

I'm no black belt, but I am fairly comfortable with OmniFocus and GTD. I still found some very useful techniques I will incorporate into daily use.

I love the idea of using omnifocus properly but the reality is that I will never take the time to do it. Lots of overhead.

If you use OmniFocus and follow the GTD methodology you must read this book. Period.
