Doesn't have the core structure of the system.

I enjoyed the synopsis but purchased this to get a quick reference for the system and structure of GTD. Well done but not what I was looking for.

Missing important content about actions to take

The original book sets out particular actions to get organized. This summary is merely about the theory. Not enough.
