We receive many questions about the electronic and international versions of David Allen’s books (Getting Things Done, Ready For Anything, and Making It All Work.) We’ve compiled some FAQs on the topic that should be be helpful. We will update this post as the information changes and add these to our website FAQs as well.
What formats are available for David Allen’s books, like Getting Things Done?
Formats for David Allen’s books are established entirely by his publisher, Penguin Group, and through the agreements Penguin makes with each foreign publisher. We are so sorry, but we have no influence over distribution and we are not involved in the process of determining where the books are released.

This is not the case at all for other countries and download versions in particular are restricted by territory (e.g. someone outside the U.S. cannot download a book from the U.S. Audible.com site.)
