There are some good tips in here and some of them inspired me to get organized to a degree that I've not been in some time.
There are also many cool web apps covered though I imagine this will mean that the book will not age particularly well. As someone who works in IT and reads Lifehacker regularly, a lot of the contents were familiar territory so I ended up skipping a lot, but I think someone who's less technical might benefit quite a bit from this book.
My main objection is that a lot of th There are some good tips in here and some of them inspired me to get organized to a degree that I've not been in some time. My main objection is that a lot of the tips are computer-based and only focus on Windows and occasionally Mac, with little coverage of Linux. Admittedly Linux is a tiny fraction of the audience, but Lifehacker's coverage of Linux topics is pretty good, so I was hoping for a bit more of this in the book.
Overall I think it's a solid, practical book for people who want their lives to be a bit easier, and are willing to put in a bit of effort. Would make a good gift. Aug 12, Tori Miller rated it liked it Shelves: kindle. I was only interested in a few of these personally. I couldn't view the table of contents on the Kindle in a way that I could see enough of it to see which of the tips I might want to read.
It was very time consuming to page through all the other tips to see which ones I was interested in. I wish the table of contents had a better view. View 2 comments.
Mar 04, Daphne rated it liked it Shelves: nonfiction. This book is full of tips to improve your life. If you read Lifehacker the blog on a regular basis, you might expect a lot of variety.
However, most of the book is dedicated specifically to "tech tips". I felt disappointed by that. I guess I think of "life hacking" as a larger endeavor than just "use your computer more efficiently".
But is that the book's fault, or mine? It's a book worth looking at. View 1 comment. Apr 23, Heart1lly rated it it was amazing. I enjoy having this book on my nightstand as a reference for whenever something goes a little awry in my techno life. I enjoy not having to help him every single time he messes something up at least five times a day so I make him check this book first to see if the answer might be in there.
Gooooood stuff. May 19, Jellie Dawn rated it liked it Shelves: skimmed-unfinished , nonfiction , informative , books-read-in Love the website. The book? Not so much. It's focused more on tech tips and I thought I could glean additional information, but I guess I know more about technology than I think I do. Jun 23, The Idle Woman rated it really liked it.
By far the most useful of several productivity books I've purchased recently. I don't buy these books to join the author on their 'journey' or to hear about how they set up a multi-million-dollar business at university. I need practical, straightforward, clever advice aimed at an educated layman with a standard set of tools, and that's exactly what this volume offers.
Divided up into eleven chapters, it focuses on computer shortcuts, software, tricks and hacks that can help you keep your inbox c By far the most useful of several productivity books I've purchased recently. Divided up into eleven chapters, it focuses on computer shortcuts, software, tricks and hacks that can help you keep your inbox clear, fight distraction, and make yourself more productive on a day-to-day basis. The authors Pash and Trapani are virtually self-effacing: this is a manual, not a life philosophy, and it's the kind of thing you can dip into for bright ideas.
I've only received it today and already I've implemented a couple of hacks. Whether they'll help to make me more efficient, who knows? All in all, it's a productivity bible. So why only four stars? Well, this is the third edition, published in Many of the hacks are still applicable LastPass and Evernote, for example , but some have been superseded or are no longer current e. I hope the authors might bring out a fourth edition at some point, but I'll be keeping my eye on the Lifehacker website for more up-to-date tips.
Really pleased with this. Dec 26, David Rosen rated it it was amazing. You'll Save at Least an Hour a Day. At odd moments, I've thought about going through all its articles in one day and creating a grand reading list. I recommend the print version. It's easier to flip through than the Kindle and you feel more of a sense of accomplishment hacking through its forrest of pages.
Sep 05, Mimi Marissa Catania Bishop rated it liked it. Clear and concise -- even though this was a bit more techy for what I wanted it for productivity tips I still got a few things out of it. I read the third edition -- so I think much was outdated. A fun reference book for its time, but hasn't aged well given the steady march of technology. One would think I am the perfect target market for this book: I am an efficiency addict, so much so that my wife calls me "Captain Efficiency".
I am constantly updating my systems in search of the elusive goal of ever-increasing productivity. And of course I follow the Lifehacker. Alas, the Lifehacker Guide mostly served as an opportunity for me to hone my speed-reading and skimming skills Frequently I found I am already using the same recommended programs e. I still don't see what's so special about Dropbox. Perhaps some of this is because of the overlap between the blog authors' favorite tools and tricks and those which were shaken down into this "how-to" book.

This is one in a series of interviews of notable bloggers in the Zen Habits Golden Goals series. Adam Pash is a freelance writer and budding programmer and web developer based in Los Angeles, California. Though his interests are varied, Adam spends the majority of his time working as Senior Editor for Lifehacker , a weblog with a focus on software, the internet, and productivity. I previously interviewed Gina Trapani of Lifehacker, and I was excited to get Adam to do the interview as well. This January, Gina Trapani and I, both big fans of simple scripts and software, decided to start programming our own stuff, and Lifehacker Code was born. My personal favorite of the bunch is Texter , a full-featured text replacement application.
