Lifehacker Book

In December, I read this blog post by Robert Scoble where he called the Lifehacker book the “”must own” book of 2007″. He also said:

From now on I’ll be able to tell if you care about being productive by asking whether you’ve read this book. If you don’t care about getting things done you won’t get it.

I certainly care about productivity (I run 22 sites… I need all the productivity I can get, lol), so when I saw that it was only $16.49 on, I picked it up. I read it during my vacation over the last few weeks. It’s a terrific book – well worth the money. I marked pages on all of the things I want to look into doing myself and I may blog about them, as well.

I have actually just subscribed to the Lifehacker blog because of the book. Kind of a funny order when you consider that it’s been around for a long time and is a very well read blog… I just hadn’t checked it out much before.

For anyone who sits at a computer a lot, whose work is on a computer, I’d totally recommend checking it out. For the price, if you find a few tips, it’s really worth it.
