3.0 von 5 Sternen Neuauflage lohnt nicht, Inhalt staubt langsam an 24. Juni 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Als Betreiber eines thematisch mit dem Lifehacker in den USA verwandeten Blogs habe ich mir natürlich sofort die Neuauflage des Buches besorgt. Denn schließlich wird ja eine gründliche Überarbeitung und neue Inhalte versprochen. Da haben die Autoren oder der Verlag werbewirksam aber den Mund etwas zu voll genommen.

Tatsächlich gibt es einen einzigen neuen thematisch Bereich: Der Umgang mit Smartphones, wobei hier in erster Linie das unvermeidliche iPhone im Fokus steht. Der überwiegende Rest des Buches ist aber mit den vorherigen Auflagen identisch. Wer also die zweite Auflage im Bücherschrank stehen hat, spart sich besser die Anschaffung. Denn die wenigen URLs von Angeboten, die sich geändert haben oder nicht mehr verfügbar sind, können Sie auch mit Google schnell selbst finden.

Wer das Buch noch nicht kennt, wird sich anhand der vorherigen Rezensionen informieren können. Geboten werden zahlreiche, durchaus nützliche Tipps, wie sich die Arbeit am Computer erleichtern lässt, um produktiver zu arbeiten und das Gerät eher als Werkzeug zu sehen. Dabei setzen die Autoren stark in unbekümmerter amerikanischer Mentalität auf Cloud-Computing. So gibt es zahllose Tipps, die sich rund um Google Mail oder Flickr ranken. Neben diesen nützlichen Denkanstößen finden Sie aber auch Anleitungen, die mehr für Geeks und Fortgeschrittene Anwender sind. Dazu gehört etwa der Aufbau eines eigenen Internet-Tunnels, um den Rechner daheim zu erreichen oder eine Aufgabenliste in reiner Textform, die aber dann mit einem Programm verwaltet wird, das der einfache Nutzer auf der Kommandozeile kaum bedienen kann.

Schauen Sie am besten vor der Anschaffung einmal auf den Seiten des Blogs vorbei, um sich darüber zu informieren, ob die Themen und Anleitungen Ihren Geschmack treffen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hacking Your Way To Productive 30. Juni 2011
Von Bradley Bevers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I will admit to being a sucker for books like this. I love books that offer ways to improve your time management, limit interruptions, and streamline your life. Lifehacker helps you do all that and more. It is the most practical book I have read on this subject, and I promise that it will improve the way you work.

There are a ton of "theory" books out there. Books that will tell you to spend your time more productively, not visit certain site, and get rid of all the extra emails. All great advice, but it can be hard for you to put into place without the right tools. Adam Pash and Gina Trapani give you those tools in Lifehacker. From email reduction to time-wasters to creating doable to-do lists, this is the best resource to turn to.

The book is structured in an easy to read way. At the beginning of each hack, the authors tell you the three most important pieces of information right up front:

Level: How easy is this going to be?

Platform: Where do I use this? Web, Windows, Mac, All?

Cost: How much does it cost?

This is a great way to evaluate the hacks that you will need quickly and will help you to find the information that will benefit you most. Fortunately, most of the hacks offered in this book are both easy and free.

Some of my favorite hacks in the book include:

Hack 1: Empty Your Inbox (and Keep It Empty)

Hack 9: Script and Automate Repetitive Replies

Hack 14: Instantly Recall Any Number of Different Passwords

Hack 24: Design Your Own Planner

Hack 25: Make Your To-Do List Doable

Hack 29: Dash Through Tasks With a Timer

Hack 39: Limit Visits to Time-Wasting Websites

Hack 53: Reduce Repetitive Typing

Hack 59: Become A Scheduling Black-Belt with Google Calendar

Hack 82: Augment Reality With Your Phone

Bottom Line: There is a ton of great information contained in this huge 476 page book. You probably won't use every hack and you probably already follow some of the author's advice, but you will (at least you should) use most of the hacks in this book. Highly Recommended.

BONUS: Lifehacker also has a companion website that has updates, additional information, and more tips and tricks.

BONUS #2: For the best theory book on why you should implement these time-saving tools, read The 4-Hour Workweek, Expanded and Updated: Expanded and Updated, With Over 100 New Pages of Cutting-Edge Content. They complement each other very well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Changed the way I work in one weekend! 27. Juni 2011
Von Christine L Walker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book as a birthday present to myself. Lucky me!

Adam Pash and Gina Trapani have distilled the very best tools from the Lifehacker blog to help you streamline your workflow, focus your attention and work on the stuff that matters. I read it straight through in a weekend and now I am going back through, and following their clear, detailed instructions to implement very meaningful changes to the way I work. They have included hacks for everyone - newbies to geeks.

This is an outstanding example of book written to take full advantage of the digital format. They have included many links, allowing readers to go deeper into the content if they want. The table of contents is like a toolbox filled with gems. After reading it on my ipad, I downloaded it to my desktop and I am working from there to upgrade my digital life.

Lifehacker continues to be a Lifechanger!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great collection of tips to make you a power user 12. September 2011
Von Lost My Mind - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I've read the occasional article from Lifehacker blog and often found them to be hit-or-miss. However, the Lifehacker guide is a great collection of the best-of-the-best tips and tricks for making you more effective and efficient. Most of the tips are completely free and many of them don't even require a third-party application (such as using your smart phone, Outlook, or Mail client more effectively).

The authors also make an effort to provide instructions/tips for Mac/Windows/iPhone/Android/etc. They also provide step-by-step instructions and links to software to minimize confusion or hassle.

The three caveats about this book are:
1. The book appears written for a computer novice, but many of the tips require you to be fairly proficient with computers and "tinkering" with applications. While the step-by-step instructions make it fairly easy to follow, the troubleshooting instructions often leave something to desire (especially if mess up a step). However, there are ample warnings when you can irreparably mess up your computer.

2. The tips have a relatively short lifespan--that is, within a year or two, many of the tips will be outdated or the instructions will be incorrect. There's a website to get updated instructions for the tips, but it's not clear how long the website will actually be maintained. A proficient computer user will still be able to understand and apply the tips provided even if the written material goes out of date.

3. The sections on social engineering are not nearly as useful as the ones on tech tips. Unless you are a person who gets a lot out of self-help books, those sections won't add much value. They will sometimes throw in ideas on how to 'remind' yourself to be more efficient, but your mileage may vary.

Overall, a pretty good book. Worth the read as most people will get at least a few, really useful tips. Heck, anyone who uses Outlook and hasn't "mastered" inbox rules will find the book worth reading.

2.0 von 5 Sternen My head just exploded 15. Oktober 2012
Von Michael G. Lustig - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
My impression was that this book was intended to help you to be more efficient in your day-to-day activities. In the preface the author says it's a smorgasbord and that the reader should select the things they like. Unfortunately, the author and I don't see things the same way. I read this book cover-to-cover and the only thing I used was the Zendesk Wall for ambient sound.
Let me start by saying that I am a computer programmer so installing and using software is a daily activity for me. There are a few non-computer related tips that some people might benefit from like making a to-do list but the majority of the book is about computers and software.

All of the software the author introduces requires you to learn how to use a new product. Since most of the software is written by different companies, there is no consistency across products. That means that you would theoretically need to learn to use a lot of new programs. Personally, that sounds like additional work rather than a way to be more efficient. If you were to install all of the program the author introduces, you would have dozens of new products running on your computer resulting in a degradation of performance.

The author also makes statements like your email inbox should be emptied every day. That statement alone makes me cringe. He then goes on to say that in a business environment you should not respond to emails quickly because it sets unrealistic expectations. In fact, he said you should respond to business emails in 4-6 hours and up to 48 hours later. If I did that, I wouldn't have a job.

There were some browser tricks I didn't know about but these were covered too quickly to be of any value. The same applies to many of the email tips.
And for the record searching for "Tax*.*" does not return files with "Tax" anywhere in the name; rather, it returns files that begin with "Tax". The correct search is "*tax*.*".
I appreciate the amount of work that went into this book but found little that I would actually use. Granted, I'm not your average computer user but a lot of this book relies on you to do the work. That's kind of the opposite of what I expected.

Personally, I would have benefited more if the book focused on key areas like using the web browser's search features and configuring rules to automate email delivery and sorting in Outlook. The problem is that the author not only discussed numerous Windows products but also tried to cover Mac-OS too.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Organize your life (or at least your email) 6. Oktober 2011
Von Timothy Walker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
If you've ever visited and thought, "I wish this was a book", then consider this a prayer answered. Even if you've never heard of the site, if you are looking for a highly accessible, user-friendly guide to making better use of the technology that you likely use on a daily basis - a PC or Mac, a smartphone, and Google - then this book (and its parent site) are well worth your time and attention.

Four stars for those of us who already use keyboard shortcuts and know what macros are. Novices should give it one more star... or be given this guide for the holidays.
