I have utilized Mike Song's other "process improvement" techniques (i.e. The Hamster Revolution & The Hamster Revolution for Meetings) and found they have saved me a lot of time. This book is no different and there are lots of tips to help "automate" routine tasks while sitting in front of your computer (or tablet, iPhone, etc.).

Mike walks us through all the tips by utilizing a first person conversation with Harold the Hamster. This makes the content, which could be very dry, entertaining. The book is very well laid out, with lots of hyperlinks and the index aka "Quick Find Guide" is one of the best I have seen.

There are thirteen chapters with eleven tips. I was familiar with four of them. The other seven more than made up for the small cost of the book. The best two, in my opinion, are "The Amazing AutoCorrector" and "The Draftinator".

The only reason I gave this book a "like" instead of "love" rating is because the two most useful tips for me I had learned from Mike's "Get Control" newsletter.

I would recommend this book as implementing what I learned in it has already saved me lots of time.

I was spoiled living in corporate and simply calling "Tech Support" anytime I needed help. Now, as an entrepreneur, I am the Tech support and believe me I am no tech support. Nor do I have time to invest in learning as much as I should. This 90+ easy read was just what I needed to improve my "tech management" (Mike's term). Thank Mike for a great tool that frees me up to spend more time ON MY BUSINESS and not IN MY BUSINESS!!!

Most of the tips outlined in this book I already knew and practiced. I wanted something new; something I didn't already know. I didn't find it here.

Obvious "tips" that I already knew from using Microsoft products for 20+ years. The gimmicky, page-filling anecdotes were just annoying fluff covering the few useful tips that could be found in any Help tab. Would give anything not to have bought it.
