Great for the Techie... a little dated, but still a good read
on July 20, 2010
Having listened to "This Week in Google" (a great podcast btw) I can really hear Gina's voice as I read through this book. There may be some tips that I won't employ, but it gets the wheels turning. Be warned: Gina is a programmer. You don't really need to know how to code to make this stuff work, but there are some pretty technical tricks. If you constantly tell yourself, "I just want this damn thing to work", this may not be the book for you. If you are of the mind set that taking the time to figure out how to make a system work well will pay dividends in the future, then start reading.
I've adopted much of the spirit of these tips into my work flow, and people are a little amazed at how effortlessly I keep my inbox empty, seem to reply to everyone with careful consideration, generate all of my reports and maintain a calm/stress-free demeanor the whole time. Granted, all of this didn't come from this particular book, but there are some great ideas in here.
