Book Tip: Bit Literacy

Bit Literacy book coverIf you’ve ever struggled with the volume of bits that require your attention every day, a recent book by Mark Hurst of Good Experience may help.

Titled Bit Literacy: Productivity in the Age of Information and E-mail Overload, the book offers simple common-sense suggestions for dealing with information overload.

Many of the suggestions are so basic that you may already be using similar strategies to deal with your daily workload, but the book is well worth reading nonetheless, as it makes a strong case for a comprehensive and simple approach any normal user can implement.

In fact, as you read the book, you may be reminded of countless friends and associates that fit the Busy Man description with striking accuracy, or others you know who would benefit from exposure to these ideas.
