Getting Things Done was one of the seeds that started Lifehacker. It’s a personal productivity book. David Allen was targeting corporate executives, but his ideas struck a chord with the coder community. Software started popping up to help you implement the GTD protocols. After that this idea for life hacks began to float around the web. We launched Lifehacker soon.

What Andy Haldane says

An extraordinary book. It has received, in my view, far too little attention. Scarcity of goods, services, resources and time have all been analyzed to death. The scarcity that exists between our ears — our cognitive bandwidth — has scarcely been analyzed at all. Mullainathan and Shafir show that this neurological constraint is fundamental in explaining all manner of behaviors and outcomes, from unaffordable borrowing to measured IQs. The public policy implications are potentially profound.

When I read a review of Levitin’s book, I sat up and took notice because I’m bombarded by information every hour of every day. Levitin does an excellent job in discussing the science of thinking in language that’s not only clear and informative but also entertaining. Readers of this book will get a better understanding of the mind along with some valuable guidance on how to exploit the emerging world of Big Data.
