Summary of Reality Hacking
Unusual Ideas and Provocations for Reinventing Your Work
Reality Hacking: Where New Age meets the New Economy.
New Age meets the New Economy in this book by British author Nicola Phillips, who shows her cyber-stripes with catchy Internet lingo, and graphics - including underlining, arrows and buttons - that give the book pages the look of Web pages. Whether you find this faux-functionality refreshing or distracting, it truly is original and unique. It’s more difficult to say the same about the book’s content, which is somewhat unfocused, a bit repetitive and often familiar. Nevertheless, getAbstract found it interesting to read this very British approach to the Yankee-dominated self-help genre, spiced up with a jazzy high-tech angle on the most low-tech of all subjects: personal growth.
