Bit Literacy: Productivity in the Age of Information and E-mail Overload – Mark Hurst (free ebook epub/mobi)

“Bit Literacy” is essential reading for anyone who has experienced “digital overload”: the daily flood of e-mail, multiple todo lists, a cluttered desktop, documents in various file formats, and the constant distraction of cell phones and other devices. More than a quick fix or another “how-to” guide, the book offers an entirely new way of attaining productivity that users at any level of expertise can put into action right away. This is “bit literacy,” a method for working more productively in the digital age, with less stress. Mark Hurst – who has reached hundreds of thousands of readers through his Good Experience e-mail newsletter, Uncle Mark technology guides,, and other websites – has revealed the way to survive, and thrive, in the digital age: “Let the bits go.”
