Yay! Philipp Lenssen’s Google Apps Hacks just got reviewed on Slashdot by JR Peck, who had some kind words for the book:
Well, this book is an excellent introduction to Google’s many on-line applications. I use many already and still learned of a couple new ones when I read this book. It also does bring all that instruction into one place, and provides a very user-friendly style of instruction. There is also a very nice feature, 8 sections that take the reader “Beyond Google…”. Each of these sections informs the reader about alternative software that provides similar functionality to the Google software described in the preceding chapter. This is really a great resource and an unexpected bonus for anyone who reads the book.
(In the review, JR raises a good point about the definition of a Hack. We use the definition “A non-obvious solution to an interesting problem”, although JR leans toward some other definitions mentioned in the review).
