Summer Reading Book Review: Pogue's Basics: Life

Book Title: Pogue's Basics: Life

Author: David Pogue

Reviewed By: Laura K.

If you like the 'Life Hacks' website, this book is for you. These aren't 'Hints for Heloise'. I figure that anyone can learn some new trick by reading this book. For example, do you know how to figure out where the gas tank is on a car without leaving the driver's seat? How about how to set a timer via Google?

Why I Picked it Up: I could use a few tips for understanding technology without having to read the user's manuals.

Why I Finished It: This is a far more engaging book than a technological tool user manual. Also, it told me how to keep cucumbers from getting squishy in the refrigerator.

I’d Give this Book To: I'd guess there's something for everybody in this book. It could be a source of social gathering conversation to see who knows the answer to the diverse list of 'how to solve it' issues covered in the book.
