Far too much time, over half the book, is spent explaining why one needs to hack work and giving a pep talk to encourage the reader to be OK with the concept of "it's easier to ask forgiveness, not permission" instead of actually giving ideas for and examples of hacks. The hacks themselves are quite banal and generic, geared more towards non-technical manager types, such as "use Google Docs instead of the company document management system". From the title, I was expecting more of a book-length version of the Lifehacker blog - and I think the book would have benefitted more from the Lifehacker-style technical depth. Instead the book is geared more towards folks who find the Lifehacker style daunting.

Break the "rules" to enable you to be more productive.
This isn't a handbook, but rather anecdotal stories of how bypassing the rules and regulations to be more productive have helped others. If you are looking for the hows/whys/tips/techniques you'll find it lacking.
