About the Book
This screencast-rich book is for Mac users who want to become even better at selecting and using the highest quality information. Whether you are a professional knowledge worker, a student or a lifelong learner, this book is designed to help you become smarter with knowledge.
Much has been written about "information overload". Alas, very little popular literature provides specific, cognitive science-based guidance for thriving in the sea of knowledge.
This book covers (or will cover) many apps and web services, including OmniFocus, OmniOutliner, Skim, PDFPenPro, Preview, iBooks, Timing, ReadCube's Papers, Pinboard, Pocket, reeder, Spillo, Readkit, TextExpander, LaunchBar, and Anki. There are plenty of general tutorials for these apps. What makes Cognitive Productivity books unique is that they focus on using such software to become a more effective person.
Have you read Stephen Covey's 1988 book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People? That book has a principle called "Sharpen the Saw®", which includes a very short section on the importance of reading. Cognitive Productivity with macOS is laser-focused on a similar theme. But this book deals with using macOS to improve oneself. And this book is based on cognitive science. (The Author is an adjunct professor of Cognitive Science and of Education, and co-founder of CogSci Apps.)
