I'm all about the life hacks. Seriously, who doesn't want to make life easier and take short cuts! This book was meh. There were less than a handful of hacks that I hadn't heard of before and the other ones listed weren't that amazing. There have been times when I've sat through hours of scrolling on Pinterest in a life hack spiral learning new things. I usually even enjoy relearning older hacks that I already knew but these were mostly boring or not very helpful. Oh well. It was worth a try. ...more

If you've been on Facebook at all over the past couple of years, you've probably seen a video showing you non-obvious uses of toilet paper rolls, or binder clips, or something else. This is a series of pages with 200 "life hacks", short write-ups with an illustrative, and often amateur, photograph to illustrate. I was able to go through this while sitting having lunch at McDonalds -- it's not a long nor an involving book. I'd say I have seen a majority of these suggestions previously, often on F ...more

Got a few new ones, like the kinetic sand and how to avoid "are we there yet?" But a lot of the other things I already know about since obviously, I'm into these life hacks, and have been paying attention to such spread around the Internet. ...more

I'm a sucker for a good life hack. Not sure if I'll ever use most of these but I loved the layout and presentation and it covered a diverse swath of areas of life that can be hacked. Solid. ...more

I read this picture book while waiting for an oil change. It was that quick of a read.

It’s the self-proclaimed world’s best ideas, so I had to read them. To my surprise, these were not innovative state of the art ideas. My favorite tip was to carry a sugar cube and use it as a weapon. Not 100% sure this will be the best line of defense but it might make an attacker laugh….and that's when I could run away. #lifehack

This book reminds me of the videos on Youtube with the upbeat music and the endles

Meh. Not terrible; definitely not good/great. It contains 200 life hacks... but I hardly learned anything. I plan to try one or two of them, but that's it. Each one is featured one-to-a-page and has no explanation. I got it from the library; so no money wasted. I'd recommend checking it out in a bookstore or library before spending money.

(I plan to use the sticker trick when Joe gets older, to help him learn which shoe goes on which foot. You cut a sticker in half and put half in each shoe. Lini

Most of the, 'hacks' were stolen from mediocre Pinterest boards. Assuredly, the hacks encompassed in this book work well, but the problem that remains is how unexciting the book is for the frequent readers of the DIY genre. ...more

Easy quick book with some rather useful hacks.

Some good ideas

But was already aware of making them. Not bad for a very short book but today with Pinterest and other sites you could get even more useful tips

Short smart tips with pictures but, to be honest, nothing new

There were a few useful suggestions here. Unfortunately, the images and illustrations were so crude and rudimentary I'm not even sure how they relate to the "hacks" they were supposed to demonstrate. Feh

Overall, the book was informative, but how do you rate something that gives you simple (only slightly) solutions to everyday problems? The information was useful, but there was only one hack where I thought, OMG I NEED TO TRY THIS.

There were some good tips that I'll remember, but many of the life hacks involved hanging on to objects that would normally enter our recycling bin immediately because we don't have room for the clutter. ...more

an amusing and occasionally useful collection of life hacks. that also happens to be totally forgettable. Granted, tips about making kinetic sand or other child-related hacks don't apply to me, but many of the others didn't interest me either. I was happy to learn that whatever car I'm driving should have a little arrow by the gas icon pointing to the side the gas tank is on. I didn't realize that before. but that is the most memorable and probably most useful tip in the book. It's mostly pictur ...more
