This book is a manual on how you can use the web to reach out from your cubicle to collaborate with others. It suggests new web tools that can improve your work life and web sites and services that you might want to try. It introduces you to new ways of thinking and working. For example, re-examine your relationship with e-mail. Do you keep your "In Box" clean or cluttered with stuff "to do"? Have you considered using instant messenger (IM), chat, networking, or collaboration sites to exchange the same kind of information that you currently find in your e-mail? Try it. You might find that you like working in some new way better. Other suggestions that might improve your work productivity include how you surf or search for information on the web and your use of mobile information tools. Finally, the book acknowledges that for many people, work life and personal life are blending. Read about the pros and cons so that you can draw boundaries between them that are appropriate for you.
