Product Details

Praise

This insightful, evenhanded book… delves into the motivations and mindset of “life hackers,”…. [a] lively, well-written take.—Publishers Weekly

The book not only lays bare an increasingly popular ethos of our time, but also exposes the layers of exploitation it potentially engenders…. Insightful, and simultaneously disturbing.

LSE Review of Books

A comprehensive look at the recent history and major personalities (also known as “the Geeks and the Gurus”) associated with the emergent phenomenon known as “life hacking.”

Science

Hacking Life is to be welcomed as a useful meditation on the neoliberal culture of our time and the kinds of selves we are rapidly becoming in this digital age.

Times Higher Education

Life hacking was (and is), as Reagle explains, a pursuit of the “creative class,” a product of privilege, and sometimes a disease of it.
