It's time to fight back and zoom to your goals!

ZIP! Tips is an express ticket to productivity nirvana. Mike Song shows you that the secret is right at your fingertips-literally.

Tips is packed with the very best ways to instantly get more done via the world's most popular technology platforms: Microsoft Outlook, Apple iPads and iPhones, and Google Android and Search, to name a few.

As with his first two bestsellers, Song once again tells the story of Harold, a harassed executive who has been going round and round for so long, he's morphed into a hamster. Desperate, he encounters Z-a productivity superhero who uses his simple, not-so-secret weapon, ZIP!, to help business hamsters regain their humanity.

You'll turn your personal devices into your personal robots, destroy evil time-wasting aliens, and master amazing timesaving tips instantly! ZIP! is rocket fuel for careers and a spa day for the stressed-out soul. And best of all, ZIP! Tips gets the hamster in all of us off the wheel once and for all.
