There are also lots of websites to help you implement the system and make it even more usable. I have been integrating the principles with Evernote as described in The Secret Weapon website.

As a blogger I use Google Analytics to track site statistics, and this book is all about using the Google Analytics tool more effectively. Before I read this book about all I knew how to do was check the number of visitors and where they were coming from, but there is so much more I was missing out on. This book helps you do things like track social and mobile visitors, use the new multichannel funnel reporting features, set up filters and much more.
