Revision History of Cognitive Productivity with macOS Book by Luc P. Beaudoin

The book Cognitive Productivity with macOS®: 7 Principles for Getting Smarter with Knowledge is officially complete. However, I have been making minor changes to it. This page contains the revision history of the book, from 2018-07-14 onwards. Dates/times are Pacific.

This book is only available as an ebook, which makes sense given that it’s about learning with technology. You can buy it from Leanpub, Amazon and on Apple’s iBookstore. The Leanpub version gives you access to the book in PDF, Kindle and e-pub (Apple iBooks) formats. I also revise the Leanpub version more frequently than the others. Leanpub also gives higher author royalties.


Fixed issues in Principle 3, “Assess”.

  • Corrected a typo
  • Fixed an image, “CUP’A in Relation to Forms of Value”, which had failed to appear. (Seems to be due to a Leanpub glitch: a replacing the image with a lower resolution image fixed the problem. The issue had not been noted as dramatic in the Leanpub book generation email to me. Just burried in with a bunch of other warnings “is too wide to fit on your page. We have made it a bit narrower for you. You don’t need to take any action. This image is used in these files:[…]”)


  • Added a couple of extras,
  • adapted the text referring to extras, and
  • corrected typos in frontmatter
