Probably not, hard to listen to the same book twice.
Last Child In The Woods. Both making a point. Last Child was more focused.
Fine. No complaints.
Good book. I would have liked to see more technical content as well as less focus on Wall Street. But it was good. I'll look for more books in the same vein.
This book is about technology but it's told from the human side. The stories of the people that make it all happen are both interesting and encouraging. As much as the theme of this book can have scary implications I came away hopeful for the future.
It was very informative on algorithms development in programming and at the same time entertaining.
"search" by John Batel and from "Gutenberg to Zuckerberg" by John Naughton.
it was good.
If thinking a great deal and saying hmm... is an extreme reaction, then yes.
If you are in finance, data or programming this is an interesting book, giving a good overview over algorithms development.
Interesting, slow, boring
It depends on their interests. If you are in to automation, you would probably find it interesting. However, it you dislike technology, you would not like the book.
His performance was fine.
An excellent introduction to how mathematics and geeks are slowly controlling everything. I found it to be fascinating to listen to and very helpful in how I structure my own business and investment strategies. Make me wish I paid more attention to my maths teacher in school.
a great book that shows and explains in detail how automation is changing every industry, a must read to learn about how algorithms are changing every aspect of our lives.
It's surprising how algorithms will or already do affect our daily lives.
It inspired me to learn to code more.
Everyone needs a little bit of understanding of how automated algorithms affect them.
IT Manager and life long learner
Discusses not only how our world has been changed by algorithms but some of the scary stories of algorithms run a muck causing major issues. The story of the trading bot that was making millions of dollars in trades in error due to the breeze from an opening door was funny at one level but also very disconcerting.
I had completed listening to this book just prior to the political scandals about the NSA and IRS coming to the surface. This book explains how using so-called computer "algorithms" are used by governments and corporations in our lives.
Nothing we can do to make these things go away!
The best part of the book is the author's work in explaining algorithms and their new place in our world so clearly.
I found this very interesting. I was amazed at the new info for me. I really liked it.
