This book provides a good history of the growth of Facebook. But there are several events which are vague in Facebook Effect, but painted in more unflattering detail in The Social Network (taken from Accidental Billionaires).
Well that was sad. Gladwell's books are always so great that I jumped on this one right away. I know it will be a huge hit in sales with books in every store, airport, and web site. But it just says "small people have different strategies than big people". Then proceeds to illustrate with examples that are not very strong, exciting, or motivating.
Hope his next book is better.
Schiff does a great job of explaining how an economy is created from production and exchange. Then he goes on to explain how government activities disrupt production in favor of consumption. Everyone should listen to this. It is a better introduction than I received the 2 graduate-level economics classes I took from a major university.
This book is a combination of 1950's detective novel and Atlas Shrugged. I listened to 2 hours of the audio and still nothing had happened. Writing is stiff and does not really go anywhere.
The new technologies in the book are not bad. But, Al Gore admits that he is known for having a boring personality. So why die he decide to read his own book using his monotone voice? I could not listen any more, the reading was too dull. In danger of sleeping while driving.
This is a fantastic story spanning the entire history of the CIA. It is difficult to separate what is actual history from what is just speculation. Well connected characters across all of the stories. History woven throughout. I wish I could find a book like this every month.
This is a great story! Loved all of it. I am not a runner, but am very interested in fitness and health. This story has great history and great characters mixed together in a very unusual event.
This story was fun with some good characters. But it falls short of the fun and fascination of his book "Sacre Bleu"
This is an excellent review of economics and the current financial and political situation. It is a must read before you go to the voting booth in November.
Halpern's first book about his father was fantastic. This second work about his own life is pretty boring - except when his father makes an appearance. Go for the first book and skip this one.
This was my first Christopher Moore book. It was outstanding, funny, clever, interesting. For the first hour I did not really get what the story was about, but I did not care because it was so cleverly written that I was having a great time just listening to the conversations.
I am going to listen to all of his books.
The reader also did a great job with the material.
