I guess this book about met my expectations. Even though at times it seems much like a text book, there really was not the depth and dry fact delivery I would hope to find in such a tome. I have recently read through a couple other universe reality books both scientific and philosophical and think that although this avoids the philosophical pursuits does use many of the same processes to prove a point.
Great read...though only if you are into deep astrophysical topics.
The story manages to have a moan character That is not always the driving force in the events as unfolding in the plot. I think as a scifi it is much more than adequate in character, plot, and backstory. I am a growing fan of Sanderson.
a history of how the great minds of the 1600 brought us modern physics and mathematics. I would really love to try an dread some of the original texts of the "math-Masters". to think in the 1600's people could calculate the position of the moon in relationship to the earth within inches...
great post apocalyptic sci-fi. The main character has lots of potential. I first real a reckoners short, and it got me hooked. I have already started the second book in the series. great plot, characters are interesting too, plus the book has enough plot twists to make it bearable. mid-teens in difficulty.
I have lived through the pc and Internet revolution, in the trenches of the last 35 years discussed in this book. It seems at times to either have been researched through the social media it looks to be the future of technology or a press piece for the still viable companies discussed there in. I did enjoy the historical discussions of activity in the technological evolution prior to 1960, but it screamed too much of Platonic/Socialistic philosophy...no individual has original thought.
fun time travelling book. WWII with a modern navy dropped in. very predictable if you have read a couple of the other similarly themed books. This is a fun read, but not extremely thought provoking.
A wonderful fairy tale until the authors interview I thought was written in the 1990's. I was very impressed with the authors story telling style way was reminded of Chaucer or T White. Great story classic fairy tale style, and enough plot for an adult.
Not a book for cyclicals or union shops. But a real man(or woman by the specific female gender reference in the book) view of the way to manage fast paced technological change and the people who drive it.
The overall story close in future meets recent past I have read several times lately. I think the author would have done much better in not using current names for future events.

Overall the text is great medication to get up and get moving. The only portion of the book I did not understand is why like so many authors I have experienced lately they have to stray from such good content into political or off topic distractions. I really do not understand the relationship of a transgender advocate on a fantastic text about our societal change towards the sedentary? AUTHORS STOP THINKING you have to solve everything at once and stick to your fantastic core topic.
