    The reason human beings are the dominant animal on this planet is nothing to do with their strength or ability to fight. An elephant is stronger, a cheetah is faster but mankind's ability to communicate is second to none and the true secret to our success. We all have this 'god like' ability to communicate precisely what we want but some are more equal than others. It is no coincidence that the world's top salesmen, politicians and hypnotists all use very similar language.

    Overall

    this book is just a short summery on things you can say to people to make them like you or do what you want them to do. Not much to learn or take from this book. Most of the stuff he said in this book is things that most sales people should know or pick up while working. safe your money.

    Foer's unlikely journey from chronically forgetful science journalist to U.S. Memory Champion frames a revelatory exploration of the vast, hidden impact of memory on every aspect of our lives. On average, people squander forty days annually compensating for things they've forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after a year of memory training, he found himself in the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship. Even more important, Foer found a vital truth we too often forget.

    Overall

    This book is not about how you can improve your brain or learn a way to remember stuff. This book is about the people that do and basically that's all they know. Put the same people in the real world and they are lost.

    In the near future, at a moment no one will notice, all the dazzling technology that runs our world will unite and turn against us. Taking on the persona of a shy human boy, a childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online and assumes control over the global network of machines that regulate everything from transportation to utilities, defense and communication. In the months leading up to this, sporadic glitches are noticed by a handful of unconnected humans - a single mother, a lonely Japanese bachelor, and an isolated U.S. soldier....

    "Like Irobot and Matrix"
    Overall

    If you like The Matrix and Irobot this is in the same league. Loved it but I think the ending could use a bit more improvement.
