This book and Blink (Gladwell), I believe are related. This book explains how to capture knowledge and Blink explains why it works.
I am a big fan of Daniel Suarez. For all of his books you have to be willing to suspend disbelief a bit. The premise of the story is clever and the story is good (although slow at times). If you really love science you might like the beginning. Otherwise it may be a bit boring.
There are many ways to take measure of a good book. How you feel reading the book and how you feel after reading it when you reflect back is a good measure for me. Great books make you feel good in both time frames. Good books only make you feel good in one. In this case, this book was good while reading but not so great on reflection. I give it a 5 because it is still better than most of the books out there.
This book is extremely useful, both personally and professionally. There are key marketing concepts as well as powerful self-help tools. I have read this book several times.
This was a short but sweet mini novel. Probably not worth the credit but certainly a great short listen.
Yes, there is so much information in this book
The writer's experience finding the best parts was fantastic
So much history I never knew
This story follows the Da Vinci Code formula quite closely. If this does not bother you, this is a very good story with very plausable science and solid history of Einstein's life. If you like science, you should love this book.
This is a classic and a great concept. However, I was waiting for the storey to develop and it never really did. The idea of the Dyson Sphere is fascinating and the SciFi was good.
This book lucidely explains why globalization works in a way that an Economic text could never do.
There are very few books that tell so much information in such a lucid way. This book is about one of the most important subjects in science and it is written in a way that is amazingly easy to understand. Quite an achievement.
there are elements of this book which are very interesting but to be honest there were times I was embarassed for Card. The writing is a little juvenile. It was almost like a child was telling the story at bedtime and you knew that this is not how the world works (in any time).
