I work as a computer consultant and knew some of the google story, but these fascinating insights are truly inspirational to us computer geeks of the world. Great insights into the business behind the computer industry and how staying true to your dreams can pay off.
One of the few books that I will reread. So many books related to Psychic material are just anecdotal fairy tales. This nicely relates various phonomenon to related science based references.
I was partially drawn to this book because of it's setting in Atlantic Canada, where I live. It proved to be a fun read that combined authentic Acadian history with some storytelling to create a very enjoyable read.
Although I found the first 1/3 a little slow, I really enjoyed the application of the author's insights in many anecdotes in the last 2/3. Interesting to realize that many of the one a million people are really not quite as "special" as we are accustomed to thinking.
Wow what a story. I am not much of a gambler or card player, but it is a great read. Now, if only I could count cards like that, I too could be rich!
Now I need to take a trip to Australia. Interesting insights to the early history of Australia. The challenges of the black/natives vs whiteman's rights are certainly thought provoking.
I started to get a little tired of the typical titilating affair at the beginning of the story, but was totally satisfied with the reasons for the telling of the tale by the end!
I found the premise of this story to be interesting, but the delivery a little monotonous.
I was pleased to find a nice summer read that seemed to be set in Atlantic Canada where I live. I was totaly drawn into the twisting story line and surprise ending. Anyone from the Halifax / Lunenburg area will enjoy hearing the names of many of our local streets, places and things placed in a well written novel.
Although a little contrived (in a simpler way than Davinci Code), an enjoyable and inpiring read (listen).
I was really looking for a book on GREEK mythology, but this was very enlightening as it expanded the Mythology of the WHOLE WORLD. Egyption, Native Indian, you name it.
