    A visionary and optimistic thinker examines the tension between privacy and publicness that is transforming how we form communities, create identities, do business, and live our lives. The Internet, he argues, will change business, society, and life as profoundly as Gutenberg’s invention, shifting power from old institutions to us all.

    Simon H. Morris says: "An important read"
    "Intriguing"

    What made the experience of listening to Public Parts the most enjoyable?

    I love how this book made me think about how i perceive Public on the Internet.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Publicness is not evil. No one is out to get you, and being more public can actually have more benefit than harm if done with just a little thought.

    Story
    (5011)

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "Tough to Listen"

    What would have made Under the Dome better?

    The narration made it really difficult to listen to. It was a very monotone voice. I don't mind the voice at all. I would love to listen to this reader read something of a non-fiction type of story. But... this did just not work. I couldn't get over the lack of range as the characters talked and big plot events happened there was no inflection in the words.
    The story (as far as i listened) was pretty good....
    I actually had to stop listening because it was so rough. Like i said though. Great voice, just NOT FOR THIS BOOK.


    How could the performance have been better?

    More emotion and feeling in the reading book.
