    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Charles Atkinson says: "Really Fast Paced Sci Fi!"
    "An Amazing Tech Thriller"
    Overall

    This book, Daemon is an amazing technology thriller. I'm almost finished with Part 1 of the 2 Part Audio book and can't stop listening to it!

    If you are interested in computers or technology this is THE book to read (listen to). The content is very smart and accurate.

    The Technology press have given the book very high acclaim and reviews. Rumor from article reviews has indicated the government is carefully reviewing the book and believes its study may assist in preventing future technology threats.
    This is an amazing book and the best I've listened to in a long time! Daniel Suarez is clearly an author to follow. He is the Michael Crichton of Tech Thrillers in my eyes!

    When single father Danny Goodman suddenly finds himself unable to afford the private school his teenage daughter adores, he has no one to turn to for financial support. In what seems like a stroke of brilliant luck, Danny meets Thomas Galvin, the father of his daughter’s new best friend, who also happens to be one of the wealthiest men in Boston. Galvin is aware of Danny's situation and out of the blue offers a $50,000 loan to help Danny cover his daughter's tuition. Uncomfortable but desperate, Danny takes the money, promising to pay Galvin back.

    Story

    I like this story, but I don't think it was his best. A good book from this author is still better than books by many other authors. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to others

    Following his blockbuster biography of Steve Jobs, The Innovators is Walter Isaacson’s revealing story of the people who created the computer and the Internet. It is destined to be the standard history of the digital revolution and an indispensable guide to how innovation really happens. What were the talents that allowed certain inventors and entrepreneurs to turn their visionary ideas into disruptive realities? What led to their creative leaps? Why did some succeed and others fail?

    Story

    This is an excellent book covering the timeline and progression of innovation and technology. Isaacson's coverage and profile of these innovators and their work is detailed and focuses on their significance and contributions. It is nice how he ties all these innovators together and shows how the work was a progression building on the work of previous innovators. An excellent book worth reading!!!
