I've been a big fan of the Bourne series and this one just feels like a money grab by the publisher. I actually didn't finish this one which is a surprise for me. I normally push through to the end but I decided this book was letting me down. The action sequences held my attention but the connecting pieces just didn't hold my attention.
The story wasn't just read it was acted. I quite enjoyed that.
This book is about technology but it's told from the human side. The stories of the people that make it all happen are both interesting and encouraging. As much as the theme of this book can have scary implications I came away hopeful for the future.
Anderson mentions Ponoko a number of times in the book but when I went looking for them online I didn't know how to spell their name. That meant I had to do some searching. There is an appendix at the end of the book that would be so much better as a printed resource.
3D printers are going to become common place. That along with digital design tools are going to increase the speed of innovation.
I was inspired by this book to source a 3D printer. I'm now looking at building the business case for buying one.
This book can get a bit repetitive. I flew through the first 3/4 of the book. The last section seemed a little further from the core premise and didn't seem to flow as well.
A thoroughly enjoyable read. The themes were repeated in such away that I could absorbed them even in the audio format. I've been encouraging others to read the book by listing the three factors of drive. This tells me that the material was presented to that I could actually benefit from it. In some ways the book was too long in there there wasn't new material added when the existing topics were covered. I wholeheartedly recommend the book to managers, even parents!
