I expected China Mieville to deliver as usual - but instead I get a childrens book.
Someone ought to told me.
Well, it's plain out sily in comparison. It got characters and depth - but the story line just doesn't hold.
pretty much nothing :-(
This is a a-typical self-help book that keeps repeating that it will show you "the good stuff", "how to make money", "I will tell you how I...X" - but *never* does.
The narrator is going on how extremely successful he is without ever telling you why, just that he is and that he did it by being persistent in doing. Well - that is not something you need to read a book about.
yes, but I guess no one but the author was willing to record this book.
Don't buy this book.
Eric should have found a professional reader. Now he keeps over acting, making it feel almost silly from time to time.
I really buy into the lean thinking and to
I feel disappointed... even thou I think Eric has a point here.
This is by far the best non-fiction book I've read in a very long time. Working as a manager of a software firm - I've long known that the best developers, the silent type, thrieve in solitude and letting them be alone will get you the best results. At the same time I've often wanted to foster better team spirit with open landscape seating etc. This book got me thinking and reflecting on both my workplace and friends & family around me.
The perfomance truly matches the sense and meaning of the book - so even thou it's a bit too slow for me it really works.
The Social Animal - also a book about our interactions with other people.
The part about Woz working for HP.
Introverts - a guide
This is another great read from Neal Stephenson - and which is taking place in the present.
Mixing both hackers, terrorists, cia, mi6 and MMORPGs makes for a great read with a twisting and interesting story line.
If you liked cryptonomicon you will love reamde
No, the book goes through in detail how technology of space combat could work - but it utterly fails to engage. Characters are flat out boring and you simply don't care if they die or live to the next page.
More depth to the characters
it suprises - but is very uneven.
This is a very long winding, boring story where almost non of the characters are given any depth.
it's filled with details about the war - but after a while it's just very very boring.
