    A visionary whose writing broke through the boundaries of the science fiction genre, Philip K. Dick is regarded as a major figure of twentieth-century fiction. In 2007, he became the first science fiction writer to be included in the Library of America Series. Set in various dystopian futures, these stories explore such themes as time travel, artificial/alien intelligence, authority, knowledge and the use or control of it, memory, and the frighteningly malleable nature of what we call "reality."

    Story

    I remember fondly some of the stories of Philip Dick that I read in my youth. However, I did not enjoy this collection. Maybe it was that the stories were written by Dick when he was still a young writer, maybe I have changed too much and no longer enjoy Dick as I used to. I did not finish this collection.
    Some of the stories were also read by narrators that annoyed me.

    Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.

    Story

    This book is surpriisingly good. I like these kind of books but sometimes they turn out to be more form than substance. Not so for this book: very clear structure, reliable science-based approach and exciting, inspiring examples (although some were already known to me). I finished the book last week and already I find that it is helping me to structure my thoughts and get a clearer picture in my mind of how to achieve my goals , personal as well as professional.
