    In this classic of literary nonfiction, Annie Dillard takes us through a year of on-foot explorations through her own landscape, bringing anecdotes, curiosities, and insights about all she observes and experiences. In the summer, she stalks muskrats in the creek and thinks about wave mechanics; in the fall, she watches a monarch butterfly migration and dreams of Arctic caribou. She tries to con a coot, unties a snakeskin, witnesses a flood, and plays "King of the Meadow" with a field of grasshoppers.

    "Pure Enthusiastic Joy"
    Overall

    Annie shares her thoughts with us as she explores nature. And what thoughts! She pulls in philosophy, science, religion, poetry, other books into what she???s viewing giving us a deeper appreciation of the vivid descriptions of the critters she loves. You will catch the joy and want more.

    The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won't create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren't learning from them. It's easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But every time we create something new, we go from 0 to 1.

    Founder of PayPal, Peter Thiel has lots of insights into what has worked for startups and what hasn't. He brings those stories but also a challenge to think for yourself.
