As an ISP here in the Philippines, i am always on the lookout for trends that we can 'ride' on. This audio book provides us with a lot of insights into how things became the way they are.
Usually, books of these types are typically boring. NOt so with the book as the author has sprinkled it liberally with real world examples and annecdotes.
I have only read up to chapter 23 and so far am thrilled with what i have heard so far. This novel is both entertaining and educational!
Would be aspiring hackers can learn a lot of technics just by following the fast paced twists and turns of the drama.
Cant wait to get to the ending of the novel!
While I enjoyed the book for the most part of it, I find the security posture by the SP people not to be realistic.
Any security professional worth his salt will ensure that the USB port is blocked. Also, a highly secured environment will have monitors in place to alert security professionals when a file copy operation is done.
I will not comment on the ending so as not to give it away. But i can say though that it leaves room for a sequel!
After having gone through the audio of Pillars of the Earth, i just had to listen to what happened to Jack's descendants.
World Without End is an epic that takes place a few generations later. While it still caused me to loose sleep and some work because it was engrossing, the ending was not as powerful as Pillars had been.
If i were a US Citizen, i would vote for the democrats after reading this book!
I love this book! It allowed me to see the forest instead of the trees!
And the author is right. I see myself in some of the weird and funny trends that the book describes.
We have always wondered why the Philippines is deep in debt and hardly able to regain its premier economic position in the late '50s.
If only 50% what the author claims is true, then it would be explosive! As more people read this book, they will be exposed to this idea of how the US government can use 'developmental loans' as a way to 'conquer' countries--and How the US is actively corrupting the leadership of each of these countries. Isnt this illegal?
This can form the legal basis for developing countries around the world to repudiate their loans and thereby help lift the plight of the poor in all the developing countries.
Countries like the Philippines are budgeting the majority (more than 60%) of our national budget just to service these debts. Debts that are a direct result of morally reprehensible EHMs. Money that could go to feed and educate millions of people, are being funneled to service these debts.
How much more independent can the Philippiens, if it were not saddled with these dubious 'development' loans? Find out by reading this book. If what the author claims is true. He should be held up as a modern day hero for his courage in exposing this practice.
