  • The Tetris Effect: The Game That Hypnotized the World

    Tetris is perhaps the most instantly recognizable, most popular video game ever made. But the fascinating story of its origins is lesser known. How did an obscure Soviet programmer working on frail, antiquated computers create a product that has earned nearly $1 billion in sales? How did an inspired makeshift game turn into a worldwide sensation that has been displayed at the Museum of Modern Art, inspired a Hollywood movie, and been played in outer space?

    Dan's reading of his book was fine except he reads way too fast. Thankfully Audible let's vary the playback speed. 0.85 was perfect.

    Even though he's on forced leave from the clandestine intelligence group known as The Campus, Jack Ryan, Jr., still finds himself caught in the crosshairs after an attempt on his life is thwarted when he turns the tables on his would-be dispatcher. Convinced that the attack is linked to his recent covert actions with the convalescing Iranian national Ysabel Kashini, Jack sets out to find out who wants him dead - and why.

    The story deserved a fuller exploration at the end. It seem to be rushed into a wrap-up over the final chapters. Excellentl work again by Scott Brick.

    In the spirit of Steve Jobs and Moneyball, Elon Musk is both an illuminating and authorized look at the extraordinary life of one of Silicon Valley's most exciting, unpredictable, and ambitious entrepreneurs - a real-life Tony Stark - and a fascinating exploration of the renewal of American invention and its new makers.

    Only time will tell if Musk will live up to his own high ideals. This book gives a good insight into the man behind technolog businesses Tesla and Space-X.

    Written before Alexander the Great was born, this Chinese treatise on war has become one of the most influential works on the subject. Read widely in the east since its appearance 2,500 years ago, The Art of War first came to the west with a French Jesuit in 1782. It has been studied by generals from Napoleon to Rommel, and it is still required reading in most military academies of the world.

    Michael says: "Just your basic Art of War translation"

    Story

    Scott Brick was great, as always. However, the book would have been hard going without the counterpoint of insights voiced by Shelly Frasier.
