An insider perspective of the world of intelligence and modern warfare. The reasons behind introducing drones and their evolution into effective predators is described in great detail. Fascinating look into use of data to improve decision making. The story is surprisingly revealing.
The narration was direct and purposeful, but not droning.
There were some beautiful uses of data described. The collaboration between government agencies described is awe inspiring. There is some parts of prayer and deep patriotic feelings by the author.
All should read/listen to this book. Archived for over 70 years, it is surprisingly relevant today. Maybe not surprising because human nature has not changed regardless of time and technology. It is short, to the point and will hit a chord regardless of age and experience.
Stiff is a very complete, informative, mostly unemotional story of researching what happens to human bodies after death from the normal to the weird, religious to scientific, old to futuristic means of processing dead human remains. Not for the faint of heart, but very much for the curious. Check out Stiff if you want to know more and had questions about certain means of processing dead human remains, it will enlighten (not in the religious sense) and educate you.
With the readership for this book, I was recommended this book by someone at work. With the soon to be released movie, I thought I would entertain the idea to see what all the fuss was about.
Now I know. Not for the faint of heart, this book explores a very dark side of sex, pleasure and desire between a dom and a sub. Find out what price they pay to explore this rarely talked about world.
If you like brief, but beautiful fictional stories which remain timeless, listen to this one. Inspiration for recent animated movies, this story is a classic by every meaning of the word. Enjoy.
This book has plenty of tips and tricks to deal with or ignore the BS which happens in most businesses.
If you want a long winded answer and storyline with extra unnecessary drama for each point, skip this book and keep shopping (you are likely not shopping for a business book. Try novels and other fiction instead).
If you want a usable reference guide to deal with a lot of typical BS in the business world, get this book. Learn and enjoy.
Yes. I have been listening to Todd Henry's excellent podcasts The Accidental Creative for over year. This book has some very helpful hints to generating creative ideas on a regular basis and optimal ways to managing your work/life balance.
There are some nice real world stories that illustrate his points about his kids and people Todd has met.
Since Todd is the voice behind his podcast series I knew his audio book would be a be a good listen, easy to understand and gives good advise in managing things.
Listen to this audio book and the podcast series The Accidental Creative as well.
