This is a highly informative look into a world that few have access and fewer can truly tell about - the mind of a savant.
It is quite insightful and informative to see how his mind works
Unsurprisingly the story dips toward self indulgent tangents on a periodic basis but overall is a worthy book
I enjoy gospel music and thought this would be a good way to get to know the history and artists.
Unfortunately beyond the first couple songs (Amazing Grace & Battle Hymn of the Republic) I didn't know the music so the stories behind them were not that interesting.
If a version of the songs was included at the beginning of each chapter this would have been far more interesting.
The content is VERY superficial, I recognize that this is titled as a survey but some actual insight and content is still appropriate.
On top of that the narration is abysmal, very flat and halting.
After "the curious incident", a book that I absolutely loved, I was greatly disappointed.
I found this book to be wanting of a story line.
There really was limited overall message/story that linked everything together
excellent insight into the way connections link things throughout our world and shift our reality from simple personal networks to the internet.
The thesis is intriguing but the book drags at time.
This book is amazingly written from the perspective of a 15 year old and is a joy to read (listen to) for young and old alike
Logical approach to a current issue gaining increasing attention.
Hits key issues and provides solid framework for assessment of the big issues.
Slows down at points and becomes a bit redundant
Overall a good book
