    Chris Anderson takes you to the front lines of a new industrial revolution as today’s entrepreneurs, using open source design and 3-D printing, bring manufacturing to the desktop. In an age of custom-fabricated, do-it-yourself product design and creation, the collective potential of a million garage tinkerers and enthusiasts is about to be unleashed, driving a resurgence of American manufacturing. A generation of "Makers" using the Web’s innovation model will help drive the next big wave in the global economy, as the new technologies of digital design and rapid prototyping gives everyone the power to invent.

    Definitely worth the time and money. If you have time to read one book on the subject this is the one.

    In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. Now a second revolution is under way in the approach to ADD, and the news is great. Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated.

    Story

    After being treated for ADD with initial success, I started to feel once again, that I was getting no where. This book will really help you truly understand the condition, and the changes you need to make to your life to get on a successful track. There was a point in the book where I got a powerful rush and really came to terms with how affected my life has been and where I needed to go.

  • Insanely Simple: The Obsession that Drives Apple's Success

    Simplicity isn’t just a design principle at Apple - it’s a value that permeates every level of the organization. The obsession with Simplicity is what separates Apple from other technology companies. It’s what helped Apple recover from near death in 1997 to become the most valuable company on Earth in 2011. Thanks to Steve Jobs’s uncompromising ways, you can see Simplicity in everything Apple does: the way it’s structured, the way it innovates, and the way it speaks to its customers.

    Story

    Great look at the driving values behind the Apple success story. Very easy to listen to, entertaining at times and to the point. I am not a big Job's fan but came away with a lot more respect for the guy

    Story
    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Leadership Lessons of Steve Jobs (Harvard Business Review)?

    Cut? It was over before my coffee was warm enough to drink.


    Any additional comments?

    Should have stressed that this was a short article and the word "Unabridged" should not appear in the description. It really is a very short read and while the info is OK. It is not worth the time and money.
