    Story
    (37)

    In the free-fall environment of the Smoke Ring (an envelope of breathable atmosphere around a neutron star), the descendants of the crew of the Discipline no longer remember their Earth roots - or the existence of Sharls Davis Kendy, the ship's computer-program despot. Until Kendy initiates contact once more.

    "The Smoke Ring"
    Overall

    I am a Larry Niven fan, but this book was not very engaging or entertaining. I found myself often lost. If reading the book myself I would likely have re-read the section, but on audio book format re-reading is not easy. Overall a rough task that I was glad to be done with.

    Story

    Albert-Laszlo Barabasi traces the fascinating history of connected systems. Understanding the structure and behavior of networks will forever alter our world, allowing us to design the "perfect" business or stop a disease outbreak before it goes global.

    Alex says: "Network theory for beginners"
    "Very interesting and well paced"
    Overall

    I found this book very interesting. It does a good job of setting up the premise. It covers a few examples of links in a way that is easy to extend out to other networks. I did find some assertions about history (such as mobile devices started from the Apple Newton) made by the author to be suspicious, but they did not detract from the message.
