    What did you love best about Deception?

    The book is based on facts that most people are not aware of, it informs people about the reality of how Pakistan was ignored and allowed to build nuclear weapons, its reasons for building and how it sold it almost in the open market.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    How translation of tech documents in Europe lead to Pakistan eventually building nukes


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Ronald Reagan and his administration ignored the information about Pakistan developing nuked and has never been criticized.

    Story

    Raising kids is not only about teaching them about sex but also about working on their studies, confidence, physical activity in their life and much much more.

    For the first hour or so I was amazed at some of stats presented by the author but then I hoped that she will move on, talk about handling that issue and move to the next but she continued for another 3 hrs only describing horror stories. We get it, thanks for sharing but isn't there much more to raising kinds then just scaring them to make them stay away from sex for a long long time ?

    There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labor. Now there’s a third team, the linchpins. These people invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They figure out what to do when there’s no rule book. They delight and challenge their customers and peers. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, and turn each day into a kind of art.

    Good for nothing but for 2 bucks it wasnt too bad. Its obviously isnt a book but I have read better white papers. This is more like interviewing 2-3 executives. The flow isnt great either
