This is a classic and a great concept. However, I was waiting for the storey to develop and it never really did. The idea of the Dyson Sphere is fascinating and the SciFi was good.
So few books and courses are this good. Educational and entertaining. John McWhorter is a brilliant and funny. Maybe 1 out of a 100 books and courses can be described as educational and entertaining. You just found one, lucky!
Stephen King never ceases to amaze me with his prodigious talent. When I discovered Mr. Mercedes was a crime thriller, I was very intrigued. This book seemed to me like a police procedural novel but by Stephen King. I loved this book because this novel had all the excitement of a police novel and the amazing writing of Stephen King. The best part of this novel is how several characters transform throughout the novel. You really care about the characters by the end. Uncanny how he is able to make you love the characters.
Lots of great lines too...
Ya? ..... Ya!
I am a big fan of Daniel Suarez. For all of his books you have to be willing to suspend disbelief a bit. The premise of the story is clever and the story is good (although slow at times). If you really love science you might like the beginning. Otherwise it may be a bit boring.
There are many ways to take measure of a good book. How you feel reading the book and how you feel after reading it when you reflect back is a good measure for me. Great books make you feel good in both time frames. Good books only make you feel good in one. In this case, this book was good while reading but not so great on reflection. I give it a 5 because it is still better than most of the books out there.
This book is extremely useful, both personally and professionally. There are key marketing concepts as well as powerful self-help tools. I have read this book several times.
This was a short but sweet mini novel. Probably not worth the credit but certainly a great short listen.
Yes, there is so much information in this book
The writer's experience finding the best parts was fantastic
So much history I never knew
This story follows the Da Vinci Code formula quite closely. If this does not bother you, this is a very good story with very plausable science and solid history of Einstein's life. If you like science, you should love this book.
This book and Blink (Gladwell), I believe are related. This book explains how to capture knowledge and Blink explains why it works.
This book lucidely explains why globalization works in a way that an Economic text could never do.
