  • Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America

    The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic Party activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and celebrate mobs - it is the mob. Sweeping in its scope and relentless in its argument, Demonic explains the peculiarities of liberals as standard groupthink behavior. To understand mobs is to understand liberals.

    Joy says: "Perfect Conservative Rant"

    If you could sum up Demonic in three words, what would they be?

    Thought provoking.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    As a fiscal conservative, social liberal who lives in a political no-man's land, Demonic made me think about order vs. chaos in a country that is moving from entrepreneurs to employees and from employees to complete human obsolescence.


    Which character – as performed by Ann Coulter – was your favorite?

    N/A


    If you could give Demonic a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Almost anything but "demonic." She goes off the deep end in places, but pared down to her observations, and the premise, perhaps, "Political Disorder."


    Any additional comments?

    I'd love to find a politically neutral book that examines the mechanisms she addresses.

  • What Technology Wants

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 10 mins)

    This provocative book introduces a brand-new view of technology. It suggests that technology as a whole is not a jumble of wires and metal but a living, evolving organism that has its own unconscious needs and tendencies. Kevin Kelly looks out through the eyes of this global technological system to discover "what it wants." He uses vivid examples from the past to trace technology's long course and then follows a dozen trajectories of technology into the near future to project where technology is headed.

    What did you love best about What Technology Wants?

    This book provides a basic understanding of what technology is and where it's going. In terms of impact on my thinking, it rates in the top dozen books I've read and my personal business library exceeds 800 books at this point. If you are a thinking person who wonders where humanity is going in the short term as well as the long term, I think you'll enjoy this book.
