This book will make any programmer who's worked on professional projects realize if he or she didn't know already... you are not alone. This book "gets it." and gets it in a way that's entertaining for the most part and gives just enough detail to make sense even to the non-programmer.
The slid in explanations of computer science concepts as they pertain to the story.
His voice is a little harsh sometimes. He wouldn't be a good smooth jazz dj let's just say.
Depends on the friend... The book is the very explicit story of a major porn star.
I doubt it. Kind of seems like she'd be a one trick pony book wise.
She reads well and expressively. She'd probably be a pretty ok actress. I believe she likes what she does. I think some of it was just sort of trying to pander to her fans and not really genuine. I found it kind of um... patronizing? but overall ok.
eh It was OK. It had some funny parts.
...Then by violating one of his previous rules: Don't get into politics.. .he lost me. I was fine with how he talked to believers and decided to treat faith or "pretending to know something you don't actually know" as a or the problem.
But then in a later chapter, violating a suggested rule he really should have stuck to himself, he went on a near non sequitur rant about the evils of "academic leftism" that would have made Glenn Beck proud.
Should have stuck to the subject of faith and religion instead of delving into politics. Ironically he warned that would turn off potential converts earlier in the book --and most certainly proved that to be true with his own digression.
It's as if somebody else started writing around chapter 13.
The word "homophobe" is the result of an evil "tolerance" that has been adopted by the "academic left?" Really? Phobia is what you call in irrational fear. Get over it.
If intolerance is one of the main criticisms of adopting a belief in organized religion, then doesn't it follow that we shouldn't emulate that aspect?
Well I haven't got through the first half of it, but it's driving me nuts. If I hear the words "App Millionaire" one more time... I'm only dissappointed you can't throw an audiobook across the room like you can a regular book. It reads like a bad info-mercial "You too can be an app millionaire but it takes hard work and be organized...bla bla bla... If you're that kind of person you can be an app millionaire (tm)...
That far into the book and literally NOTHING that will actually help you start a business based on mobile applications.
Less fluff and more meat. And stop saying "App Millionaire." It's not a witty catch-phrase. After the first 20 times or so... It's like fingernails on a chalk board.
I don't care about your dad's business. I don't care about how you moved from construction contracting to application development. --actually I might be interested in "how" but so far all I'm hearing is "that" you did. I don't need to know what apps are, or that they're "revolutionary" beyond a really short introduction paragraph.
So far the only "how" you have in the first third of the book is that you drew out on paper what you wanted your first app to do then hired someone to make it. Gee I would have never thought of that!
What I DID want to know was something that would help me with ideas I might not have thought of... not "be organized" and "work hard" with long drawn out anecdotes to support those obvious-isms.
I find the book patronizing and devoid of any real substance with the words "App Millionaire" thrown in ad nauseum. Now maybe the details are in the last half of the book but I honestly can't get through the first half, I'm sorry.
Very well spoken.
The words or sentences containing "App Millionaire"
The reading was good. But this kind of patronizing "self-help" book is just not useful to me.
