Je me replonge dans les classiques de mon enfance. Quelle histoire passionnante. Le lecteur est bon mais la narration parfois un peu monocorde. Néanmoins une recommandation.

All our lives are constrained by limited space and time, limits that give rise to a particular set of problems. What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favorites is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, but they are not: computers, too, face the same constraints, so computer scientists have been grappling with their version of such problems for decades.

A comprehensible explanation of algorithms. I really appreciate the chapter on algorithms game theory. I want to learn more about the subject.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I just love the way Paul writes and speaks.
Examples are close to everyday life.
It's a bit of fresh air.
I just feel better after listen to it. And guess what, it's normal...

What about Paul McGee’s performance did you like?

He doesn't read a text. He lives the text: you feel the energy, the emotions.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not moved. Just the fact that he is normal and sometimes want to squeeze someone else balls. But oops sorry, I talk to much
