Master entrepreneur, original hip-hop mogul, and New York Times best-selling author Russell Simmons shares the most fundamental key to success - meditation - and guides listeners to use stillness as a powerful tool to access their potential. In the New York Times best-seller Super Rich, Russell Simmons proved that to be rich is more than just having money in the bank - wealth is about balance, joy, and conscientious living. In Success Through Stillness, Simmons shows the connection between inner peace and outward success.

When the obituary of legendary computer game architect Matthew Sobol appears online, a previously dormant daemon activates, initiating a chain of events that begins to unravel our interconnected world. This daemon reads news headlines, recruits human followers, and orders assassinations. With Sobol’s secrets buried with him, and as new layers of his daemon are unleashed, it’s up to Detective Peter Sebeck to stop a self-replicating virtual killer before it achieves its ultimate purpose - one that goes far beyond anything Sebeck could have imagined.

The story got off to a strong start, modulo a ridiculous "how to execute a date rape" scene. As I got three-quarters of the way into this book, I kept asking myself "How can Suarez tie all this stuff up?" When I got to the end, I got the answer: "He couldn't." Worse, he didn't even try. Lame attempt at a cliff-hanger. Left me completely unsatisfied.
