  • Book Review: Armada by Ernest Cline

    Book Review: Armada by Ernest Cline

    Do not expect the book to be serious or high brow. It’s silly, predictable and satisfying. Very satisfying if you are a geek that enjoys pop sci fi and fantasy culture. If you enjoyed that aspect of Ready Player One, then you are likely to enjoy Armada too. If that’s you, go ahead and read […]

  • Goodbye Apple

    Goodbye Apple

    My main computer was an Apple MacBook Pro for about 8 or 9 years. That is, until last January, when I said good-bye to Apple. It wasn’t easy, but the last iteration of the MacBook Pro is terrible. I’m not against the touch bar. I think keyboards need more innovation and I applaud the effort. […]

    Book Review: My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell

    This is the most British thing I ever read. It’s quite funny but in my usual fashion, I have lots of questions about the reality of these people. ★★★☆☆ Buy My Family and Other Animals in USA Buy My Family and Other Animals in UK Buy My Family and Other Animals in Canada

  • Book Review: The Rise and Fall of American Growth: The U.S. Standard of Living Since the Civil War by Robert J. Gordon

    Book Review: The Rise and Fall of American Growth: The U.S. Standard of Living Since the Civil War by Robert J. Gordon

    I read it as an audiobook and it doesn’t make a good one. It’s full of figures, numbers, charts, diagrams, etc which get lost in the audio version. This might cause a bias on my review. The book feels thoroughly researched. I caught a couple of small errors but most time when I thought “What […]

  • Book Review: Opening Skinner’s Box: Great Psychological Experiments of the Twentieth Century by Lauren Slater

    Book Review: Opening Skinner’s Box: Great Psychological Experiments of the Twentieth Century by Lauren Slater

    This book is very entertaining and contains a lot of details I wasn’t familiar with but to be honest, not many that are important in my opinion; so, if you are as familiar as I am with the great psychological experiments, it’s just entertainment (and I’d say good one). I really like that she managed […]

  • Book Review: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson

    Book Review: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson

    I feel there’s a lesson in this book I could apply to make my life better but I’m having trouble distilling it. I’m going to re read it after reading another book. The writing style was surprising but it shouldn’t have been based on the title. It was a fun entertaining read if nothing else. […]

  • Book Review: Overcoming Anger And Irritability by William Davies, James Le Fanu

    Book Review: Overcoming Anger And Irritability by William Davies, James Le Fanu

    It’s a very short book and it feels very actionable. I have the impression it applies more to people that have bouts of anger than someone who has an annoying constant background level of anger. ★★★☆☆ Buy Overcoming Anger And Irritability in USA Buy Overcoming Anger And Irritability in UK Buy Overcoming Anger And Irritability […]
