If you like to read about Donald Trump and his administration, you’re in luck because it seems as If a new book is published every Tuesday. Ranging from books about Trump’s love life, his family and THEIR love lives, and clear to the damage Trump is doing, Donald Trump has been a godsend to American book publishing industry. This Tuesday Dan Alexander’s new book, “White House, Inc: How Donald Trump Turned the Presidency Into a Business”, is published. It is a well-researched and written.... (More)
Jocko is the real deal! His podcast is great, and he is a very squared away guy. This book is written in short bursts that you can read each day, and provides motivation to "get after it"! I gave a copy to all four of my adult sons to provide a "road map" from themselves and their children.
NOTE: Amazon is de-platforming companies, who they previously hosted on their servers, for no valid reason other than "virtue signaling" and promoting a Leftist agenda. I will be phasing out my purchases.... (More)
In this book Mr. Williams spends some time talking about the publishing of Phantasmagoria, Sierra's excellent horror game and how horror wasn't a fit with their other games at the time and it's great foreshadowing for the last third of the book. For those of us who weren't employees but instead kids who grew up on the Sierra games of old, the demise of the company in the late 90s was an absolute mystery.

This is an interesting story (though often not the one that the author thinks he is telling). However, it is in desperate need of an editor, as it is all over the place and the writing is... well, the writing is in desperate need of a professional editor. (More)
We all know the stories from the headlines, but the author gives a framework to them: creating a tapestry from the individual threads.
It’s a very sobering read, and quite well written.
I must admit that I really didn’t understand how much the Big Dirty Money relies on keeping the laws in their favor.
This is a well crafted wake-up-call to the 99% of us who have been too busy working, to see the massive injustices that have been right in front of our eyes, all along. (More)
Reader: Ivy League PhD in Engineering and IT. Non-academic, half as old as dirt. Two degrees of separation from the people and events of the book. Kindle version.
1. The second half of the book is tight and fact-rich. The information technology content throughout was well-written and at just the right level for the audience and topic. The author tried valiantly, and generally succeeded, to make this important but dry topic interesting.
2. This is a gift book for the sort of person.... (More)
This book is a choppy U.S. history of the late 1950s and 1960s featuring the people and goings-on of a murky company named Simulmatics Corp. The history is interesting enough, but I have two major gripes about the book.
First, mentions are made over and over and over of “models” being developed and used, but there are absolutely no details given to help the reader understand what these models actually are and how they work (or don’t work). Without some such understanding, the book becomes a.... (More)
