Fascinating history of the people and science behind the detection of gravitational waves. Surprisingly exciting stuff.
I don’t understand how so many people read this book and were able to get past the actual sentences. This may be a great book for lovers of time travel stories, but for lovers of writing it falls short.
Reading “The Reason I Jump” is the best way I’ve found to improve one’s understanding of how a person with Autism thinks and feels. It’s an amazing perspective, described well, by 13-year-old Naoki.
Neil Gaiman’s love of reading and writing is fascinating and infectious. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go to the library.
I didn’t realize I was in the mood for a 500+ page “space opera” until shortly after starting Leviathan Wakes. A little mystery, a little horror, a little action thriller, and a lot of fun.
Magic vs Technology what’s not to like?
“Messy” is filled with contrarian examples and anecdotes disputing the modern idea that the only way to be productive or creative is by sitting at a spotless desk in an empty room while Jonathan Ive stands behind you whispering design mantras in dulcet tones.
On the other hand, a spotless desk works wonders for some people.
If ever a book was meant for me, “The Revenge of Analog“ is it.
David Sax dives into the ongoing resurgence of analog: film photography, paper notebooks, vinyl records, even education. I believe all of these things matter, and that their continued (and growing) use is for the better.
Sax perhaps sprinkles everything with a bit of unnecessary hyperbole, but he’s obviously excited about the same things I am, so I’ll forgive the excess.
“The Revenge of Analog” is a fun and informative read for anyone even remotely interested in the life or “real things”
I enjoyed Simple Rules. Some of the examples were useful. A Simple Rule I already follow is “Don’t keep reading if it seems to be repeating itself”. This book suffered from that problem, so I skimmed the second half and that’s that.
