This book, although written in 2015, is outdated. By a lot.
Do the Work is honestly the worst book I’ve ever read. Worse than The Charge. 👎🏽💩
There were bits and pieces in here I could really get behind as someone sort of new to personal branding (totally different field however). SWOT and other terms were really helpful and new.
This book presupposes that there is a master algorithm to be found in the field of Artificial Intelligence. That while computers will become anything but sentient, they will essentially make half the workforce obsolete. The author's laissez faire attitude about this bothers me.
This book is a great primer on Keynote, Apple's answer to PowerPoint.
Cal Newport lays out his arguments for 'going deep' — uninterrupted, long, and intense periods of focusing on the work that is going to further your goals quite well in this book.
A rag tag group of young kids from the west coast create the technology that shapes our world today.
I read the description of the book and had my doubts-- it was a $5.99-er from Audible which should have told me all I needed to know. I had $6 to burn so I bought it.I shouldn't have.
A long listen but sweeping history of the technologies we use today
This book is poorly written and in terrible need of a competent editor.
David is the host of Mac Power Users along with Katie Floyd and in my opinion carries the show. So when I saw that he had some books on the iBookstore, I knew I had to buy them.
The beginning of the book is quite good- we get a sense of urgency quite quickly which does the novel some good as in the middle and towards the end the plot begins to sag.
'The half-life of love is forever'- that line describes this entire book of threaded stories.
A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don’t know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other.
First off, I want to say I was familiar with Matt's work coming in, having hooked up on the social sites (we writers be pimpin' yo!) and downloading a free sample of his short story The Collectors which was probably the best short story I've read in aa while- then came these stories.
This novella captured my attention from the first page and never let go of it.
I don't give a lot of five stars. But this one deserved it, if only for the poetic flow of her prose, the imagery.
I find that most people, when reading are reading to escape the mundane and heavy existence reality brings. You're not going to escape into any of these stories.
I rarely give a book five stars but as a writer I just had to.
A review of this book by a much younger, much less jaded me.
