This book was recommend to me by a friend and I thought I would give it a listen. Personally, I did not enjoy it due to it feeling that the books was just an outlet for the author to brag about themselves and share the "I don't care about anything that isn't important to me" attitude.
The book lacks reflection, depth, and insight that would help the individuals trying to take a message away from the book and instead is lost in non-relevant side stories of the author.

I have been on a spree of biographies and books focused on Bells Lab and "A Mind at Play" provides great insight into the amazing world of Claude Shannon.

I would highly recommend this book to others, just to showcase one of the most brilliant minds of the field that most have probably have never heard of.

After watching a few TED talks and lectures from Matthew Walker, I decided to listen to this book. Walker provides great insight into the importance of sleep and why our fast-pace society needs to recognize its positive attributes.

I've recommended this book multiple times after reading it and will definitely be gifting it as a Christmas present this year.

I really enjoy Jaron Lanier's thought process throughout this book and the ideas he presented. Introducing micro-payments based on the usage of code sounds like a great idea in theory but the implementation and how quickly the code is cycled through or refactored would cause issues in balancing the economy he is seeking to fix.

Overall, a different perspective on the tech industry while recognizing its flaws and trying to provide a few solutions to fix its current state.
