Read from August 15 to September 20, 2010

Genre: Nonfiction

I barely made it though listening to this. It’s long. It’s incredibly repetitive, and there was barely anything that wasn’t obvious; job competition is now world-wide, since many jobs can be done from anywhere. Yes, I knew that. I’ve done that. The advent of the World Wide Web (e.g. Netscape) changed business, science, and day-to-day living. Well, duh, I lived though that. I am not sure why this book was touted as brilliantly insightful, except possibly that these observations may not have been as blindingly obvious in 2003 as they are in 2010.
