Don’t worry, Mr. Brooks. Haters are going to hate.

Normally I am on a non-fiction reader. I didn’t even see the movie. Considering it has taken my this long to read the book, I mainly avoided the hype. I went into this beast with my mind wide open and...more

It has been a while since I have gone through this one, so I thought I would give it a read again since every person and their cat seem to like to compare it to what is happening as of late with the NSA, Google, Facebook, the government and other tec...more

I'll be honest, I kept putting this one off due to its length despite really, really wanting to read it. It's a poor excuse, but I take the blame for being lazy. After years of delay, I finally read (and finished) it. In short: I should have read it...more

I had a handful of friends continually tell me I need to read this book. I missed out on the whole craze but the book still seems to have legs, so when someone leant me the book I decided to give it a go.

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
