There's nothing in this book you won't find in every other book about mindfulness, but being of a very concrete mind, I find it helpful to hear the ideas in contexts that I can easily identify with.

For example, while I can read about how life is suffering/dissatisfaction/imperfection and get it on an intellectual level, I don't really apply it to myself. What claim do I have to suffering?

When I saw this book at my local library, I thought, WoW, a book about computers! Hmmmm, I guess I neglected to read the sub-title, "Ancient secrets for the creative and constantly connected."

The writing itself may not be better than three stars, but the helpful reminder--and the impact--on me warranted four.

Wisdom 2.0, buku terbitan tahun 2009 karya Soren Gordhamer ini membahas mengenai interaksi antara manusia modern dengan teknologi.

Keterhubungan dengan teknologi merupakan suatu hal yang amat dibutuhkan saat ini, tanp ...more

A good reminder about balance with regard to technology. Soren has positioned himself to be an authority about maintaining balance in corporate America with regard to technology.
