Great great writing. This book discusses one main task of human: the construction of meanings for their life. There are many narratives that move around, evolve, or disappear throughout time. Even though Ansary is extremely knowledgeable, his summary ...more

A relaxing read. I wish there were more illustrations when discussing body parts. Bryson has such a calm and witty voice. You will want to nestle into a warm soft blanket then listen to his stories and jokes.

I was not as mesmerized as I had hoped. The writing is still beautiful, as usual.

I certainly wish I had read this book while in high school or college. We grilled all the basic technical parts of calculus and yet unsure what was the point. Well certainly you don't need to know it if you do not work in science and research. Life ...more

A quick read that can be done in a couple of hours. If you don't work with math much this would be very lovely and enchanting. If you do, it's still cute.

Ehh, don't be deterred by my 2 star rating. This book is short and may still worth your time.

I will break down the book into roughly 4 sections: 1) AI & its beauty, 2) its ugliness 3) the author 4) the author's proposed solution.

Well, I like it, but should I recommend it?

It really depends. If you are just curious intellectually then go ahead and check it out. It's not very easy though, after all you are trying to learn quantum physics. But it's manageable. That's an

Friedrich Schiller
“The concrete life of the individual is destroyed in order that the abstract idea of the whole may drag out its sorry existence.”
Friedrich von Schiller

Guy Gavriel Kay
“I love the way folktale and fantasy tap into the roots of story telling. The paradox, for me, is that by moving a story into the fantastic we can actually bring it closer to the reader, not move it further away. It is more than an escape. When we read of the only daughter of a fisherman (or the third son of a woodcutter) in a fairy tale, we are all that character. That's the underlying pulse beat of such tales. Using the fantastic as a prism for the past, if done properly, removes the tale from distancing specificity. It can't just be read as unique to a time and place; it is universalized in interesting, powerful ways. When I wrote Tigana, about the way tyranny tries to erase identity in conquered peoples, the fantasy setting seems to have done exactly that: I'm asked in places ranging from Korea to Poland to Croatia to Quebec, "Were you writing about us?"

I was. All of them. That is the point. The fantastic is a tool in the writer's arsenal, as potentially powerful as any there is, and any tool we have works to the benefit of the reader.”
Guy Gavriel Kay, Under Heaven

John Lewis Gaddis
“As my former Yale colleague Rogers Smith has put it: "Elegance is not worth that price.”
John Lewis Gaddis, The Landscape of History: How Historians Map the Past

Neil Gaiman
“How can you be happy in this world? You have a hole in your heart. You have a gateway inside you to lands beyond the world you know. They will call you, as you grow.”
neil gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

A.S. Byatt
“How true it was that one needed to be seen by others to be sure of one's own existence.”
A.S. Byatt, Possession
