Spot-on satire, but I wanted more [it's too short]!

I definitely expected MUCH more. I finished more than 350 pages [out of 456] without being 'thrilled' about anything. It somehow felt 'predictable' [and I cannot imagine using this word for a Dan Brown book]. I was expecting riddles, symbols, codes, ...more

هذا الكتاب هو حتماً أجمل كتاب قرأته هذه السنة، ومن أجمل الكتب التي قرأتها من فترة طويلة.
لغة د. وليد سيف في الكتاب (كما في مواضع أخرى) أخّاذة! مذهلة! مدهشة! ونادرة في هذا العصر. كنتُ أتوقف بعد قراءة بعض الصفحات كي أستمتع بجمال اللغة التي كُتب بها النص

A thorough introduction to Data Science concepts and techniques. While this book, as the name implies, targets business professionals mainly, I personally think it is best to read it after [or while] getting your hands dirty with data science problem ...more

“I still only knew a few words of Arabic. I couldn’t really imagine learning the language. Spoken, it sounded just like the written script appeared - musical and flowing but totally incomprehensible, and so I surprised myself when I correctly recognised sounds that bubbled up. Mabsoot (happy) was one of my very earliest words because everyone always asked me if I was. I had a bigger problem with the words for brother-in-law and donkey. They sounded the same: hamar, I wrote in my memory for both of them. I tried to hear the difference, and I tried again when I learned there were three different ‘h’ sounds. I talked about my brothers-in-law as ‘Mohammad’s brothers’ or as Salem or Ibraheem, and I tried not to use the word for donkey in case I called it a brother-in-law. This was a real problem later when we had our own donkey and we let it off to graze and I had to walk the hills looking for it, asking if anyone had seen it. It was years before I found out that the difference was nothing to do with the ‘h’ at all, but in the roll of the final ‘r’, and brother-in-law didn’t have one. He was a hamaa.   Every”

“Big Data processes codify the past. They do not invent the future. Doing that requires moral imagination, and that’s something only humans can provide. We have to explicitly embed better values into our algorithms, creating Big Data models that follow our ethical lead. Sometimes that will mean putting fairness ahead of profit. In”

“My coup came years later in the narrow Italian Hospital street in Amman, where the balconies are so crowded with second-hand clothes that they seem to touch. I was back in western clothes, once again a foreigner. A young trader with a barrowful of socks was calling out, ‘Joozeen jerabat ib dinar.’ When he saw me glance at the barrow, he called out in English, doubling the price, ‘Two pairs of socks; two dinars.’ This attracted more attention so there was quite an audience as I replied, not missing a beat, ‘Ya’ani, itha bishtiree bil arabi ahsen li.’ (So if I buy them in Arabic I’m better off). Even the barrow boy laughed and I felt quite at home.   Opposite”

“Building resilience depends on the opportunities children have and the relationships they form with parents, caregivers, teachers, and friends. We can start by helping children develop four core beliefs: (1) they have some control over their lives; (2) they can learn from failure; (3) they matter as human beings; and (4) they have real strengths to rely on and share. These”

“When I wrote Lean In, some people argued that I did not spend enough time writing about the difficulties women face when they don’t have a partner. They were right. I didn’t get it. I didn’t get how hard it is to succeed at work when you are overwhelmed at home. I wrote a chapter titled “Make Your Partner a Real Partner” about the importance of couples splitting child care and housework 50/50. Now I see how insensitive and unhelpful this was to so many single moms who live with 100/0. My understanding and expectation of what a family looks like has shifted closer to reality. Since the early 1970s, the number of single mothers in the United States has nearly doubled. Today almost 30 percent of families with children are headed by a single parent—84 percent of whom are women. I”
