Really enjoyed this book -- pretty quick read with very precise dialogue and tackles a complicated, emotionally-wrought issue carefully and with humor. Recommend and look forward to reading more from the author.

How to Turn Down a Billion Dollars by Billy  Gallagher
Rate this book
Clear rating
Compelling recounting of a story previously only told in bits and pieces — from early days’ anecdotes to product decisions and understanding users needs, lots of great stuff in here that help paint the picture of Snapchat’s ascendancy.
Call Me by Your Name by André Aciman
“We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything—what a waste!”

J.D. Salinger
“This fall I think you're riding for—it's a special kind of fall, a horrible kind. The man falling isn't permitted to feel or hear himself hit bottom. He just keeps falling and falling. The whole arrangement's designed for men who, at some time or other in their lives, were looking for something their own environment couldn't supply them with. Or they thought their own environment couldn't supply them with. So they gave up looking. They gave it up before they ever really even got started.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
