Writing this review without giving away any of the plot is hard. I am going to try anyway, because I really liked this book. This book takes a surreal view of life. One in which the future is obvious, but not clear. You keep expecting something spect ...more

Not targeted towards new software engineers (which is what I am going to be). Nonetheless, there is a LOT to learn in this book. The language is lucid and he doesn't use words like "synergy" more than they should be.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“Learn to read history, get all the knowledge you can, do not frown on the anecdote, but do not draw any causal links, do not try to reverse engineer too much -- but if you do, do not make big scientific claims.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable

Charlotte Brontë
“I skirted fields, and hedges, and lanes till after sunrise. I believe it was a lovely summer morning: I know my shoes, which I had put on when I left the house, were soon wet with dew. But I looked neither to rising sun, nor smiling sky, nor wakening nature. He who is taken out to pass through a fair scene to the scaffold, thinks not of the flowers that smile on his road, but of the block and axe-edge; of the disseverment of bone and vein; of the grave gaping at the end: and I thought of drear flight and homeless wandering --- and oh! with agony I thought of what I left.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Charlotte Brontë
“I am not an angel,' I asserted; 'and I will not be one till I die: I will be myself. Mr. Rochester, you must neither expect nor exact anything celestial of me - for you will not get it, any more than I shall get it of you: which I do not at all anticipate.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Christina Rossetti
“Better by far you should forget and smile than that you should remember and be sad”
Christina Rossetti, Pre-Raphaelite Poetry: An Anthology

Charlotte Brontë
“Conqueror I might be of the house but the inmate would escape to heaven before I could call myself possesor of its clay dwelling-place. And it is you, spirit -- with will and energy, and virtue and purity -- that I want: not alone your brittle frame”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
