Price: 4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars When is part 2?, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great, enthusing.

But where is part 2?

That's a 1.0 product :-)

Maybe the iOS years?

Or expanding on the values?

That money is a consequence of building great things, not a goal?

5.0 out of 5 stars myth busting, uncomfortable, challenging, beliefs shaking, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Babel library is such a fine example, though the computer part should have either been left out, or approached (and deep dug into) from the "consciousness levels" perspective, not the VM's which is misleading. (the gulf between the concepts manipulated by a Lisp program as opposed to an assembly program is so wide and so easily categorised that leaving this out is a missed opportunity).

If your grey matter still has a few idle neurons, you should read this book: once your core beliefs are shattered, you won't see reality the same way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be mandatory reading for every art major, lawyer or politician, 2 April 2013
This review is from: The Black Cloud (Kindle Edition)
Music doesn't depend on sound to be appreciated,
Consciousness, information and individuality are connected in surprising ways
Science experimental nature seen at work in a most brilliant way

All reasons you won't be able to put down this book until the last sentence, and what a sentence!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as the other reviewers would let you beleive!, 10 Nov 2002
Yes! This book is definitely for beginners! With such a title, you'd expect so called experts not to fall into the trap of buying a beginner's book ;-)
My main gripe is that it doesn't devote enough space to intraday spread- betting, nor is it very eloquent on betting-strategies. It does come up with a few simplifications of known chart patterns (double top, cup, flags, etc...), but fails short at applying them convincingly to intraday charts, most of which are too volatile for those pattern to apply in a meaningfull way, and this, Mr Vintcent forgets to warn you about.
In all, a somewhat good introduction, I guess, at the opposite end of "Technical Analysis of Stock Trends", 8th edition by Edwards and Magee.
