No Second Chance by Harlan Coben
No Second Chance by Harlan Coben
I managed to fly through this book due to the ease of writing and some spare time on my part. The plot is not difficult in the slightest to get into and I found the majority of the characters were thrown in from the off. Only a few of the main plot members were not introduced in the opening chapters which got my mind thinking of all sorts of "who done it?" permutations and combinations.
Books like these have a habit of annoying me because the issue in the story seems to be the only thing that you are told about; it's like nothing else in the world is taking place.

The IT Manager's Handbook: A Guide for IT Professi&hellip by David Millar

This book provides a huge amount of check-lists for the IT Manager to go through when running a smooth IT team. Many areas are covered such as the role of IT within the business, contract management, staff management, meetings, career progress and many more. The book is no substitute for experience but I have found it vital to try and ensure I have covered as many of the bases I can think of. Worth the investment.

This book is a gritty account of who-said-what leading up the start of war to remove Saddam. It tells of the presidents focus on terrorism and how he was driven to do what he beleived was right. All the key personalities are profiled such as Cheney, Tenet, Rice, Powell and Rumsfeld. The books shows the internal struggle and provides a rare insight into political situations that are only in the very recent past.
If you are like me and crave an understanding on the how and why not just the when then you will be thoroughly pleased with this read.
