Customer Review

on 14 March 2014
Within the first few pages I knew that this book was going to be wedged firmly on my list of favourite books ever. This is the kind of book that makes you act completely irrationally if you ever meet the author. Rest assured I will become a bumbling idiot if Robin Sloan ever crosses my path!

Sloan clearly knows exactly how to entice and entrap his readers. Whether you are an established bibliophile, a tech-savvie genius or simply a struggling soul lost in the job market, this book will enchant you. Sloan strikes a perfect balance between teaching you all about the history of books and publishing, Google, the future of technology and those life lessons we always crave from a good book, and creating a down-to-earth and relatable narrator. Similarly, he creates a balance between beautifully sculpted sentences and funny chat. On the one hand it is easy to read and on the other hand, you want to slowly absorb every word and sentence.

This is the story of Old Knowledge and new possibilities and teaches us that while today’s job market is vastly different from traditional job paths and the road to success is rarely easy, the modern career path leads to dreams in a way that they rarely did before. Buy it, Read it, Love it!
