Internet of Things, Thugs, Truth

Rated 4.88/5 based on 8 reviews
Similar in concept to Eat, Pray, Love (a travel memoir with underlying personal and spiritual experiences), this career memoir takes you through the author's experiences interacting with her company's CEO while coming to grips with some behind-the-scenes and surprising spiritual encounters. Gutsy and starkly honest with lots of dialogue this is a great summer read. More

About Patricia Brogdon

I am an Indie author (independent author) who loves to write and who cares about making a difference, in whatever way that looks like. I do not want to waste my life doing things I think "I should be doing," to please people I think I should be pleasing! Ugh! Life is short, we get one shot. My biggest inspiration comes from people who live their lives from their authentic selves. They make no apologies, they just live it, they just do it. It doesn't matter what it is, it only matters that they are being who-they-really-are, and that is the biggest inspiration in anything that I write. Brave souls around me inspire me to produce what I write... we are all in this together!

Patricia Brogdon delivers an enlightening and thought-provoking look at the relationships between people, the internet and God. Brogdon brings her extensive experience, wit, humor, and spirituality together for an unforgettable look at her life and career. The internet has become a major part of our lives and connects us in ways never dreamed possible before. With that comes a loss of privacy, threats, and abuse. As Brogdon so elegantly puts it the light will shine on the darkness and there will come a day when these dark sides of the internet will no longer exist. This is a thoroughly entertaining, illuminating, and inspiring book. I highly recommend it!

Came across this book by accident, saw that it was free, so thought, why not? I downloaded it on my lunch hour at work. My plan was to read a chapter and if I liked it, read the rest when I got home. Well, before I knew it, I was halfway through the book and my lunch hour was over! THIS BOOK IS SOOOO GOOD! I keep telling people about it. I finished the book as soon as I got home from work, and got in my sweats. I even skipped dinner so I could keep reading, which I never do! I felt so good after I read it, like there is more out there than what we experience with our 5 senses. It’s given me a whole new outlook on life. LOVED IT!!!

I don't usually write reviews but felt like I should since I didn't have to pay for the book. At first I thought it was gonna be a dud for 2 reasons; the intro compares it to eat pray love, which i can't stand, and 2, my girlfriend made me read it. (We have opposite taste in both books and movies) This book was really good tho. Sounds cliche, but i couldn't put it down once I started it. And did i mention free? Great read.

I highly recommend this book - it is like nothing I've ever read before. There are so many facets to this author's story, from personal experiences, to career nuances to glimpses of the inner-workings of a deeply spiritual heart and mind. I was deeply touched by the experiences she shared in the chapter, God in the Bog, because it shed light on something I have been grappling with my whole life and really put things into perspective for me. Parts of this book made me burst out laughing, the author has such a great sense of humor and a flair with prose. I could not put this book down! Bottom line-excellent book, a must read, you will love it!

I found it very forthright and enlightening. I will tell you that it will influence the way I look at a lot of things in life going forward. I think that is the highest accomplishment for any author. You have a unique ability to put on paper what seemed to me like we were just having a conversation at the kitchen table. I wish you and your family all the best going forward

This book was AWESOME! I couldn't put it down! It was so engrossing, it made me laugh and cry and flowed so easily. I could relate to so many of this author's experiences which made me feel validated and like I'm not alone. The parts I couldn't relate to were still so interesting and intriguing, and whetted my appetite to want to know more...this author should keep writing! I'll be first in line when the new book comes out, lol!

A wonderful and exciting read! Pour yourself a cup of coffee, curl up in a comfortable chair and enjoy this "cannot put down" book. This is a true story and a look into how the author balanced her personal life with her career in the exciting and demanding world of the internet. Brogdon shares the challenges she faced with the dynamics of coworkers; the rewards and opportunities of being introduced to many people of different cultures, religions, and lifestyles and how she grew in her own spiritual life. Sometimes sad, most often uplifting, you feel her optimism of science and spirit being united. Definitely five stars!!
