While not my usual gender for reading, when I ran across it on a Craig's List ad, I decided to skim the sample offered. Glad I did. Being an old codger, (73), I sometimes, slightly agree with some doomsayers in particular in that we, and the world, have become much too dependent on our technology. The current TV ad about a family losing their internet certainly struck a chord!
Ever forgot and left you phone somewhere????
Garth's characters in the book are also reasonable realistic without being 'Chicken Little'. Their take on politicians is also, in good part, my take on most of the politicians; esp. ones now.
With his permission, I put a small portion of the dialogue here:
- the amount of money being spent by big business is that usually when a business lays out that kind of money, they will expect something in return. They don't just hand out that kind of money for no reason. There are usually strings attached. It is a recipe for corruption. -
I've often wondered why someone spends a great deal of his or her money to be elected to a political position…….have you ever… even briefly wondered?
The book is riveting, well written tho occasionally 'long winded'.
Do I recommend this book -- YES!
I especially liked how he did the doom part - something I NEVER envisioned; but now that he's brought it to light - maybe, just maybe possible.
Tho I tend to think - possibly a two edged sword?
Definitely unique 'hack'!
