Reviews of books that I have read or referenced on the podcast, and whether or not I recommend them.

Book Review | Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

WARNING: This book contains high levels of nerd porn. If you are easily offended by awesome 80's pop-references, video games, classic John Hughes films or are prone to getting nerd boners lasting longer than 6 hours, I highly...

Book Review: Bossypants (audiobook version)

Generally I don't consider listening to audiobooks to be the same as actually "reading" a book, however Tina Fey's endlessly entertaining "Bossypants" is definitely an exception to the rule by easily surpassing the written version.

Book Review | The Martian by Andy Weir

From the very first line, Mark Watney's glibness in the face of starvation, asphyxiation, and freezing to death on Mars is what made The Martian such an enjoyable read and one of my favorite books this year.

My Kindle Has Become Self-Aware…

Upon the recommendation of a listener, I review "Daemon", a book that is well-suited and a must-read for those who are interested in technology, computers, the internet (aka: our dependence on them), gaming and...

Book Review | The Hit by David Baldacci

Highly-skilled assassin, Will Robie, is back and better than before in The Hit, a taut and exciting thriller in which Robie has to hunt down one of his own.

Book Review | ARMADA by Ernest Cline

Armada is the story of Zach Lightman, a gamer who is called upon to use his gaming skills to save the world from alien invasion. Not without its faults, Armada is a fun ride by Ready Player One author, Ernest Cline.
