What a deception! This essay about how technology is shaping and revolutionizing the world is so superficial... It's really a shame, because it could have been soooo interesting. I found it also too positive, not stating the obvious dangers of technology, and of its effects on the world.

I read this three times and then wrote it in my joural so I could keep it forever! I love that words give me the feels...

Finished it today. I agree with lots of things he's saying about schools here in Germany. Basically it's a mess. But I still feel like he focused too much on the higher education part and forgot that we need carpenters, electricians, glaziers, etc.
All in all though I agree that we need a change and the schools he envisioned sound fun!

I have, of course, read dozens of quotes and selections from Walden because one can't avoid them, and I even started the thing a few times, but I can't quite get past his self-importance and his neckbeard. Still, I think I ought to read the whole thing someday.

Scochrane26 I read it this summer. You‘re prob better off just reading the important quotes. The rest is about ponds. 2d
OriginalCyn620 Haven‘t read this either! 2d
Crazeedi A note is on it's way to you!😊💞 2d
ImperfectCJ @Scochrane26 I read up to the detailed bit about how awesome he is because he has last season's suit design made for himself. Ponds might actually be more interesting... 2d
ImperfectCJ @Crazeedi Hooray! I need to get on top of my replies! 2d

On Being and Essence | Saint Thomas (Aquinas)

I'd have to really study this, preferably in a class or with an advisor to get everything out of it. That said, this philosophy has already infiltrated my reasoning and will affect the way I consider being, essence, and categorization in the near future.

1) Yes. I start other books, often ones that I then procrastinate on by starting yet more books. Visit Litsy. 🙈🙈🙈

2) At 3 ch/30 pp/30% if they are very boring/off-putting. When the urge to whack the author/characters over the head with the hardcover edition (in large print) gets too strong. When the inaccuracies outshine the plot/characters; founding member of the #HistoricalFictionInaccuracyAnnoyanceSupportGroup

TheSpineView Hate inaccuracies!😬 Thanks for playing! 📚📚📚 3d

As I said on Goodreads, don‘t be put off by reviewers who complain that this book “jumps around.” Craig isn‘t writing some high level Wiki, he‘s demonstrating connections between disparate topics and teaching the reader how to navigate an enormous, complex subject in very few pages. 💡💡💡💡💡(Image is from the book‘s own last page.

Also, have I mentioned how much I love The Good Place? 😍😍😍

Ddzmini Yes 🤣🤣🤣👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 3d
