There were a lot of battle scenes that I find hard to follow, and it ends on a cliff hanger. This suffers from middle book syndrome.

Still it was entertaining enough.

A thought provoking read about the impact social networks have on activism.

A gripping story of Elizabeth Holmes fraud and the people impacted directly. However I was irked by the authors use of "describe physical appearance", but this person was really smart.

It's as if people who aren't perfectly attractive and put together can't be assumed to be intelligent in his mind.

This was a great action packed story. Our protagonist, Hail, is well written and likable. Can't wait to continue with the series.

Another great reimagining of Greek mythology. With characters so human and real. I really loved it.

Read this if you're a woman who has ever felt thatv things need to change. Or if you're a man who wants a clearer path to understanding that women are justified in they're anger.

This is a slower Nero Wolf book and it hasn't aged particularly well. Still it was mostly enjoyable.

I'm so happy Brotopia was written. A frustrating and relatable look into the tech industry's bro culture.

Great investigation of how a company goes from Good to Great. Highlights what 11 companies that made the leap had in common. Well written and applicable to anyone who wants to work on something great.

Episodes from the lives of women in venture capital. I got emotional learning about the journeys of these amazing women.

A fun read, but it definitely does that it v was written in the 1930s

Part 1 gives a great summary of how blogs break non-news and how pr and marketing folks manipulate bloggers.

Later on it goes on to site the downfall of specifically men who were misogynists and talks about how it was soooo unfair to them. I strongly disliked the latter, but the former was really insightful.

This is a gripping read. It's flawed in many ways, but also action packed.

I didn't know what to expect when starting this one, but I enjoyed it.

I would have liked a bit more understanding of many character motives than we were given though.

A great exploration of how normal people enable extensive evil just by going along with things and not asking questions.
