Twice during the non-stop reading of this book, I had to flip back to reaffirm the 2003 publishing date. Back then, I would've thought M.T. Anderson's satirical story of a consumeristic dystopia, both imaginative and amusing. The story, seen through the eyes of a teenager who's inklings of a broader, deeper world beyond the artificially enhanced enclosures of future mid-America as well as the late-teen consumer behavioral expectations constantly feeding his thoughts via chip implant, come too late for one coming-of-age in a society that had, long before, subjugated itself to the force-"feeding" of corporate mass-marketing. As it were, I started (and finished) this book on a mid-January day of 2013, a time when nearly every trans-national web retailer (Amazon, eBay, Google, Rakutan, et al) and their subsidiaries where going "all-in" on buyer behavior software and profile databanking, I found this book to be frighteningly insightful and its author; mystically intuitive. I believe I'll purchase the signed edition from the seer himself and send my old copy (via snail mail) to the editorial staff at "Netted by the Webbys". Still reeling while holding a thumb skywards,

Harnessing the Wheelwork of Nature: Tesla's Science of Energy by Thomas Valone

There are some books that are so understandable they must be owned. Then there are some books that are so incomprehensible they must be disowned. This book is the only one I've ever encountered that is incomprehensible and yet, most certainly, MUST be owned.
