The Illuminatus Trilogy

Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson

( 1975 ) ISBN: 0-440-53981-1

This book turned all my beliefs on end, shook them loose, and put them back together again all wrong. It was a wonderful mind f*ck reading experience and I highly recommend it to everyone. Very few books can change you, this is one of them. I've read this book several times now and each time I get a bit more out of it. It is philosophy and political revolution thinly veiled as science fiction and it works because it's entertaining not preachy. You have to have an open mind going into this, if you don't you won't get past chapter two. Which I honestly believe the authors intended, to keep the awesome ideas in the rest of the book away from the eyes who would misuse them.

Best After

College

Leviathan Wakes

James S.A. Corey

The first book in the Expanse series by James S.A. Corey. It bills itself as a space drama and I delivers on a massive scale.

Wool

Hugh Howey

For once science fiction that happens under ground instead of outer space. A pretty good book that focuses more on people and less on technology, almost to a fault. Absolutely earns the right to be in the top hundred science fiction books ever written.

Ready Player One

Ernest Cline

If you want to relive the 80s read this book. It even has virtual reality.

The Pleasure Of My Company

Steve Martin

Who knew Steve martin wrote books? Even better, who knew they were a pleasure to read. This book is light and feel good.

Git Is Really Difficult To Use

Nov. 18, 2017

I'm coming to terms with the fact that git ( not Git Hub ) is very hard to use. At first I thought it was just hard for novice users. Then I I thought OK this isn't so bad, now I'm more convinced than ever that git is just hard to use.
