Accidental Empires: How the Boys of Silicon Valley Make Their Millions, Battle Foreign Competition, and Still Can’t Get a Date by Robert X. Cringely
Requirements: .PDF reader, 31.2 Mb
Overview: Rich in relevant, entertaining digressions, this breezy but informative history recounts how gifted, maverick "nerds," "hippies" and entrepreneurs like Apple’s Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs invented and developed microprocessors and operating systems into today’s volatile, ego-driven, highly competitive personal computer industry, in which ever-changing technical standards propel the market. Info World columnist Cringley charges that the astronomical sales of PCs ($70-billion worldwide in 1990) "both created the longest continuous peacetime economic expansion in U.S. history and ended it." While current dominance by IBM spurs competitors to further research and networking, the author predicts that by the year 2000 single chips will render today’s PCs obsolete and that of American technology only software will survive.
Computer manufacturing is–after cars, energy production and illegal drugs–the largest industry in the world, and it’s one of the last great success stories in American business. Accidental Empires is the trenchant, vastly readable history of that industry, focusing as much on the astoundingly odd personalities at its core–Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mitch Kapor, etc. and the hacker culture they spawned as it does on the remarkable technology they created. Cringely reveals the manias and foibles of these men (they are always men) with deadpan hilarity and cogently demonstrates how their neuroses have shaped the computer business. But Cringely gives us much more than high-tech voyeurism and insider gossip. From the birth of the transistor to the mid-life crisis of the computer industry, he spins a sweeping, uniquely American saga of creativity and ego that is at once uproarious, shocking and inspiring.

Accidental Feminists by Jane Caro
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 517 KB
Overview: How one generation became feminists-by accident.
Women over fifty-five are of the generation that changed everything. We didn’t expect to. Or intend to. We weren’t brought up much differently from the women who came before us, and we rarely identified as feminists, although almost all of us do now. Accidental Feminists is our story. It explores how the world we lived in-with the pill and a regular pay cheque-transformed us and how, almost in spite of ourselves, we revolutionised the world. It is a celebration of grit, adaptability, energy and persistence. It is also a plea for future generations to keep agitating for a better, fairer world.

Necessities: .M4A/.M4B reader, 215 MB
Overview: You’ve got in all probability seen it earlier than: a human mind dramatically lit from the aspect, the digital camera circling it like a helicopter shot of Stonehenge, and a modulated baritone voice exalting the mind’s elegant design in reverent tones… to which this e book says: Pure nonsense.
In a piece directly deeply realized and splendidly accessible, the neuroscientist David Linden counters the widespread assumption that the mind is a paragon of design – and as a replacement provides us a compelling clarification of how the mind’s serendipitous evolution has resulted in nothing in need of our humanity.
A information to the unusual and infrequently illogical world of neural operate, The Unintended Thoughts reveals how the mind is just not an optimized, general-purpose problem-solving machine, however somewhat a bizarre agglomeration of ad-hoc options which have been piled on by means of tens of millions of years of evolutionary historical past.
Furthermore, Linden tells us how the constraints of advanced mind design have finally led to nearly each transcendent human foible: our lengthy childhoods, our in depth reminiscence capability, our seek for love and long-term relationships, our must create compelling narrative, and, finally, the common cultural impulse to create each non secular and scientific explanations. With forays into evolutionary biology, this evaluation of psychological operate solutions a few of our commonest questions on how we have come to be who we’re.
