Book Review #5: “Disunited Nations” by Peter Zeihan

Thanks to one very long internet rabbit hole, I found an incredible lecture by Peter Zeihan which changed my entire perspective on Geopolitics. Actually, it's better to say that it actually presented me with a perspective that seems more clear than any I had heard before. Peter Zeihan's premise in Disunited Nations is that the… Continue reading Book Review #5: “Disunited Nations” by Peter Zeihan

Book Review #4: “Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe” by Steven Novella

THE SKEPTIC'S GUIDE TO THE UNIVERSE started as a critically acclaimed podcast that catalogued the experiences and information of the growing community of skeptics, featuring well-know skeptics like Michael Shermer and others.This book caught me a little by surprise.

Book Review #3: “The Innovation Ultimatum” By Steve Brown

Even though this book is clearly targeted for business owners and entrepreneurs, The Innovation Ultimatum simplifies with ease the very complicated subject of emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and "the internet of things."

Book Review #2: “Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Journey” By Alfred Lansing

Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage is an insane book, and it's hard to believe that it is a true story.

What little I knew about this expedition revolved around the abandoning of the ship from which… Continue reading Book Review #2: “Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Journey” By Alfred Lansing

Book Review #1: “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” by Marc Manson

This is going to be the first of many book reviews. Anyone that knows me knows that I have always been more of a movie person than a reader, but having discovered the wonder of audio book apps like Audible, I have read more in the last six months than the whole last decade! So… Continue reading Book Review #1: “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” by Marc Manson

Human Decency Is Best Tought With Action, Not Words

If young people are just as cruel and inconsiderate as ever, I often wonder why that is. A lot can be said about hormones and peer pressure, and things of that sort. But there is an elephant in the room that adults don't like to acknowledge, and that's themselves. Teachers and caretakers of our youngest… Continue reading Human Decency Is Best Tought With Action, Not Words

The Strange And Silly Defiance Of Optimism

When I was a kid, something happened to me that left such a lasting impression on me that I wouldn't feel its effects until long after becoming an adult. I could be sitting here telling you about the many toxic people that left this small child vulnerable to becoming a truly awful individual today, and… Continue reading The Strange And Silly Defiance Of Optimism

The Morning Show Is The Best Show You’re Not Watching

Apple officially got into the content streaming game last November, and if you are not an Apple user, it probably flew entirely under your radar. Apple TV+ is a service that is modeled more off of Amazon than Netflix, making its catalogue of existing film and TV a core part of its strategy. But while… Continue reading The Morning Show Is The Best Show You’re Not Watching
