Audiobook: Start with why – Simon Sinek

Since I spend 2x30minutes on a daily basis walking to work, I get to spend some time with myself and listening to music all this time daily just didn’t cut it. Audiobook are great sources of entertainment regardless of what type of books you consume, the format puts books into a slightly different context which I find interesting and also pretty convenient. So for this reason I will be doing some audiobook recommendations from now.

The platform I use is Audible on my android phone. In case you’d like to try it out, there is a free audiobook on signup if you support my favourite programming podcast, Programming Throwdown: http://www.audibletrial.com/programmingthrowdown

And now for the book…


Book review: Rodney Brooks – Flesh and Machines: How robots will change us



I have recently read Flesh and Machines: How robots will change us from Rodney Brooks (wonder why I chose this blog title?) and had great time with it. If I had to describe the book with one word: inspiring.

Before ordering it from Amazon.com I read some review about it and I got a little disappointed because a lot of them said that it’s nothing concrete, too “light” on this topic.

I have to say that I do not regret having bought it. It’s a really inspiring book that’s about the early days of robotics written by one of the most powerful people in this area.

I recommend it to anyone who already worked with robots or studied AI&Robotics deeper.
