2005 Year of the Rooster Book Review

Having read a number of great books in 2005, I was mean to write a book review for each of them. Afterall to be a blogger is to write a lot. Sadly My plan of writing thoughtful essays didn't really happened. I'm still doing lot more reading than writing. If this is too ambitious, perhaps I can write some capsule reviews? But months go by and I still haven't got to do it. Toward the Christmas holidays, I said let me at least do a year end run down. But now the year end has also passed. Fortunately there is the procrastinator's redemption: the Chinese New Year is still a month away! In the next few days, let me do a run down of the great books I have read in the year of rooster.

First of all, I'd start with a review I did written. Full review is post on Baypiggies and below is the the summary.


Hackers and Painters: Big Ideas from the Computer Age
by Paul Graham

...this book is a fun and insightful reading. For nerds, it gives a little bit of ego boost. But more importantly, Paul is a great mentor. He encourages us to nurture our creativity and unorthodox thinking. He believes being smart matters, that hackers can take on big guys and make a difference.
