book review: [Hiltzik, 1999] Dealers of Lightning - Xerox Parc and the Dawn of the Computer Age


You may have realised now these are not book reviews, more a list of books I've "given a go" and document some notes here as to not read them again by mistake. Anyway, the PDF format I got of this glitched to hell listing to on Moon+ Reader. I think it was because it was doing some kind of convert on the fly OCR which resulted in huge pauses and I think, bad word conversions, at times it sounded foreign.

book review: Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers - Robert M. Sapolsky


Good but not great. Worth a listen but for me it's not something that's going to change my life as no one likes stress to begin with, so if we could just poof it away then we would. A lot of information of why stress is bad but I can't remember any techniques or "life hacks" to help reduce the day to day burden.
