Book Recommendations

I wanted to make a recommendation but instead this is going to be a book warning. I'm not recommending "JPod", Douglas Coupland's follow-up to his popular 1996 "Microserfs." Actually, I'm not sure it was intended as a direct follow-up, but it follows the same format.

I loved "Microserfs". I read it several times when I was in my early 20s and thought the book was great because it connected with me and my lifestyle. However, "JPod" couldn't get me past page 50. I could have cared less about the characters and thought Coupland was trying to take every piece of modern tech culture and cram it into 300 pages.

Not worth your time, in my opinion!
