I bought the book assumed it is about programming your life rather than being programmed. But the book is not about it and is talking about something totaly wrong. Author assumes in digital age everyone has to learn computer programming and be able to program software. I am already a software programer and I know for fact that there is no need for every one to be programer. Computer programming is a profession like many others, it is not a life saving knowledge for everyone.
At times the many historical parallels and comparisons can be insightful and interesting. At other times the comparisons of everything to everything are completely crazy and you catch yourself wondering how you got into listening to it.
The author is no historian, that's certain and a couple of times I just wanted to turn it off in disgust. Many claims lack proper backing and argumentation. I really liked the first part though, so I kept at it. Overall, the book is still worth listening to despite its shortcomings.
