the distinction between semantic and non-semantic causation


Which scene was your favorite?

the part about the wood-chipper---funny!


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I thought it was good, but I wouldn't say that I had an 'extreme emotional reaction' to it. It's a book about computers.


Any additional comments?

Well done, but, quite frankly, I think the author should write material of a more literary nature, because his current fare, as represented by this book, is a bit heavy for most audio book listeners.
