Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming One of the World’s Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself

Rich Roll is an animal.  This is a triumphant story about how a man goes from awesome, upside down and then starts to find ultra.

Let’s put it this way – he, in seven days, runs 5 Iron Man triathlons.  Unreal…great story.

The Art of War

This is one of those books you just remember when you need it.  There are so many principals which apply to everyday life and life when things get stressful.  Sometimes when I read it – I cannot believe the main text was first captured over 1000 years ago.

The Art of Deception: Controlling the Human Element of Security

I will not be surprised if you have never heard about Kevin Mitnick, he was the first hacker who was jailed for his activity.  Mitnick was put in jail because the government, the police and the public had no idea what it was he did, what he could do or how computers work.

This book has Kevin story – but it also talks about hacking in general.  One of my favorite stories is when Kevin tells a bank officer he can hack his back.  The guys disagrees – and Kevin proceeds to put virus infected software on a few thumb drives and then tosses them around the parking area and the place where people smoke.  Soon people find them and then, take them in the bank and plug them into their work computer…boom – access.

One of my favorite non-fiction books of all time, a must for the computer nerd you know.

iWoz: How I Invented the Personal Computer and Had Fun Along the Way

There are two sides to every story – and iWoz is the Yin to Steve Job’s Yang.

Steve Wozniak is everything a geek dreams they could be.  The dude built a computer for the science fair before computers were even a thing.  The story about his joke calling line is awesome.

The guy dreamed up and though of the personal computer – without his vision…we may not have them yet today.

Steve Jobs

If you’ve ever wondered how an empire can be thought of, built, torn down and built again – please read this book.  You may have seen the movie – but this is a great biography about on the legends of technology.

The details revealed in this book show all the different sides of Jobs and really gives insight to why he was the way he was.  (Link to iWoz – Steve Wozniack’s Biography)
