5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, engaging read

I received this book at 7pm one night and started to glance at it with no intention of reading it that night. It is such a well-written page turner that it immediately engaged me to finish it that night. Jeff takes us on his journey of self-discovery and reflection in several large high-tech companies that are central to the Fourth Industrial Revolution and also his personal life experiences. It is written in a way that engages the reader to also reflect on their own life journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pageturner with highly interesting insights!

Reviewed in Germany on January 3, 2023

Jeffrey Cooper‘s book gives insight into both his professional and personal life. His story showed me once again the importance of always looking beyond the obvious. A person’s success – like Jeff’s impressive career in the hightech industry – always comes at a price.

I finished the book in just one day, because it is extremely well written, interesting and fun to read – a real page turner!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating personal account of life at the silicon workforce

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 28, 2022

There have been many books written about the technical aspects of the silicon-based computer revolution, but none to my knowledge of a personal account of the ups and downs and pressures of a high-flying career at the silicon workforce. Jeff Cooper has written such a book: a most engaging, sometimes moving, and informative account about life, both personal and professional. I loved this book.
