We all do that thing where we get books recommended and they sound good at the time, but sink to the bottom of your pile in favour of the shiny. So, this year, I’m going to try and get through some of the things which have suffered this fate.
The Beast With Nine Billion Feet is well worth a read. I read it as an ebook, but in paper-form, it’d be a slim volume; for all that though, it still packs in a lot of ideas about big business, bio-tech and ethics. Nice to see an author who doesn’t waste your time.
Seen through the eyes of children, I think it could be something which younger readers would enjoy, but it’s not at all condescending to the reader.
A good one to provoke discussion.
