Latest: Book Review - Stealing Fire
I don’t know how I feel about ‘Stealing Fire’ by Steven Kotler and Jamie Wheal. It’s the sort of book you would find lurking at a store in an airport terminal. Not that airport sales define the quality of the book. I guess it is more the Silicon Valley culture that tumbles from the pages within.

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon, Lego or eBay to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So a massive shoutout to everyone that enables this place. Thanks!
