  • Margot - Why I love QuickBooksI have been using QuickBooks for more than 10 years. My CPA has been
    delighted. Before that I created a DOS program that was very cumbersome.

    Now I can go to any item, vendor or account with ease and pull up the
    information I need.

    Thank you QuickBooks for MAC

  • Melissa Darnay, author of Dating 101 - Don't Be Single Without ItMany well-educated experts can't get their information across to the average person, because their writing style is more effective as a sleeping pill than a self-help manual. Leil Lowndes does the seemingly impossible in this book-she intertwines behavioral studies in a fun-to-read book. Nodding off is never an option, as she takes you on the exciting journey of capturing your quarry. And unlike some "experts" who only deal from their own personal experience, Ms. Lowndes constantly cites unbiased studies to back her claims.As an author and an avid reader, I love her use of language. "Hunters and Huntresses pursuing pedigreed prey should move differently from those stalking a wild cat. The polo-and-port set has a very different body language from the bowling-and-beer crowd." Her ability to paint a vivid picture and her use of alliteration makes her as much an expert with the English language as she is with relationships. As a dating expert myself, I am giving her the highest compliment when I say that hers is the best dating book on the market (aside from mine, of course!).Bottom Line-don't be single without it!
  • Michael Meadon - A must read...Clay Shirky is one of the most insightful analysts of the internet and how it affects society. His book, "Here Comes Everybody" is an extension of his previous arguments that the internet drastically lowers transaction costs thus greatly easing group-formation and collective action, which in turn erodes the "institutional monopoly on large-scale coordination" (p. 143). Prominent themes include the mass amateurization of publishing (and how this causes big problems for traditional publishers because the one-to-many pattern - broadcasting - is being replaced by a many-to-many pattern), the end of professional filtering ("publish, then filter", "failure for free"), and how the web eliminates the technological barriers to participation, which means it's no longer the case that small things get done for 'love' (non-financial motivations) and big things for money. It's now possible to do big things for love - like writing the largest, best and most comprehensive encyclopedia in history. Also important is that the distribution of attention, participation and contribution on the web follows a power-law distribution and not the familiar normal distribution (see Shirky's original essay on this).

    I very highly recommend the book; indeed, I'd say it should be required reading.
