Early Reader-Reviews of Borg Like Me


The early reader-reviews of BLM are starting to come in. The book is at the printer. As soon as it’s in-hand, the pre-order pricing (with free shipping and free ebook version) will end. Get it cheaper while you can.

Review snippets:

“It’s a big ol’ silky smooth slice of brain pie with emotive crumbles. An honest treasure. Jump on it!!”

“It’s a neat trick you’ve pulled off. A book with a title that references becoming machine, but yet is bursting with such humanity. Also a clear example of “show, don’t tell” writing.

“[Your] book, entertaining as it is, represents an important infusion of authentic spirit into conversations around technology and culture. A reclamation of our essential humanity.. Also, a great time capsule of the Weird Wide Web and its antecedent impulses.

“This book is a song of hope.”

“You have, with Borg Like Me, firmly installed yourself alongside the many wondrous and life-affirming icons that pass through my life. It is a place you rightfully deserve. The writing is whimsical, informative and sincere… But, what bubbles up through it all is your boundless love of living and your radiant, inquisitive mind. You are an authentic human being, the kind that inspires people like me to take heart and leap into the void.”

“I’M DYING, THIS IS SO GOOD! I’ve enjoyed every story I’ve read (I only have a few to go). This is something I will be sharing with a lot of friends. You overachieving ass. I love you!”

“…Borg Like Me felt deeply personal, and I was humbled to be with you as you travelled through these pocketed excerpts of your formative experiences. I’ve loved every word so far.”
