Thanks to Mike Gunderloy for a nice review of my book: “I’m sure someone has written the thousand-page tome about usability, but I’ll take this one instead.”

Burningbird: “Why the blues, PHP, the other languages asked. All the languages that is but C, because all C ever said was ‘bite me’, being a rude language and hard to live with, but still respected because it was such a good worker.”

Herbert Meyer in the National Review: “Our intelligence services failed because their leaders and their top-level analysts just weren’t smart enough to figure things out early enough to make a difference. They had lots of energy and dedication, to be sure. What they didn’t have enough of, was brains.”
