Book review: Time out of joint by Philip K. Dick (3/53)

Time Out of Joint by Philip K. Dick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I finished this book in two days: that’s just how addicting it is.

I liked very much the frequent shifts in the point of view.

A good quick read!

Even if Godin keeps repeating the same message throughout the book, it gives a lot of food for thought.

Not talking about the WordPress Meetup Milano that I co-organize since March 2015.

It was fantastic.

But being so active is no easy task, and requires a lot of energy and attention, so you end up ignoring other aspects of your life.
