About the Author

Gerald M. Weinberg (Jerry) writes "nerd novels," such as The Aremac Project, Aremac Power, First Stringers, Second Stringers, The Hands of God, Freshman Murders, and Mistress of Molecules—about how brilliant people produce quality work. More of his novels may be found as eBooks at or on Kindle. Before taking up his science fiction career, he published books on human behavior, including Weinberg on Writing: The Fieldstone Method, The Psychology of Computer Programming, Perfect Software and Other Fallacies, and an Introduction to General Systems Thinking. He also wrote books on leadership including Becoming a Technical Leader, The Secrets of Consulting (Foreword by Virginia Satir), More Secrets of Consulting, and the four-volume Quality Software Management series. He incorporates his knowledge of science, engineering, and human behavior into all of writing and consulting work (with writers, hi-tech researchers, and software engineers). Early in his career, he was the architect for the Mercury Project's space tracking network and designer of the world's first multiprogrammed operating system. Winner of the Warnier Prize and the Stevens Award for his writing on software quality, he is also a charter member of the Computing Hall of Fame in San Diego and the University of Nebraska Hall of Fame. His website and blogs may be found at http://www.geraldmweinberg.com

Reading Gerald M. Weinberg's Aremac Power: Inventions at Risk was like a return to the golden age of science fiction, when we all believed that science and scientists were good and, if we were just smart enough, technology could solve any human problem. Of course Weinberg has updated the themes to fit today's world and its problems.

The book provides a fast-paced follow-up to the previous book in the series, The Aremac Project, but you don't need to have read book one to enjoy this one. Coupling Theoretical Physics, governments' need to control technology to their advantage, the culture of Navaho reservations, and the ever-seething turmoil of West African states, Weinberg takes you on a rip-roaring ride across the world as the band of scientists responsible for the memory-reading Aremac struggle to maintain ethical control of `the monster' technology they've constructed.

I really enjoyed this book. It's a follow up to the book "The Aremac Project" but I read them out of order. The author does a good job of giving enough information on the events of the previous novel that I didn't feel lost at all and was sucked in right away by the challenges the characters faced and the cool ideas surrounding the Aremac itself.

Some of the science takes a little suspension of disbelief, but that's true of a lot of science fiction. No one really understands yet how memories are exactly processed and stored, so there's lots of theoretical lee-way and the tech used here explores one path. The relationships between the characters, as well as their relationships with technology and their cultures, are also well-developed. This was a very enjoyable read and the pacing was spot on.

Gerald Weinberg is a great man, who wrote lots about software and more recently, began writing novels. The novels involve people in the technical world -- and the rest of the world as well. Great ideas and great characters in the novels - a great read!

This book has thrilling plot, great details and rich language. Unfortunately, English is not my first language, so last two book's features became disadvantages for me :( After straggling to keep up with main line and trying not get drowned under details of characters' feelings, I gave up.
Hope your English is better and you'll experience beautiful world of this book :)
