This clever book provides insight and illuminating contrast that reveals the simplicity in our lives. Author Kevin A. Hicks deftly intertwines the story of two people who live in an imagined reality in which there is no standardization. In my work as an aerospace systems engineer I deal with standards routinely, and I found plenty of interesting history about the technological advances we take for granted, and how they were made human-friendly. The imaginary lives of Mike K. Oss and Connie Fusion reflect real frustrations engineers deal with in trying to work in industries where standards don't exist, or are still evolving.

Our Easy Life will be entertaining and informative for anyone with an interest in technology, both simple and complex, where it came from, and the chaos and confusion that would ensue if every invention were equally successful.

This was an enjoyable read, and it is indexed for those who will appreciate the history it contains.

The tiny font size chosen for this book made it extremely difficult to read. Although the book may have been worth reading I chose to give it away to avoid the struggle.

I got some early peaks at the draft. Looking forward to the finished copy. Congradulations for getting this published.
