The American Revolution in Plain English By Alex, George, Hanna
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” This phrase accurately described nearly every revolution. The American Revolution was a good example of this statement. It was also, fortunately, a revolution with fairly few deaths. The Revolution ensured North American prosperity and also began a huge wave of West Atlantic revolutions. In many of these revolutions, large amounts of people died. Unlike the American Revolution, the other kings did not let go so easily, and many bloody conflicts were fought as a consequence.
I recently read the book Google It, by Anna Crowley Redding. Its theme is that success does not come from being normal or being rich, but from trying things noone has ever tried, and still have the determination to continue when others mock you. For instance, the booked discussed google’s nature as a untraditional company, meaning it does not follow normative “rules”. Google was also founded under interesting condition: It was a university project. Larry and Sergey stole computers to create Google’s server due to their small amounts of money.
I would recommend the book as it is a amazingly told story about Google and changing the world. It includes much information about the people involved with Google’s creation and also provided extremely entertaining side notes of anything from Google’s new inventions to tips on swearing in Klingon.
