    "This is a philosophy reference book that I found disappointing. It discussed some of the issues from various philosophers, such as Descartes, but I found flaws in the logic and reasoning presented in this book. I also found it boring to read. So overall this book did not add to my knowledge of philosophy as I was hoping it would do. It just irritated me and to be honest it was hard to even finish it. "

    "This book was such an interesting read because it's on a topic I didn't even realize was so important. The most interesting part is on "brain training" apps and the dubious people who peddle the apps, trying to push the information on neuroplasticity to people without really knowing anything. People are so eager for self-improvement that they fall for it, which I've totally done before too. Whereas this book actually focuses on neuroplasticity and how our brains change over time."

    "Neuroplasticity (MIT Press Essential Knowledge) by Moheb Costandi is an excellent book on Neuroplasticity, and is an exciting overview of the topic, for the general reader just delving into the subject. It explains how all of our brains are different and that Neuroplasticity is at the core of what makes us all human."

    "I've been an avid reader of non-fiction books from the MIT Press since my college days and ended up giving "The Internet of Things" by Samuel Greengard a try. I'll say that it is fairly well written but it really doesn't have as much depth as I've grown accustomed to from the MIT Press. It is sort of fluffy and light on substantial evidence and almost seems like they wrote it to just make a few pennies. It gives you a decent general overview of the so-called "Internet of Things" but not much more than that and I honestly cannot recommend it if you're interested in the topic."

    "It's an absolutely terrifying though to think you're being recorded at all times, weather it be video, microphone or both. This book is one I would consider essential if you're even the least bit interested in knowing more about the technological age in a pros vs. cons sense."

    "I have a computer science degree and felt that Cloud Computing (The MIT Press Essential Knowledge series) is a book more suited for the layman, as opposed to someone with a technical background. I found the book really simple and easy to understand. This is a great book for someone that is interested in the subject and want to get a basic understanding of the subject, however, I was expecting something with more teeth to it from MIT Press."
