Review & Giveaway: The World is Open by Curtis J. Bonk

Have you noticed that the world is being taken over by technology? It seems like every month there is a new and amazing gadget that can do something that we would have said was impossible a few hundred years ago? Do you ever feel like you've been left behind and the rest of the world doesn't seem to have a problem keeping up with the latest and greatest electronics available? Everyone learns in differently. Some will catch on really quick while others are stuck and don't know where to turn.

If you feel this way or know someone who does, I think you should read this book. It is the perfect companion for learning about the things that may terrify you. I already know a few people who would love to get this for Christmas!
