While listening to Halley Suitt's interview with Werner Vogels, now CTO of Amazon, I was interested that her first question was: what was the first thing you bought on Amazon?
His answer was pretty interesting: three copies of The Windows NT Device Driver Book.
My answer to the same question is rather more prosaic: one copy of Outlook Annoyances. I suppose desperation must have been setting in.
Strange to buy that book (the second sentence of the review says it all). Did she cite a reason?
Me, I can’t remember, probably this one by Chris Brookmyre
