If any of you would like a review copy to post in a blog or on Amazon.com, send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org with "One Click" in the subject line and I'll send you one. Doesn't have to be a glowing review, just an honest one.
Jeff Bezos is one of the quirkier CEOs in the business. Brilliant, but a tough micro-manager. Great financial manager, but known to pay appalling wages to the lower echelon who work under tough conditions. Incredible strategist with a tendency to come up with some of the most bizarre and controversial patents in technology. My book arrives Oct. 27. Read the WSJ excerpt.

Hell, I don't know. But the New Scientist has an interesting series of articles about time. Need a free registration to read the articles.
