You are on the verge of an adventure unlike anything you’ve ever experienced


This book provides a unique perspective on world history that you will not find elsewhere. Some of what is written here fly in the face of convention. The reason is quite simple: We don’t know everything there is to know about our past. Some of the evidence may remain missing forever. It may have been destroyed long ago. All too often the conquering society rewrote the history concerning those they conquered. New regimes erased the records of earlier rulers of whom they disapproved.

Here is a sneak peek of what you'll find in this book


  • Prehistory: The Mysterious Unknown
  • The Bible and Egypt
  • Mesopotamia: Part of the Fertile Crescent
  • Indus Valley
  • China & Japan
  • Greece & Middle East
  • Americas
  • Carthage, Rasenna & Roma
  • Middle Ages
  • Renaissance
  • Age of Reason
  • Modern Age
  • And more!
Behind the writing of this book is the intent to provoke the mind into considering the existence of that undiscovered country called “the unknown.” Within that great unknown are things that may shock and dismay the traditionalist.

Computers from 0 to 1: Part 000: Binary, Transistors, and Logic Gates


Read More...
When I developed an interest in computer hardware as an engineer at college, I was frustrated that there was no neat, layman-friendly package out there for me to get a broad, conceptual understanding of the subject area.

That’s what drove me to write this book.

This succinct book, first of a series of eight, has turned the “meant to be” rigorous study of computer hardware into a light reading experience. I have thoroughly simplified my accumulated knowledge from my computer engineering degree for you to simply enjoy while relaxed on a couch. No homework, no exams, no professor speaking incomprehensible gibberish.

By the end of this highly condensed book, you will have already leapfrogged the majority of the “normal” people out there in terms of understanding binary numbers, transistors, and logic gates – the very building blocks of our greatest innovation. Heck, if you feel like it tomorrow, you could slickly join the two computer engineers in front of you smugly tossing around a bunch of jargon while waiting in line for coffee – “You know, you could implement the two’s complement simply by using the NOT gate and incrementing by 1.”

Imagine just how awesome that would feel.
