Machina -- my fifth book -- is free for 72 hours at Amazon

Hello old friends,

Machina is free for 72 hours at Amazon.com

I do most of my writing these days at The Strategic Review, where a free long-form essay with actionable insights from history comes out every Thursday.

Why The New Kindle is a Must-Have for Travelers

On Tynan

There are three items I own which I'll always upgrade when a significant upgrade exists: my computer, my camera, and my Kindle. Yesterday I got my new Kindle, the fourth generation one that was just released. Before I talk about this specific Kindle, I want to address some general points about the Kindle.


Some people balk at the $189 price tag of the newest 3G Kindle (which is the only one to buy, by the way). It's expensive, but only if you consider it a drop in replacement for books. I consider it $200 to ensure that I read at least 10X more than I used to.
