A decade into the 21st Century and we have arrived at the future. The promise of Tomorrow. But instead we have looming energy crises, endless middle east conflict and more disappointing, we have no flying cars, Heck, for all the bright and clean future promised in 2001: A Space Odyssey, none of the real companies used as brands in the film even exist anymore. Even moving from the late 1960s to the mid 1980s, nobody makes DeLoreans (although they occasionally sell on Ebay), but cloning and tablet computing (as promised by Star Trek: The Next Generation) have more or less come to pass in this century.
Recently, someone asked Reddit for a list of the best science fiction books of all time. Being a fan of sci-fi, and wanting to expand my own reading list, I thought it would be helpful to tally the results and preserve them here for future reference. I've also included selected quotes from the comments, as well as my own notes on the books I've already read. PS: All book images in this post are copyright Amazon, and were retrieved using my Big Book Search Engine. So, without further ado, here are the Greatest Sci-Fi Books of All Time, ordered by upvote count:
Inductive charging is great, and with third-party kits, you can add cases and attachments to your device that let you charge their batteries just by resting it on a charging surface. If you like the idea of inductive charging but don't want to put a charging pad on top of your desk or table, why not build one into the furniture instead? Over at DragonDevs, one user decided there had to be a way to build the inductive charging pad into his new wall-mounted charging station.

First published Fri May 30, 1997; substantive revision Fri Apr 29, 2011 Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900) was a German philosopher of the late 19th century who challenged the foundations of Christianity and traditional morality. He was interested in the enhancement of individual and cultural health, and believed in life, creativity, power, and the realities of the world we live in, rather than those situated in a world beyond. Central to his philosophy is the idea of “life-affirmation,” which involves an honest questioning of all doctrines that drain life's expansive energies, however socially prevalent those views might be.

12 Practical Business Lessons From Social Psychology It’s been said many times that business is all about people. That being the case, perhaps we should stop reading management books for advice and start looking at social psychology. Very simply, social psychologists study how people interact with others – their families, friends, and yes, business partners.

The "Dokkōdō" [ (Japanese: 独行道?); "The Path of Aloneness", "The Way to Go Forth Alone", or "The Way of Walking Alone"] is a short work written by Miyamoto Musashi (宮本 武蔵) a week before he died in 1645. It consists of either nineteen or twenty-one precepts; precepts 4 and 20 are omitted from the former version. "Dokkodo" was largely composed on the occasion of Musashi giving away his possessions in preparation for death, and was dedicated to his favorite disciple, Terao Magonojō (to whom the earlier Go rin no sho [The Book of Five Rings] had also been dedicated), who took them to heart. "Dokkōdō" expresses a stringent, honest, and ascetic view of life. Precepts
This article reads embarrassingly like something I might have written when I was taking philosophy courses in college, and hence makes me take an instant dislike to it. But I had enough credits to walk out as a philosophy major, so here we go: 1) There is nothing inherently unanswerable about this question.

Some try to conceal the truth by wearing sunglasses of looking down at the ground. Eventually, you will confront someone and need to know if they are being honest. It may be a friend, a family member or an employee.
Aggh. Everyone showed up clothed! Once upon a time, I suffered from glossophobia.
