BookReview - Project Bodi: Awaken the Power of Insight

"Project Body - Awaken The Power of Insight" - after reading the blurb and checking cover design can give you an impression of the futuristic sci-fi novel. Though it is futuristic fiction, it is more targeted towards learning. I appreciate author Hosein's creativity to write a boring considered (by youth) in such a wonderful strong format. This book reminded me of Goal by Goldratt who has delivered complex concepts of the supply chain in a nice story.

Book Blurb
In 2029, Google is the most dominant company in the world. Dr. Bethany Andrews heads the company’s Artificial Intelligence Department and leads Project Bodi, the world’s most advanced Augmented Reality smartglasses that will one day revolutionize the tech space. Her lead programmer is Austin Sanders, a 26-year-old psychonaut who loves Burning Man and electronic dance music. Together they embark on a life-changing journey to design the product of the decade, and along the way they discover the mind’s inner source of insight and innovation.
The book is written in the year 2029 where AI has taken a considerable role in human life. Google has taken the first position leaving back Apple and other mobile manufacturers. Our story starts on Google campus. Our main protagonist is Austin Sanders. Austin was a young programmer at Google. Austin was lost in his own world of Music, Booz, and Drugs. His life was shaken when he was transferred to probation period due to his negligence and irresponsibilities towards his job. His boss Dr. Beth introduced him a mindfulness - mental peace application for his betterment. Using this app, Austin was introduced to meditation and power of the subconscious mind. He started garnering his new learning. Apart from Austin, CEO of the company Mr. Shiv Patel and Dr. Beth also played a good role in the story. Shiv was worried about the future generation's mental peace, their use of social media and drug abuse. He was preparing a book to guide such people through the power of the mind.

As I mentioned earlier one can easily identify flow in two segments
  1. Pure Self-learning Material - Shiv's Book Progress
  2. Learning Via Story - Austin's Part.
Each part is properly arranged wonderfully to keep user stick to the book. I liked following things about book
  • Mind Peach Exercise
  • Google Vision's Futuristic Features
  • Social Issues Discussed due to technology
A good read for people above 15+ age. Talking about ratings
  1. Cover - 4/5 (Lot better than previous edition's cover)
  2. Title - 3.5/5
  3. Content - 4/5 (For exercise part)
  4. Characters - 3.5/5
  5. Overall - 4/5
