Jennifer's Review
It was a very good book, very interesting to read. 
It’s about Google in the far future. Google has many people working on a new project that they call Project  Bodi. It’s a pair of smartglasses that is similar to a smartphone, but it’s a portable device that you carry with you, and it has many apps. 
Austin is put in charge of the project, with his boss Beth giving him deadlines and checking on his progress as he works. 
Does he make it? Do the apps get approved? Who works on it? Does the project succeed? 
This is a very good book that has really cool exercises that talk about the mind and how it works, your ego, your emotions, and how to control your thoughts.
So cool to read and try the exercises at the end of the book. 
4 stars
