To create a new book in Drupal 8:
I get to have another operation (surgery) next week, but I still hope to have the next version of my book on Scala and functional programming available by the end of the month.
Besides books on sports, the first book I remember reading that wasn’t assigned to me by a teacher is Man’s Search for Meaning, by Viktor Frankl.
Last call: My new book, Learning Functional Programming in Scala, goes up to $30 tonight (August 1, 2017).
After I sold Mission Data in 2007, I also sold most of my belongings and drove to Alaska, a state I fell in love with during several vacations many years ago. As a result of that moving process, I sold over 400 books, keeping only the 100 or so “best” books that would fit in my car.
Forced to think about keeping only ~100 books, I learned that my favorite business books are:
“You must concentrate upon and consecrate yourself wholly to each day, as though a fire were raging in your hair.”
Your attitude is such an important topic, I want to end this book by getting you to look at yourself the way other people see you.
“A man of knowledge lives by acting,
not by thinking about acting.”
“You will not be punished for your anger.
You will be punished by your anger.”
As you can tell from this book, when I was young, I was a pessimistic person, but as I grew older, I worked hard to change my attitude into a positive, can-do person. If you think you can’t change your attitude, I’m living proof that you can.
“It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes,
and an even wiser man to learn from others.”
When I returned from Alaska in 2008, I lived with a friend for a little while, and she made me watch a TV show named Project Runway. She didn’t really have to try too hard; I watched one episode with her, and I was hooked.
“Practice your kicks 10,000 times.”
