About the Author:

Gerald M. Weinberg (Jerry) writes "nerd novels," such as The Aremac Project and Mistress of Molecules—about how brilliant people produce quality work. More of his novels may be found as eBooks at . Before taking up his science fiction career, he published books on human behavior, including Weinberg on Writing: The Fieldstone Method, The Psychology of Computer Programming, Perfect Software and Other Fallacies, and an Introduction to General Systems Thinking. He also wrote books on leadership including Becoming a Technical Leader, The Secrets of Consulting (Foreword by Virginia Satir), More Secrets of Consulting, and the four-volume Quality Software Management series. He incorporates his knowledge of science, engineering, and human behavior into all of writing and consulting work (with writers, hi-tech researchers, and software engineers). Early in his career, he was the architect for the Mercury Project's space tracking network and designer of the world's first multiprogrammed operating system. Winner of the Warnier Prize and the Stevens Award for his writing on software quality, he is also a charter member of the Computing Hall of Fame in San Diego and the University of Nebraska Hall of Fame. His website and blogs may be found at http://www.geraldmweinberg.com.

Review:

I liked how all the chapter titles were movie titles, and the characters' stories were slowly woven together--Reilly
I'm looking forward to the 2nd book about the Stringers--Releanna
Great read. Definitely will reread--Wilson
The actions of the group are very believable--Green
I recommended to any who'd like a different approach to superpowers--Cat

I absolutely love it. It's well worth the read!--Sally WolfA delightful book that kept building both in story and in character development--CalderoneAlways kept me wondering what would happen next--UnidragonYou may not be able to stop reading once you start--AlvarezThe main characters are special--in the best & worst meaning of the word--Deibel

Worth the read and I enjoyed the different perspective from someone who is handicapped. The author wrote in such a way that I found it easy to get into each character-U.A.Welder Focuses on a group of young adults who were born with deformities but also special powers-Unidragon
