Add my review for Dear Valued Customer: You Are A Loser
In addition to being one of the country's leading technology experts (he's coauthored more than 30 books), Rick Broadhead has had a lifelong predilection for stories of the strange-but-true genre. In Dear Valued Customer: You Are A Loser, he combines his two abiding passions to present an exhaustive, fascinating, and hysterical collection of technologically enabled blunders, bloopers, and mishaps. Heard the story about the bank in Chicago whose computer made overnight multimillionaires out of hundreds of its account holders? How about the man in California who was informed that he owed 39 trillion dollars in overdue library fines? Or the woman in New York state who claimed she was seeing the names of dead people on her caller-ID box? The Most "F" words in a Disney movie, The Most Embarrassing Open Mike Gaffe by a Politician, The Strangest Discovery by an Airport Metal Detector (a woman discovered she had a surgical retractor in her stomach)... these and more than one hundred other bizarre stories will keep readers uproariously enthralled.
