Review:

A database programmer's formula for leading an efficient and righteous life. Abbasi (Oracle SQL in 10 Minutes, 2007, etc.) presents God as the supreme Progneer, a word coined out of his amalgamation of programmer and engineer. Within this concept, the universe is basically rational or predictable, but subject to a certain amount of uncertainty, or what the author calls the God factor. In decision-making, the best humans can hope for is to achieve the most optimal outcome, while accepting the fact that God might have other plans. Since all of creation is part of God s programming, when an individual optimizes his decision-making process, he or she is acting in harmony, or as close as can be humanly achieved, with the universe. According to Abbasi, the keys to arriving at the most optimal decisions are to adopt the adaptive-decision-making model he outlines and to optimize the function of the human brain by understanding how it works and by maximizing the data and processes contained therein. The pursuit of such efficiency is not for one s own sake, at least not in terms of rewards reaped in this world, but is part of following the four basic principles of a righteous life: harming no one by words or deed, practicing patience, being humble and honoring God. The primary factor embedded in our programming that inhibits us from living by these principles is our tendency to take things for granted. The author urges readers to reduce this propensity in their lives and reminds that God sees all deeds. This quick though sometimes repetitive read gives guidance in tune with today s technology-driven culture to those seeking to reorient their lives according to some basic principles. Some readers may not take to Abbasi s computer-oriented analogies, nor the fact that his exhortations toward righteous behavior are often framed in self-serving terms, e.g., points to be redeemed in heaven rather than on earth. The "great clockmaker" goes digital. --Kirkus Discoveries
