Anyone know the author or title of that book where a programmer turned real life

#1HydroCannabinolPosted 6/30/2012 3:03:42 PM
situations into like code.. It's hard to explain but I saw it once and I really want to show my family.

Basically it was a famous programmer who wrote an entire book on real-life situations but he sorta wrote it in 'code'.

For example, how to talk to women. He basically put stuff like 'tell her this '**' if the reaction is this, then do that. If the reaction is this, then do that"

Kinda like an if/then statement. It's really hard to explain but if you know what I'm talking about it should ring a bell... any help would be appreciated!

Thanks.

It kind of sounds like it's a book full of state machine diagrams or something for everyday life. I don't know what the book is but it certainly sounds interesting.

Yes, it's VERY interesting! Apparently my mother has seen it on TV a long time ago when I told her about it and now I can't stop thinking about it..
