The Wired Style guide.

I picked up the Wired Style guide from the chaos that is my office. I browsed it and realised that the research I have done into Wired magazine lets me know that this style guide is too opinionated and has too many editorial inserts in what should be a more objective guide to language use. The selection of terms for inclusion in the book too shows bias for the owners and founders of the magazines favorite theories and economic philosophies. Even if I accept that objectivity is impossible I do not agree with the magazine's original team's views on economics so will not be reading much more of this book and it will go on that top shelf in my office where computer books on out of date and useless topics goes.
