Jim Adameit is the author of ‘The Definition of Experience’, his debut corporate / technology thriller novel. Jim is a 30+ year veteran of the Contract Manufacturing / Electronic Manufacturing Services (CM/EMS) Industry – an industry which can be sometimes controversial, and always extremely competitive. He’s held global positions in project management, sales and marketing, contracts, and manufacturing operations. Jim’s confident those in the CM/EMS industry will easily relate to the business aspects, terminology, and drama – and hopeful that others unfamiliar will find this a fascinating and insightful journey into new world.
He’s now writing his second novel, the sequel to this one, entitled ‘The Definition of a Secret’, due out by June 30, 2020. Likewise, this next novel contains ‘Contract Manufacturing / Electronic Manufacturing Services’ story lines and plots – in this next case – ‘ripped from the headlines’. You’ll be surprised what Dan Gamble uncovers in this NEXT novel!
Jim’s been called “…the Tom Clancy of corporate techno-thrillers – delightfully complex and wildly entertaining.”
Praise for ‘The Definition of Experience’:
“Adameit… writes about the ins and outs of the industry with knowledge and flair, making what might be otherwise dry information come to life… the author does fine work in sketching in the characters. Each one is distinct on the page, with consistent traits and reactions… this engrossing tale delivers deep industry knowledge and rounded characters.”
– Kirkus Reviews
“The Definition of Experience‘s thriller components are on par with such authors as Crichton and Finder, who cultivate the realistic atmosphere of a business exploration, while adding elements of intrigue and mystery into the story line. This thriller is broader in scope than most, adding many elements of intrigue above and beyond the business environment of the electronics manufacturing industry alone. This lends a fuller flavor to make it a vivid, realistic read for general-interest thriller readers who may harbor minimal interest in the typical business novel, but who will relish the story’s focus on corporate espionage, situational ethics, high-level manipulation – and all within clever, entertaining plot twists…It is highly recommended reading for those seeking something satisfyingly different than so many overdone spy and terrorism novels…”
– D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
“…The plot of The Definition of Experience sizzles with intrigue and interesting characters. Author Jim Adameit creates a sympathetic and fully formed protagonist, Dan (Gamble), and the evil of the company is quite chilling in its everyday character…The best moments come at the climax. Adameit handles the closing of the intrigue with well-timed clues and revelations that add to the suspense. As the noose closes around the bad guys at Stygian, each page offers redemptive satisfaction…The Definition of Experience hands the reader a satisfying win…”
– Self-Publishing Review
“It’s about time someone wrote a novel about this industry. It’s apparent the author knows his way around a CM/EMS company. This is real-world stuff, and the notion of design engineers getting planted into OEMs and ODMs, to steal electronic product designs (and sell them on the internet) is not at all far-fetched – as it could easily happen. It probably has (or does) and we just don’t know it yet.”
