5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book, 24 Jan 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Singularity is Near (Paperback)
My heart sank when I got this book. An American book on science that had that many pages must be written by someone who got paid by how many times they were able to repeat themselves. This has been my experience with books much thinner than this. Yet I was quite wrong. There is very little repetition and it is all appropriate. The book is very well written with careful attention given to the order in which ideas are presented. It is an astonishingly wide ranging book and essential reading for anyone who is interested in where technology is taking us. How the author found time to write it, along with perfoming all his other duties beats me. He must be one hell of a guy!
The only thing I take issue with him on, is... no I won't spoil it for you! You can make up your own mind. Just read it!
