A lot of this stuff is already quite visible to the general public anyway, just watch the ads on TV for home security systems as an example. People are more aware of rapid tech changes coming at them than they were in the 90's when the PC and the internet first appeared.
The book is well written, researched and easy to read and for this I do recommend it for anyone wanting to begin understanding some of the changes headed our way, however they will need to connect to many additional resources in addition to this book in order to have a more comprehensive and current understanding (kurzweilai.net is good source, it has current tech articles, including M2M, and it's free!)
The writing itself is engaging and easy to understand, while very informative. I also enjoyed the way they weaved quotes from industry experts to validate their points.
I for one am looking forward to the day when my car drives me autonomously to my office, while my house knows to reduce energy consumption while I'm away and start the dishwasher later in the day, and my watch reminds me it's time to have a solid, carb-full lunch because I'm scheduled for that 30 mile bike ride later in the afternoon! Thank you to both authors for painting that picture of the possibilities with this book.
