5.0 out of 5 stars
A Believable Future, 12 Mar. 2010
I had encountered the concept of the Singularity in Science Fiction,eg Accelerando, by Charles Stross, but this book gives plausible arguments for it happening in the next 30 to 40 years. The author hopes to be around then and consequently to live for ever. Unfortunately for me I'm a bit too old at 74 and so may miss out.
In view of the potential significance of the changes to humanity discussed in this book, it should get a wider readership.
The book is a bit long winded in its arguments but the message can be picked up and appreciated even if you skip some bits.
