This book is for people who have no technology knowledge. For those of us already in the know or who seek new info this book won't be enlightening. It's not a bad book, I enjoy that it address a variety of topics but it's all base level info.

While I certainly enjoyed some of the concepts that Schmidt and Cohen present, I found myself constantly wishing more concrete examples of how the current tech is evolving would be used to back up their ideas. Several sounded off-base and were just plain hard to believe, several seemed to provide a roadmap for criminals to follow to make our lives miserable, and with the recent revelation of the NSA's PRISM program in the news, several ideas discussed have already proven to be outdated or have set back the digital age pretty dramatically.
Unfortunately, I just didn't find the information put together coherently, and found the book itself more focused with current politics and more mundane aspects of today's technology. I guess I was looking in the wrong place for inspiration on what the future holds.
My advice, pass on this one and don't wonder "what if?".
The narrator made some major gaffes.
In one section he refers to NATO's activities in Siberia, which clearly should have been Serbia - this was one of several gaffes. This particular one really needs to be fixed by Audible. I'm amazed that the narrator didn't realize the error and even more amazed that the producer/editor didn't catch it.
