    New York City, the near future: Mitchell Zukor, a gifted young mathematician, is hired by a mysterious new financial consulting firm, FutureWorld. The business operates out of an empty office in the Empire State Building; Mitchell is employee number two. He is asked to calculate worst-case scenarios in the most intricate detail, and his schemes are sold to corporations to indemnify them against any future disasters. This is the cutting edge of corporate irresponsibility, and business is booming. As Mitchell immerses himself in the mathematics of catastrophe - ecological collapse, war games, natural disasters - he becomes obsessed by a culture's fears.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A re-write ....


    What was most disappointing about Nathaniel Rich’s story?

    The story is just soft, in one paragraph you go from one life changing decision to another without any progression or sequencing.


    Have you listened to any of Kirby Heyborne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No... The performance was good.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.
