    In this audiobook, the brain behind the Kurzweil Reading Machine, the Kurzweil synthesizer, advanced speech recognition, and other technologies devises a framework for envisioning the next century. Kurzweil guides us through the inexorable advances that will result in computers exceeding the memory capacity and computational ability of the human brain.

    Ryan says: "An optimistic map to technological transcendence"
    "Kurzweil Counters God"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Only out of curiosity. It could be quite misleading to someone not steeped in faith in God.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Age of Spiritual Machines?

    The author's notion that we will one day be able to have virtual sex that's better than the real thing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    Was The Age of Spiritual Machines worth the listening time?

    Yes, but only in the abridged version. It went on far too long as it was, and speculated far too far into the future. Who can say what life will be like 100 years from now. Only God, and--by inspiration--His prophet, if God wishes us to be able to see that far into the future. Kurzweil is certainly no prophet.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot conceive of mankind ever being bested by
