Being that this is a translation from Polish (Lem's native language), this is an excellent read/listen. Definitely worth the credit!
If you have read Daemon and Freedom(TM) - or even if you haven't - you are going to love this book. Everything he has come up with is plausible and believable, to the point that I keep looking over my shoulder for these things!
If you haven't seen Rob Reid's TED talk on Copyright Mathematics it might take a while to understand the tone of this book. John Hodgman was a great choice to read this, his flat humorous tone drives the story from funny to downright hilarious!
The Authors didn't get too carried away with advances in tech, it was easy to believe that we could be seeing this in a few decades. It was fantastic listening to the familiar voices from Battlestar Galactica tell these stories.
