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.
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!
Being that this is a translation from Polish (Lem's native language), this is an excellent read/listen. Definitely worth the credit!
