First, I am not a military guy or a war monger. I simply wanted to learn. I was excited with the incredible technology being employed and its many applications. But I was also amazed at the consequences of our use of this new technology and the profound impact it has on us not just here, but throughout the world. The impact of these technological advancements not only changes our strategy for defense and war, but forces compelling questions of how we deal with this now and in the future.
I thoroughly enjoyed this rather lengthy book. But I also learned so very much. Singer did a masterful job in analyzing technology and war, top to bottom. I highly recommend this read.
While very clinical and borderline cerebral at the start, the book opened up to apply the clinical knowledge. I felt this was a huge "learning" book. All the facets of our brain that work independently and collectively to help us make all types of decisions in every kind of situation. It was fascinating to better understand how we think... how we decide.
A great read you can't put down. My only regret is the passing of Stieg Larsson and the end of this incredible trilogy and our infamous character, Lizbeth Salender.
Scott Brick does another outstanding job as a multi-voiced narrator... he's simply the best. As for the book, another Clive Cussler (and Justin Scott) work of art. Incredible research into the history of naval operations, New York and Washington D.C. in circa 1905 which are the setting for this crime mystery of the time. Interesting, suspenseful, outstanding characters (which only Brick can bring to life) and a great story to boot. Loved the book!
