This could be one of the most important books to be written in the first 10 years of the 21st millennium. It does get technical at times, however, the main points are SO important that it's not vital that one understand all the technical info. These theories give our race (the human race) new hope in many areas that I personally felt hopeless about before hearing the opinions and theories of Dr. Kurzweil. He may not be right about everything, but his track record has been excellent. This is not a "quack." They don't put quacks on the cover of 'TIME'! GET THIS ONE!
Either this guy, (the author) is a nut or a visionary. 'Maybe' you owe it to yourself to hear what he has to say and make your own decision. I want to convince myself that he is a "nut" and that we can just roll along living life, and not need to worry about the government destroying the economy. However, now that I have read this, (and I almost wish I hadn't) I've got this little voice telling me to start stock piling food, guns and gold. DAMN! Try to get past the beer drinking and gun obsessiveness. Honestly, I don't know if this is a "good book." (probably not in the classic sense) but it sure managed to unsettle me. Didn't want to read it, but was compelled to read till the end. Not entertaining, more a compulsion.
