This book cleverly weaves real scientfic truth about Robots with common causes for Alarm bred into us by movies such as the Terminator and shows you how in very practical terms how to survive malicious robots, who want to harm you. The book is very comprehensive.
Its a practical way to engage with your technology loving older children if listening to this book together. I particularly loved the clever suggestions such as how to stall a malicious robot by asking it what the largest prime number is.
The narrators voice is brilliant. Super deep, non emotive and fitting to the story at hand, while never changing tone even during potentially lethal descriptions of killer robots.
My son and I laughed for hours to during night drives.
There is some heavy technical content in the book whcih I had to explain to my 12 year old, with many references to historical robot related movies and robot stereo types.
great read for all of those who never made it to space and people working in intense situations. useful lessons from "the man" on why he became so successful. resonated with me a lot. book makes you wish you could be stuck beside chris on a plane stuck on tarmac or intense situation. you'll want to listen to this over and over.
great read. really good voice.

How to get my kids to do chores.
Very clear voice and expression that draws you in. One of the most pleasant voices. Extremetly well researched and presented.
Great Narrator. Doesn't tell you what to think, just presents the facts. Apple Loves may not like this book as it paints a darker picture of your beloved demigod.
Easy on the ear. 9/10 for narration
Somewhat comprehensive overview of Jobs life. I never listened to the famous book by sir whatever, but this book is definately a mind opening view into Steve jobs and Apple and important events in technology that shape our current ecoverse. What a rich whinny tosser Steve jobs was. (Woz) A fortunate set of circumstances and meetings and his drive to get whatever he needed, allowed him to force some of the brightest people on the planet to create a computer so smart, even dumb people can use it.
Long live the mighty Droid.
Makes science fun
if you like technology, education and multidisciplinary studies and how things may shape up in the future, this book is bought to you by the man on the inside - the Media Lab director. Makes you dream about the future and the greater good for humanity.
The dramatisation kills this. SO much background noise you can't hear or understand the person talking. Very poorly done by the BBC. I expected much much more.
The dramatisation was terrible. The main problem was the mixing of the background sounds with the foreground speaker. The foreground is a blur. IF you concentrate in a quiet place you might be able to follow it.
I would have hired a competant sound mixer
We only got a hour in and couldn't bare to finish it,
