    For over three decades, the great inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil has been one of the most respected and provocative advocates of the role of technology in our future. In his classic The Age of Spiritual Machines, he argued that computers would soon rival the full range of human intelligence at its best. Now he examines the next step in this inexorable evolutionary process: the union of human and machine.

    Sean Gately says: "Great Idea, terribly slow and painful listen"
    "Excellent Book For Philosophers and Techno Geeks"
    Overall

    This book is super. While I think he gives the impression that everything that can happen that is beneficial to humanity will happen, which is proving to be incorrect six years after publication. He discusses a lot of fundemental questions, its not a science fiction novel full of action and adventure, but it is excellent heavy duty, educated, food, for thought if you want to think about the future and what it could, in theory be. Additional note, you do need an education to listen to this book and not have it go over your head. I have a third level education but I only just managed to understand it, I think I will listen to it twice.
