The history, I did not know how far back we used algorithms, especially in the stock market.
The narrator for the story was a perfect match.
This is my first.
The future, and how our lives can be made better.
I would give a repeat listen again in one years time to compare the rate of technology to his predictions. Especially now that he is working at Google. I have read or listened to all of Ray's books, and while I think some of his predictions are a little grandiose, many are spot on.

Laughed and didn't cry but definitely choked up.
I recommend this read to everyone.
