Brian Christian presents to the listener a wonderfully crafted text filled with linguistics, computer- and cognitive-science, philosophy and... chess! His book presents a fascinating tale of being classified as the "most human human" in a competition dedicated to testing computers' ability to act in a human fashion. As an interested layman in the aforementioned fields, I found this book engaging, simple but not simplistic and great to listen to.
Very high - fascinating listening, perfect for in-car or in-bed listening. Short, digestible chapters
McWhorter's presentation skills are superb. He is witty, insightful and informative
