This is one of his earlier works but it stands the test of time and demonstrates true Hiassen genius. Well worth a credit (or even real money!)
This is a none-to-subtle rip off of The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks, which I cannot recommend highly enough (see also World War Z).
That being said, it's well-read, well-written, and successfully sneaks interesting information about robotics to the listener.
The book is ten years old although the audio format was released recently. Since this is a book on contemporary journalistic trends and corporate influences on the news, its age renders it obsolete.
I was looking for a tidy little thriller for entertainment and found a gem. It's a fast paced listen and, while I guessed the "bad guy" fairly early on, it still had plenty of twists and turns that made it entertaining to the very end. I particularly liked that there was a minimum of "soap opera" tangents into the personal lives of the characters.
I was disappointed that there are no other Chris Mooney titles to go to next but when there are, I'll be giving them a listen too.
