Welcome to 2050 - what the real 2050 could be like. This book is about what life will be like when "cyber" is prolific, self-aware, and in full control of large-scale industry, service, and transportation. There will be fascinating changes in how humans live and what they think about.

What disappointed you about Visions of 2050?

I have over two hundred audio books and although the quality of recording can be different from book to book, not one is as foul sounding as this turkey. Verging on the unlistenable, this audiobook must have been recorded underwater. Even after adjusting the EQ quite a bit, I could not make this sound reasonably good.

Has Visions of 2050 turned you off from other books in this genre?

I would not necessarily avoid books that predict the future of the world, I would avoid this.

Would you be willing to try another one of Roger Bourke White Jr.’s performances?

Mr. White sounds like a poor man's Rush Limbaugh, a very very poor man's Limbaugh. He sounds delighted to be reading his book but I was quite undelighted.

Any additional comments?

This book is unnecessarily political. When the author reads the section of the book that deals with what he calls T.E.S., he is talking about "the Entitlement State." This is just what the doctor did not order after the 2016 election. The author sounds like a warped Limbaugh and he also spouts the philosophy of Mr. Limbaugh. This was the worst audio book I have ever owned...complete torture.
