Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Steven Kotler crafts a near-future thriller about the evolution of empathy.  

Hard to say when the human species fractured exactly. Harder to say when this new talent arrived. But Lion Zorn is the first of his kind - an empathy tracker, an emotional soothsayer, with a felt sense for the future of the we. In simpler terms, he can spot cultural shifts and trends before they happen.  

It’s a useful skill for a certain kind of company.  

Arctic Pharmaceuticals is that kind of company. But when a routine em-tracking job leads to the discovery of a gruesome murder, Lion finds himself neck deep in a world of eco-assassins, soul hackers, and consciousness terrorists. But what the man really needs is a nap.  

A unique blend of cutting-edge technology and traditional cyberpunk, Last Tango in Cyberspace explores hot topics like psychology, neuroscience, and technology as well as ecological and animal rights issues. The world created in Last Tango is based very closely on our world about five years from now, and all technology in the story either exists in labs or is rumored to exist. With its electrifying sentences, subtle humor, and an intriguing main character, listeners are sure to find something that resonates with them in this groundbreaking cyberpunk science fiction thriller.

The Future Of Empathy

A fun ride into a techno futuristic thriller with wonderful characters who provide color and fast moving creative images. Unlike Kotler's other non-fiction works, he plays with the emerging world beyond cognitive powers and more about the environment where we live more connected with creatures around us. Kotler always has amazing research and the main protagonist shares this is knowledge bombs. What happens next.?...😁

Eigenartig, aber sehr gut. Dem Sifi-Outsider, wie ich es bin, aber dennoch zu empfehlen. Eine spannende wie unglaubliche Zukunft, auf die man sich freuen kann!

Reads like a Gibson knock off

This story rips elements from William Gibson's Blue Ant trilogy. The voice work is excellent but being very familiar with Gibson's style and books the over all story was ruined as my mind kept making direct connections between near identical content.
Forced pattern recognition does not a good story

Uber male, techno romp

Something doesn't quite work - from the very beginning, the writing style, the over-use of tech gadgetry, the predictable villain profile, the machine-gun narrative, the alpha male silliness. Sorry, not for me ... maybe I ventured too far off my my normal path and others will love this story.
