Publisher's Summary

Nick Hall returns in a riveting standalone thriller, set in a stunning future that is rapidly approaching. From the New York Times best-selling author whose books have been downloaded over a million times.

Nick Hall has revolutionary electronics implanted in his brain that allow him to read minds - including thoughts, memories, and even intent. He can know the passwords, future strategies, and innermost secrets of anyone he chooses, making him the most formidable man alive. But his status as the only mind reader in the world is about to change...

Soon, Hall is fighting for his life as he races to stop an unimaginably despicable terror plot. But his problems are only beginning. Because when a member of his inner circle betrays him, and the secret to mind reading leaks out, he is forced to wage war against a merciless mind reader of nearly unequaled brilliance. One who will stop at nothing to kill Hall, his colleagues, and the woman he loves. And one who is intent on ushering in a dramatic transformation of the human species - even at the cost of billions of lives.

Based on actual research on computer-assisted mind reading, Mind War is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.

Hokey narrator style

This story was definitely thought-provoking and interesting, but the narrator's hokey delivery style ruined it for me. Won't listen to another with that narrator.

Thought-provoking reading

I have truly enjoyed each of the Nick Hall books. They stretch my imagination and make me really think. I like the recap at the end of what is real and what is still just imagination. Nick is a likable, if unlikely hero. Victor is a nemesis worthy of respect, despite his flawed outlook. I love that the ending leaves just enough loose ends to leave me eager for a next installment in the series, without feeling as though I was left hanging. Overall, this is an entertaining series.

Narration Failed

This was the worst narration I have encountered in an audio book! I am amazed that this narrator has done so many books. His character voices were terrible and did not fit the story at all. The book was very enjoyable, but I will make a point to check the narrator before I buy another audio book to make sure it isn’t this one. One reviewer called it “hokie”; he or she was being kind.

Fascinating story well-told

Continuing the story of a world where certain people can read the thoughts of others, using their talents for good or for evil. Keeps your interest.

Incredible!

You can read this book as a stand alone, but believe me, you want to read Mind's Eye and Brain Web first. This is Nick Hall's third, may it not be his last, trial by fire. That being ESP. He, his girlfriend, and his team fight for our country and each other in amazing ways. But this book should also make you sit back and think about our future.

The rise of quantum mechanics and the future

Drones catching drones, mind reading, surfing the internet with your thoughts.. I loved it! The only thing..in the future..according to Douglass Richards.., Author of the book "Mind War" Privacy is BLOWN..... oh well... we all knew that was coming..right??? The information highway paved the way.. Nick Hall, the lead character in the book "Mind War, Book two in the series, is pursued by some reall bad dudes who really just want him for his mind(HA HA).. in book one ( enjoy) Nick and 26 other scientist and researchers were abducted and swept away into a warehouse where they became ginea pigs, experiments done on their minds to perfect implants that would enable people to surf they internet with their thoughts. The side affect of the experimentation was telepathic cababilities. The reserch vessel "The Explorer" was blown up. All aboard presumed lost at sea. The plot has many twist and turns, but the amazing part of the story is how science fact meets science fiction and is so magically delivered,
So what is real and what is not?
Will we be able to one day surf the web with only our thoughts ? Will there ever be such a thing as computer assisted mind reading and telepathy?
Will companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, be able to utilize technology that analyze every keystroke we make, every item we buy on the web?
Will their ever be such a thing as "Snapshot Spectacles" that have the ability to video and record everything and send it all right up to the cloud?
Will be able to wear contact lenses that record everthing we see?
Will we be able to have brain to brain interface, with people able to transmitt thoughts back and forth to each other?
Will governments be able to protect strong holds with sensor arrays, eliminating the need for walls, and increasing military might and enhansing the ability to protect roads, bridges, buildings and ships, by detecting suspious movements from foreign or domestic threats?

The future looks very exciting...and as long as we as human beings are able to master the coming ";Singularity".. Evolution may be realitively painless. I love the fact that so much research was done that made this book possible, and l think I have read all the works of Mr Richards over the past few months. I so look forward to what is coming.. So.. Whats Next??
