Narrator Patrick Lawlor's genial tone helps make this production accessible and meaningful to the listener. Gay explores the latest scientific breakthroughs that are allowing humans to gain the ability to control machines with their minds. Though slow and expensive, the progress is ratcheting up, in particular with mind-controlled appendages. Embedded throughout the text are complex explanations of exactly how scientists are hacking into the brain to connect it to machines, and Lawlor's emphasis and deliberation smooth out these challenging passages. Additionally, his tone proves welcoming and projects the sense of curiosity about how far the science has come that characterizes Gay's prose.
