Energetically narrated by Jason Culp, this excoriation of our social media-obsessed world, which is now flirting with AI-infused virtual reality--all foisted on us by Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Peter Thiel, and Marc Andreessen--is convincing, if disquieting. The author has a deep grasp of his subjects and subject matter. He identifies the ways that his four technocrats have manipulated the public to believe their vision is inevitable, and benign. Instead, he argues, they are selling us a calculated fantasy that promotes a "metastasis of social distrust [and] political polarization" that further entrenches their own dominance. Culp imbues this polemic with a sense of urgency before practical solutions are posed. This audiobook has a powerful message: Let us wake up and resist the end of reality.
