Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Journalist Steven Baker offers this fascinating look at social trends such as emailing, cell phone usage, and even shopping habits to examine how scientists he calls “the Numerati” are breaking us down into numbers to profile us. The idea may seem intriguing, but, in truth, Baker tells us, it's incredibly scary, as the formulas calculated for each individual may be used to control his or her life. Narrator Paul Michael Garcia taps into the harsh realities of Baker’s vision in his reading, speaking in a firm and candid voice that relates the material in a straightforward yet ominous tone. The way Garcia uses his voice to connect with his listeners makes the material all the more believable—and frightening. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
