THE SINGULARITY IS NEAR When Humans Transcend Biology

by | Read by George K. Wilson

Contemporary Culture • 25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

The title of this book refers to the author’s view that sometime in the near future human brain power and computers will become one, allowing us to become more productive and creative. It’s a bold prediction, but Kurzweil has an impressive track record in his predictions of technological progress over the past 20 years. Narrator George Wilson has the sort of deep, authoritative voice you’d want for a book such as this. His assured pace and clear diction ensure that we hear every word and can consider the work’s complex ideas. Wilson also varies his cadence and emphasis to create a rhythm that is both easy to follow and interesting to the ear. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2011]
