The author’s thesis—that the doomsday blinders many of us wear are not justified by history or current events—may be a tough sell to the glass-half-empty crowd. But this audiobook is packed with so many great facts, anecdotes, and sideways perspectives—if the Internet were a person, it wouldn’t be old enough to buy a beer—that you’ll find yourself quoting from it at the next water cooler gathering. Narrator Grover Gardner’s trademark gravitas, tempo changes—he speeds up slightly to read a question, then gradually slows to answer—and confident, jaunty baritone make his the perfect voice to present this reasoned look at what could be the future. Highly recommended for both cynics and optimists. R.W.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2013]
