Recommended for: Anyone who plans to live another 15 years

This book, by one of the most powerful, creative, and innovative minds of our time, predicts an event to occur within the next fifty years that will represent a break with the entirety of our history as a species on this planet: our transcendance of biology through advanced technologies. As one of the true revolutionaries in technology himself, whose ability to predict, and even create future trends in technology are legendary, this
"heir to Thomas Edison" is a fascinating source for the ideas and trends that may shape for us a future almost unimaginable today. Fun, Eh? Love it! Kurzweil will blow your futurist mind.
