Read in January, 2012

A reasonable look at tech trends to 2100 in computers, AI, medicine, nanotech, energy and space travel. Doesn't predict a singularity during that time, but still lots will happen. He predicts Moore's Law could stop working by the 2020s for silicon-based computers, so we will need to find another basis for moving forward: quantum computers perhaps? The final chapters on how humanity will adapt aren't up to the tech chapters before, but still cover lots of interesting ground: type 1, 2 and 3 civilizations, for example (we are type 0.7).
