Ah, bad neuroscience-fiction, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. This book is a not-entirely-plausible but reasonably entertaining adventure in the perils of modern brain-computer chip interfacing. The plot isn't terribly original (think, Manchurian Candidate for the new millennium), and the idea that with enough money from a shadowy "Network", research that at the start of the book is just getting off the ground is, 18 months later capable of controlling the mind of the President-elect is a little...optimistic. Speaking as a neuroscientist, the brain just isn't that obvious.
