really liked it

While this is far from the best written or even most compelling book I've ever read, I rank it highly because it's both interesting and unique.

Technology has allowed us to actually take outside sound and change it into input that can directly stimulate the auditory nerves. This is one person's experience with dealing with having this strange computer be a part of them and their experience of the world.

One of the most powerful images he conjures up is when he plugs the implant into a walkman... and is hearing sounds that never existed as air molecule vibrations.
