The ideas presented in this book are fascinating, despite now being over 10 years old. In some ways that helps the author's case since many of his predictions have already, or about to, become a reality. It is well researched and chock full of ideas and an inherent optimism about the future, which is refreshing after reading so many bleak sci-fi novels (like mine).
The writing is somewhat dry however, and very little commentary or opinion is presented, instead piling on facts, research, maths, and graphs. Also, the graphs are very difficult to read on a Kindle, it could have been formatted better.
