Excellent. Lanier's one of the smartest people on the planet, and he has one of the biggest hearts on the planet. He understands technology and the culture and history of Silicon Valley more fully than almost everyone in Silicon Valley yet his imagination and intellect breaks completely free from the Silicon Valley bubble.

His storytelling here is warm, caring, human and accessible but still he stretches my brain almost to the breaking point. This book is a solid workout for the heart and the mind, and it will challenge you and stick with you.

(Don't miss the appendix about "phenotropic computing." I'm still wrestling with the ramifications of that one...)
