Please post a comment below to nominate a book for the group to read for July 2018.

Please use the "add book/author" link just above the comment box to insert a link to the Goodreads book page for the book you are nominating, so other members can more easily assess it.

You may nominate a book which has been suggested previously and did not win. You may nominate more than one book, but we might not include all of your nominations in the voting.

Please do not nominate a book which is unlikely to be available to all members, such as one which was just published within the last three months or which is only available on Kindle.

Nominations will close on May 21 or when we have about 10 good nominations, whichever occurs first.

David Good (david_good) | 2 comments Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

This is a good book on a very topical issue. It really gets behind the hype and media confusion to explain what is (and is not) understood about artificial intelligence.

This book does not seem to be widely available. Not from Amazon U.S.; not from my public library.

This book does not seem to be widely available. Amazon U.S. has a paperback, but no e-book or audio. Interestingly, my library has an e-book, but no paper copy.
