A radical and optimistic view of the future course of human development from t
he bestselling author of How to Create a Mind and The Age of Spiritual Machines who Bill Gates calls “the best person I know at predicting the future of artificial intelligence”


For over three decades, Ray Kurzweil has been one of the most respected and provocative advocates of the role of technology in our future. In his classic The Age of Spiritual Machines, he argued that computers would soon rival the full range of human intelligence at its best. Now he examines the next step in this inexorable evolutionary process: the union of human and machine, in which the knowledge and skills embedded in our brains will be combined with the vastly greater capacity, speed, and knowledge-sharing ability of our creations.

    I find that iTunes selling ePub file for 24.99 is a complete rip off ebooks should not cost over 10$ has the restricted file and cannot be downloaded to the device of my choice . When I purchase a paper book between 20 to 40$ I am expecting a hard cover and can do what I want with my copy ...lend it give it ect.... Ebooks started way cheaper and now company's are getting greedy. I will continue to buy the majority of my ebooks elsewhere ( what a shame ) I love the convenience of iBooks but completely refuse to pay this amount for a ebook. Hope Apple reads my comment!
