Format: Hardcover
I heard the in depth Fioridi interview on the BBC this morning and think this will be a good read and am buying the book now. The reviewer that criticized this book based on the Searle review in the New York Review of books miss the point. I'll update my review after reading the work, but based on Fioridi's interview he has very good perspective.

Format: Hardcover
Absurd, uninformed philosophically, absolutely wrong-headed. Only hardcore AI people would like it for all the obvious dumb reasons. See John R. Searle's review in The New York Review of Books for the sloppy details.
