Editorial Reviews

Review

"Chilling and compelling"--Wired

"Highly entertaining, gripping, thought inspiring. Don't start without the time to finish -- it won't let you go."--Gifford Pinchot III, founder Bainbridge Graduate Institute and author of The Intelligent Organization

"A tremendous book that every single person needs to read. In the vein of Daniel Suarez's Daemon and Freedom(TM), William's book shows that science fiction is becoming science fact. Avogadro Corp describes issues, in solid technical detail, that we are dealing with today that will impact us by 2015, if not sooner. Not enough people have read these books. It's a problem for them, but not for the [emergent] machines."--Brad Feld, managing director Foundry Group and cofounder TechStars

"A fascinating look at how simple and benign advancements in technology could lead to the surprise arrival of the first AI. And like all good techno-thrillers, the reality of AI is less than ideal."--Jason GlaspeySilicon Florist

"An alarming and jaw-dropping tale about how something as innocuous as email can subvert an entire organization.  I found myself reading with a sense of awe, and read it way too late into the night."--Gene Kim, author of Visible Ops and The Phoenix Project
