Editorial Reviews

Review

"Awesome near-term science fiction." - Brad Feld, Foundry Group managing director

"An insightful and adrenaline-inducing tale of what humanity could become and the machines we could spawn." - Ben Huh, CEO of Cheezburger

"A fun read and tantalizing study of the future of technology: both inviting and alarming." - Harper Reed, former CTO of Obama for America, Threadless

"A fascinating and prescient take on what the world will look like once computers become smarter than people. Highly recommended." - Mat Ellis, Founder & CEO Cloudability

"A phenomenal ride through a post-scarcity world where humans are caught between rogue AIs. If you like having your mind blown, read this book!" - Gene Kim, author of The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win

"The Last Firewall is like William Gibson had a baby with Tom Clancy and let Walter Jon Williams teach it karate. Superbly done." - Jake F. Simons, author of Wingman and Train Wreck.
