Editorial Reviews

Review

Moths to the Flame is a heady mixture of futuristic prophecy and historical perspective covering all aspects of computer technology, some frightening, some practical, some fanciful.... Intelligent layreaders will find that Rawlins... is plenty smart without being obscurantist.

Publishers Weekly

Review

Total immersion in artificial environments integration of computer networks with the human nervous system intelligent weapons that stalk their targets the triumph of intellectual resources over natural resources well I could go on. Rawlins weaves these inexorable trends and more into a highly engaging and yes suspenseful tale of the past exponentially transforming itself into the future. Highly recommended for readers who plan to be around during the early twenty-first century.

Raymond Kurzweil, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Kurzweil Applied Intelligence Inc; Chairman Kurzweil Technologies Inc; Author of The Age of Intelligent Machines (MIT Press) (Endorsement)

Rawlins is a terrifically angular writer, crisp and fluid and recognizable. Very nice staccato in the vignettes and stories he uses to illustrate his notions, VERY interesting metaphors, almost anthropological in its reach and ability to hang in one's memory like an afterimage.

Deborah Fitzgerald, Program on Science and Technology, MIT (Endorsement)

Total immersion in artificial environments, integration of computer networks with the human nervous system, intelligent weapons that stalk their targets, the triumph of intellectual resources over natural resources, well I could go on. Rawlins weaves these inexorable trends and more into a highly engaging and, yes, suspenseful tale of the past exponentially transforming itself into the future. Highly recommended for readers who plan to be around during the early twenty-first century.
