Sooner than we think, smart machines will take our places at work and shake up the world we live in. We think of ourselves as the top of the mental food chain, but that may not last! Already, machines can outplay us at chess, perform surgeries, manage airports, design buildings, and act in films. Soon they'll be able to compete with us in nearly every field. Will this cause mass layoffs and rioting in the streets? Or will these mechanical geniuses usher in a paradise of wealth and leisure for us all? Part One is a witty, take-no-prisoners march through this strange future, with insights on ways we can stay in control and not get left behind. Part Two presents a clear-eyed look at our high-tech "culture of adolescence" and how to outgrow it... puts the spotlight on the confusing jumble of modern media and suggests how to make sense of all the shouting... and does color commentary on the battle between science and religion -- with a surprising twist on who may win.
