Interesting, but...

The book is interesting but goes too much into Watson, the IBM computer's performance in Jeopardy, and repeats themes mentioned earlier in the book without anything significant. The reader's performance, though making an effort to be amusing and showing talent, can be annoying!

Worth listening.

At first I found the narrator a bit too enthusiastic, but he grew on me. This book was very interesting and told great stories about applications.
