Wonderful book with a fascinating theme, bring me the head of Philip K. Dick! Yes, it is still out there, somewhere, dreaming of electric Pinchots. The star of the tale, of course, is the android, but the thought of what PKD would think of the android is just as mesmerizing a concept, and much PKD history (as well as android history) is introduced herein, as well. Dufty produced a great book that succeeds in many, many ways, telling the story of the android's creation, talented performance, and mysterious escape. But not to be neglected is the amazingly smoothed reading of Bronson Pinchot, whose wonderful inflection, musical meter, and rich tones should be the target for all android voices (and that achievement is probably more impossible than true AI itself); Pinchot is one of the best voice talents around. "How to Build an Android" is a credit-worthy Audible choice. Art et Amour Toujours

Am interesting story with a great narrator. I'd like to have seen a deeper dive into the technologies employed in building the android, but it was overall a decent balance.
