Kurzweil spends more time comparing himself to the great minds of humanity than he does actually discussing his theories. The content is laced mostly with anecdotal fluff, and quotes by other people to make his writing sound more impressive. I'm really happy Audible allows returns because this book is a waste of money. You'd save yourself a lot of time and frustration by just reading a synopsis of the book.
