After On: A Novel of Silicon Valley

So I’m an audible addict. Just a confession I guess. And I bought this audiobook pretty much based on the preamble which broke nearly every rule of selling fiction I ever heard of. Listen to it yourself for free at this handy link I have provided. What do you think of this book? I’m especially interested in the opinions of Silicon Valley denizens (of which there are more than a few) on this website. I was both highly entertained and also stimulated by the vast world-altering ideas expressed in this novel. Hint: has a LOT of attention paid to True AI and also social networking beyond Facebook and Instagram. Anyone already read this one? At the risk of starting a book club, I’d rate this one as required reading for anyone in the tech industry.

That audio peaked my interest.
But I already know: Shit happened & will happen.
If I read it,it could ruin a surprise.

Thanks @Quigley I do love to read about Silicon Valley, having been in it for a long time. It's fun to read about places and companies I know, and people I may have met.

I'll find a paper copy though!

The guy also has a podcast on Apple podcasts, where he interviews different tech insiders on tech subjects.
Didn't read the SF novel but listened to some of them and they are interesting.

Musta been a Twilight Zone fan, with the Rod Serling-esque grabber. 50 shades of excellent paranoid fantasy?

I'll wait until they drop the version narrated by Hillary with her sexy voice and its available as a torrent.
