Stephen Baker's book, The Numerati, is nothing short of an eye opening account of the way things are heading in our modern age. There are undoubtedly parts of this book that not everybody will find interesting, but it's equally doubtful that you will not find some part of this book totally interesting. In short, the book has a little something for anyone who is interested in how technology and number crunching is going to affect them in the very near future. This book is a hands down, "HEADS UP" kind of book. And in case you are wondering, it is not one of those weird conspiracy cook books that can only be found on militia web sites.
