Praise for Talking to Robots
“One of 32 Books You Need to Read This Summer” and a “riveting read.”–

“A refreshing variation on the will-intelligent-robots-bring-Armageddon genre…this colorful mixture of expert futurology and quirky speculation does not disappoint.”Kirkus

“5 books not to miss…A fascinating work of imaginative futurology”–USA Today

“Intensely readable, downright terrifying, and surprisingly uplifting.”

“Until we have a non-fiction robot that writes brilliant, insightful books (I give it 25 years), we can thank God we have David Ewing Duncan. Thanks to David’s book, I have a healthy mix of wonder and panic about the future. But more important, perhaps: I feel a bit more prepared for this radically different landscape, one where robots change everything from politics to parenting, from coffee to sex.”–AJ Jacobs, author of Drop Dead Healthy

“This book is a brilliant chronicle of encounters with our future selves, even as we already experience the vertigo of changing. Drawn from real conversations with living visionaries, Duncan takes us to the crossroads of the inevitable merging of human and machine. Splendidly written, passionately argued, and well-researched, this book is a divination tool for the arrival of either the utopia or the apocalypse.”–Andrei Codrescu, author of Raised by Puppets Only to Be Killed by Research: essays from NPR
