    incomplite perspecive

    the book does not knowlege that the problems of the humanity is the lack of intelligence, and for some reason which i culd not unserstand it assumes that the more intelligence may bring the end. and then anyhow, if the superontelligence thinks the end wiser, how is it meaningfull for normal intellignce to judge this decision? the book itself is the proof that supeintelligence is needed. I am sorry also to say that the book is also having difficulty in expressing itself in a sensible econmy regarding using the time of the reader.

    Super unreadable

    The plodding academic style just killed this book for me. It's hard to work out Bostrom's point. He goes into an excruciating amount of technical details that aren't necessary and which I suspect are insufficiently detailed for those who would understand the technicalities. I went to Amazon.com looking for permission to stop trying to finish this snorefest. Suffice it to say, I'm moving on. Life is too short to waste on this book.
