The sense of wonder one undoubtedly will feel, however, makes the book a real pleasure to read. As one learns of the possibility that genes exploit quantum tricks, that we’re approaching a more complete picture of the origins of the universe, that we may be able to see the realisation of hypercomputers… it’s difficult not to appreciate the decades, people and ideas which have led us to this point. While it may seem that, so far, uncertainty has simply paved roads for more uncertainty, Brooks makes the journey that is “At the Edge of Uncertainty” a most enjoyable one.
