This is an interesting book and we'll worth a read. I learned to "see" physics in a new light (pun). And I do recommend this as a general read on QFT. One not so positive comment. .. I was loving all the author had to say until he talked about AI, if you can ignore that small comment or two, you'll love this book for its intended topic which is presented well. As for the comments on AI I'd recommend you research for yourself in CS circles, if you have read the book this next comment will make sense, even wood can be made to compute and therfore to exhibit AI. You can compute with almost anything, even falling dominoes for instance. ..look it up :-)
