RAY KURZWEIL'S NEW BOOK, The Singularity is Near, gets a review by James Miller, who thinks that Kurzweil's predictions are a bit too optimistic: "Kurzweil partially overcomes this prediction problem by showing there are many possible paths to the Singularity. But it's possible that all of these paths will prove too steep for humanity to climb. I would have that Kurzweil title his book The Singularity Is Probably Near."
