Is virtual reality genuine reality? Are we all living in a simulated reality right now? Is it possible to lead a life in a virtual world that is just as good, or better, than “real life”? In Reality+, a philosopher explains his thoughts on these and six other common philosophical questions in our current computer-enhanced world.
I love a book that makes me stop reading and ponder what I just read. This book does this multiple times. The author takes complex ideas and breaks them down for non-brainiacs. Using pop culture references and cartoon illustrations allows everyone to understand his points.
If you are a gamer and/or loved The Matrix, you need to read this book. It will change the way you view the world. Reality+ also has some brilliant plot ideas for science fiction authors too. 5 stars and a favorite!
Thanks to W.W. Norton & Company and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
