The Age of Spiritual Machines

Although I've read The Singularity is Near, I have yet to read Ray Kurzweil's previous book, The Age of Spiritual Machines. I didn't realize that this book has predictions for 2009, 2019, 2029, and 2099, so I'm curious to see what good old Ray Kurzweil has to say. Although I don't have a lot of patience for the singularity theory, I think Ray is otherwise a brilliant guy and I expect his predictions for 2019 could be fun to read and ponder.
