Review

Rating: 7

From the origin of the internet, the autonomous vehicle research to everything in between, this book manages to cover some of the most interesting research being funded by DARPA along with some excellent historical background and unprecedented insight into how all the different areas of DARPA function. The personalities are colorful, the science fascinating and the implications even more engaging. About my only complaint was that that last chapter on alternative fuels just sort of ended, leaving me wanting some sort of conclusion, if not a longer book.
