I read Exhalation Stories by Ted Chiang on June 24, 2019
This is Ted Chiang’s second book and it is another masterpiece. It is such a great fiction book which incorporates ideas on time travel, entropy, quantum realities, AI and free will.
What I like about his approach on futurism is that he is very optimistic rather than pessimistic. Also I like that his stories centers around the characters in these science-fiction scenarios and not nessecarily (actually sometimes actively avoiding) whether the technology/extreme-science is actually good or bad for humanity.
Ted Chiang is a brilliant author and somehow he makes the reader feel smart also, which is an amazing quality.
