The Pentagon’s Brain

The Pentagon’s Brain┬áby Annie Jacobsen is well researched, but the author’s political agenda detracted from the book. I think we all understand that DARPA’s primary goal is to design weapons for the US military. I am not sure the DARPA deserves to be presented as a villain for an issue with which society as a whole needs to grapple. However, I do give the author credit for her efforts to inform that public debate, and she does make a good point that the development of these systems does not get the public discussion that it merits.
