Ray Kurzweil, legendary inventor and author of New York Times best sellers The Singularity Is Near and How to Create a Mind, has created inventions and ideas that have changed human civilization. PBS called him “One of the revolutionaries who made America”, and Inc. magazine named him “Edison’s rightful heir”.
Now, Kurzweil has created a novel and an unforgettable character – Danielle – to help convey some of his most important ideas. Danielle: Chronicles of a Superheroine tells the story of a precocious young girl who uses her intelligence and accelerating technology to solve humanity’s grandest challenges. Now, if only we can find more courageous visionaries like Danielle.
Written as an alternative history, Danielle’s journey as a driven young girl brings her face-to-face with many important figures from recent history and our modern world. Told through the eyes of Danielle’s equally remarkable sister, Claire, a girl adopted from Haiti after surviving the earthquake, this story shows all listeners a hopeful vision of humanity’s future – and how to achieve it.
