Not for me
I was kind of intrigued by the title and synopsis but then quite disappointed by the story. Many very smart people making very dumb mistakes to move the story along to a classical good (American) guy beating bad (Russian) guy in a gun battle. This obsession with firearms, the bigger the better, is not for me but worse in my view is that the author is brushing over the pivotal point of the story. The key event comes as a sort of a science miracle with no explanation. There are many interesting philosophical questions raised but the author only offers 'ad hominem' arguments: Zuckerberg, Musk are very rich so they are right about AI. An opportunity missed in my view.
