From the bestselling author ofEinsteins Dreamscomes this harrowing tale of one mans struggle to cope in a wired world, even as his own biological wiring short-circuits. As Bostons Red Line shuttles Bill Chalmers to work one summer morning, something extraordinary happens. Suddenly, he cant remember which stop is his, where he works, or even who he is. The only thing he can remember is his corporate motto: the maximum information in the minimum time. Bills memory returns, but a strange numbness afflicts him. As he attempts to find a diagnosis for his deteriorating illness, he descends into a nightmarish tangle of inconclusive results, his companys manic frenzy, and his familys disbelief. Ultimately, Bill discovers that he is fighting not just for his body but also for his soul.
