Publisher's Summary

What's worse than a child with a magnifying glass, a garden full of ants, and a brilliant mind full of mischief?
Try Al, a well-meaning but impish artificial intelligence with the mind of a six-year-old and a penchant for tantrums. Hope Takeda, a lab assistant charged with educating and socializing Al, soon discovers that day care is a lot more difficult when your kid is an evolving and easily frightened A.I.
When Al manages to access the Internet and escape the lab days before his official unveiling, Hope and her team embark on a mission to contain him - before he causes any real trouble.
Soon the NSA is on Al's back, the US Army is fighting a brigade of mass-produced robots, and a wannabe cyberterrorist is looking to silence Al permanently. After months spent "raising" Al, Hope knows she's running out of time - and she's not sure she'll be able to protect him. Will she manage to control the unruly A.I. and quell a global crisis, or will Al outsmart them once and for all?

He said she said

I like the author and have read many of his other books; this is not his best but worth a listen.
The biggest issue is the same as with many audiobooks the " he said, she said" reputation. With many book now in multiple formats. Surely an author or editor can have a search function and re enter variety as it stand out like a sore thumb when you notice it

The origin of Skippy The Magnificent explained?

Not certain, but I think the author may have tipped his hat to Craig Alanson's Expeditionary Force series at one point in this book.

Thoroughly enjoyed this story, and was especially impressed with Angela Dawe's performance as narrator; she does man voices far better than most men do lady voices!
