I found Kurzweil's book  a case of "talking out loud" and
Aleksander's book  a bit odd in places but more hands on.
1. Kurzweil, Raymond. The Age of Spiritual Machines. Phoenix mass
market p/bk, 1999.
2. Aleksander, Igor. How to Build a Mind: Dreams and Diaries (Maps of
the Mind S.). Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2000.
