Reviews

"As Steven E. Jones observes, we imagine that our mobile devices connect us to each other, and to a certain version of the world, in a manner that's invisible and ethereal. But in fact, this illusion depends on a great multiplicity of 200-foot-tall structures that we see, or decline to see, wherever we go: cell towers. Briskly deconstructing these enablers of our digital lives as physical objects, and as quasi-magical connectors of the immaterial, Jones reveals them as secret object-icons of our time. Once you've read this, you won't be able to stop seeing--and thinking about--the cell phone tower." --Rob Walker, author of The Art of Noticing (2019)
