Reviews

"With a keen eye for both breadth and detail, for irony and insight, Rhodes has found some of the best thinking by figures ranging from Henry Ford and Albert Einstein to Rachel Carson and Joan Didion."-Scott LaFee, The San Diego Union-Tribune
"A captivating encapsulation of our dissonant feelings about technology."-Gilbert Taylor, Booklist
"The book reads like a condensed history of technology, told through the strained voices of those who marvel -- or cower -- at its impact."-Jeff Pooley, Brill's Content
