The book is part real life and part philosophical treatise in the respect. It originally worked of a Nietzschean concept, added some McLuhan and then some experiential stuff putting it all together in the tapestry of human behaviour.(less)

Stephenson is either hit or miss. This one was a miss for me. Although his research is immaculate, volumes of infodump do not an engaging read make. I really didn't not want to explore the ins and outs of delta-v. Guess I'll wait for the next one.
