it was ok
Recommended for: luddites, alll manner of loud mouthed anti-technology malcontents
Read in March, 2003

This book is about how technology affects our society and culture. Specifically, this book is about how Technology negatively affects our society and culture. Postman is very one sided and hardly even pays lip service to any contradictory interpretations than his own.

I read this book very quickly, in one sitting, finishing the book in an afternoon. I don't remember his whole argument. However, when I finished I remember being dissatisfied with Postman's arguments, thinking he was an idiot, thinking the book was well written, and being damn proud of myself for reading the book in one sitting.

Neil Postman gets two stars for good writing, he would have had more, except that I disagree with his thesis and he does not argue it particularly well.
