"Made to Break" is a definite eye-opener to the world of obsolescence and tech-junkyards. Who ever thinks about where all of those old computers and cell phones go? The book is a compilation, meaning it is not as memorable as something that is written all by one author. Im just glad someone wrote this book so I could have some idea of the massive tech-graveyards that will not stop increasing anytime soon. It makes you think about the values that our culture values...do we want things to break so we have the chance to buy newer and better products?
