    1. Good. I read this because "the Brads" were trilling and lahhing about this book. I basically enjoyed it and will return to some of the essays. But as with so many technnology-reticent books, they never get down to "so what do we do now then."This was written a long while ago, so maybe I am being unfair.Great essay on University Curriculum though: the move form liberal arts and training the man, to creating technical experts.

    2. Grant is a good writer, but his views always seem outdated to me. Granted the essays in this book were written in the 60s, so that is inevitable. My issue with Grant is that his view of the world comes from an old-school white-upper-class-male perspective.Still an important and thought-provoking read.

    3. Read one essay for class. This man is as brilliant and eloquent a critic of modernity as can be found, and his thoughts on technology are deeply insightful and provocative. I'm hoping to go back and read the rest, but so far I haven't had the chance.
