A history of technological change told from a unique point of view
4 out of 5 stars
The world has changed a lot in the last 50 years. Think about all the changes that you can think of right now? From land-lines to cell phones, cell phones have shrunk in size. We went from looking things up in a library to Googling everything, and looking in Encyclopedias to using Wikipedia for everything. This book covers these changes in a way that the author is familiar with–a newspaper.
When I first heard about this book I was intrigued. It sounded like an interesting re-telling of history from a different point of view. That’s pretty much what it was and I definitely enjoyed it. The author uses a unique way of telling the story that makes it feel interesting and different even though people know a lot of the details within the book.
It’s nice to see a book that is a historical text – but is easy to read like this way. Sometimes history texts can be boring and incredibly dry. This book wasn’t like that, which was super nice and an incredible change of pace.
Gulesserian may take some liberties (some of the stories could have some things added to them and I wouldn’t know) because they are written in essay form. But, overall I really enjoyed this book and I would recommending it, especially if you’re into technology and history.
