A Review of Technopoly

Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to TechnologyTechnopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology by Neil Postman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Postman has some good ideas about the impact of technology on culture. He is somewhat of a Cassandra, bemoaning the crassness of the modern age. Toward the end of the book, he becomes quite grumpy. Grumpy to the extent that he does not seem to be able to grasp the benefits of the technology. I am not sorry that I read it but it is not a book that I will ever re-read.
