From the Publisher
"There is erudition, an excellent bibliography, and much food for thought in this book, and it does resonate with problems in American society."
"The book is easy to read and has a broad sweep. . . . Students and thoughful psychologists interested in communication, stresses related to time pressure, cultural change, and the effects of technology on human behavior and cognition should find useful ideas here."

"Impressive in its command of details and description, this book accurately describes the revolutionary social changes wrought by modern culture, and especially the instantaneous culture of electonic communication."
"Bertman weaves a critical, compelling, and most significant for the sociologist, multi-level analytic argument about the human dimensions of living an accelerated life. He offers insightful, thoughtful, and conservative strategies for restraining our technology, retaining our history, and regaining our senses. This book could be used as a supplemental reading in Introductory Sociology or Social Problems courses that have a social change orientation. This book could also be easily integrated into courses such as American Society, Social Movements, Technology and Society, Social Change, and Social Theory and portions could be integrated into Family or Social Psychology courses."
