James Gleick (Chaos: Genius; Isaac Newton) is a science writer who general readers can approach with confidence. Three of his books have been National Book Award or Pulitzer Prize finalists. His new The Information leads us on an informed cook's tour of a technological revolution that not even Greatest Generation survivors can safely ignore. With crisp profiles and anecdotes, Gleick takes us back to times when the information flood was just a trickle of bright ideas from isolated thinkers and eccentric inventors. Then he escorts us into the full deluge of bits and bytes, blogs and tweets that now dominate our lives and are actually transforming our consciousness. A rich narrative about a paradigm-making onslaught.
