What People are Saying About This

The Wall Street Journal - Richard A. Shaffer

The book is one that any reader with an interest in the future of technology should find worthwhile, not only for what it predicts about the increasingly important computer but also for what it doesn't... In a field where optimism is the rule, the MIT outlook is refreshingly cautious.
