Computers and Society based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Computers and Society is a book that accomplishes what it set out to achieve, but by doing so it's painfully boring for the average reader. This is a book that should be read for research projects or scholars, but not by anyone looking for an entertaining read. However, as a source of information, Computers and Society is well-writing, well organized, and helpful. This isn't so much a book as it is an anthology of the works of various offers, who offer their opinions on different aspects of computer science, and of course their societal impacts. Examples include, "Internet Access Providers Should Censor Content" and "Computer Crimes Will Increasingly Invade People's Privacy." Each entry is quite short, as only a few pages on average. This leads to the book's pacing being very fast, which may not be enjoyable for some readers. Overall, this is a book that is useful but not enjoyable, at least for myself. I'm sure there are readers who will take interest in the current-events topics that this book discusses, but personally I have no intention of rereading, save for a project or for research purposes.
