Marie Jones and Larry Flaxman will make you think, yet again. From ancient pyramids and the Baghdad Battery to "Sharknado" and social networking, they dive into how information is and is not passed onand how that affects society at the time and for the future. "Everything we engage in as a society, as human beings, locally or globally, gets embeded and encoded as pieces of historical puzzle for someoe to put together one day." So true! They make you contemplate that next status you put up on facebook, photo you put on instagram or just how the pyramids were built. A great book for those interested in history, alternative history, sociology or just those who are curious.
