I enjoyed reading this history as it evolved in the technological framework. Once you start, you feel like getting the whole picture.
The strength of the book is it traces the philosophical, technological, financial and social streams all integrated skilfully and artfully. This integration make The technology of man a must read by all who care about where the technique, craft and technology came from and where will it lead us.
Many sections are also in large print -- hopefully, no eye that sees will miss this visual history. Moreover, it is nicely illustrated.
Worth buying for libraries that specialize in history of science and history of technology, as well as, public libraries.
