The Gutenberg era is dead. The Electronic era is here to stay. It's a new world we have to face. If you have children, they belong to the "Downloading" generation. I suggest you read this book first, if you want to understand how far away your children navigate in an ocean of unknown past and stormy future. Sven Birkerts is the best navigator and he deserves our appreciation.
If you've ever felt that you're becoming and old fool because you care more about your old paperbacks than the latest instalment of Lost, then Sven is the man to put the iron back in your soul.No cultural reletavism, no pandering to the cleverness of the computer nerd.Reading is King,Sven tells you why.
