Description
(National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist) Since his National Book Award finalist Chaos and his Richard Feynman and Isaac Newton biographies (both finalists for the Pulitzer Prize), James Gleick has been one of our leading chroniclers of science and technology. In this thoughtful, insightful book he shows how information has become the modern era's driving force and defining quality. From the invention of scripts and alphabets to the long-misunderstood talking drums of Africa—and Claude Shannon's coining of the term "bit" in his formulation of information theory—Gleick describes information technologies that have changed the very nature of human consciousness.
