"Josephson draws readers into the complexities and fascinations of the study of technological history. A lively and provocative book."

"Josephson’s conclusions are guaranteed to make you think of the modern world and its interconnectedness in a different light. ‘Sometimes,’ he writes ‘you should just say, no, refuse that new-fangled fish stick or aluminum soda can or smart phone or online source.’"

"... At its best is original and instructive and compresses a great deal of technical material into a brief and readable form."

"... every chapter of this book offers surprising insights and is a pleasure to read – not only for academic readers or lecturers who might find the essays very suitable to discuss with students. The book will also be appreciated by a broader audience interested in learning more about the complex technological systems that are bound up in the artefacts surrounding us."
