Review:

"An intellectually powerful 'Introduction' . . . This book is a major achievement. . . . If we are talking about a monument to highest purposes of scholarship mingled with a direct responsibility to a wider audience, this text passes the test. . . . truly national monuments of ideas are being created here. . . . These works are active in the way that passive stone will never be. It is an appropriate transition for a country that sees itself in a revolutionary new age of information and information science to make our new monuments monuments to ideas."--David E. E. Sloane, "Essays in Arts and Sciences

Book Description:

A series of sidesplitting adventures from the iconic American writer.
