Format: Paperback
I was surprised by what I read. I grapple with and have a hard time accepting Mr. Virilio's (very well thought out) propositions. I know the book is dead-on correct. But my angst is that I don't want to admit in the truth he laid out.

So in fact, the real review is this: this book scares me, deeply. If what Mr Virillio assumes to be true... I don't know... what is that future. Are we doomed? Already lost and trapped in the current of accelerated reality? (Is my angst in fact a rear view mirror of what was...) Ugh...

That being said. The book is really very good, dense, and just like a bullet... perfect in aim.

Apologies if this review is not helpful to you and perhaps overloaded on the reaction side versus thought side. I very much urge everyone of a philosophical frame of mind to read this book.

I can't unread what I read. I can't go back. Thanks Mr. Virilio.

Format: Paperback
What I don't want to believe is that this book has received so little attention. It is packed with important insights into collective behaviour today. It reflects the information revolutoin of the 20th and the emotion revolution of the 21st century and it answers so, so many questions I had in my head with a basic grid.

Read it.

This is a small book with huge content! A huge amount of it is going directly to my thesis. In this book Virilio expresses his opinions in a very clear and pragmatic way. If you never read Virilio, you can start by this one and he will definitely become one of your favorite philosophers. It is a one day reading but the information you will get from this amazing book will make you think of it for a long time!
