Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ong is one of the most mind-blowing writers in the field of literacy studies/linguistics, and yet he manages to write such complex concepts in very digestable, flowing language. It takes a true master of his subject to be able to make his work so approachable while simultaneously pushing you to expand your notion of what impacts the transition from oral to a text-based/visual society will have.

l met Father Ong at SLU while in grad school in the Seventies. Fun to celebrate this earth-shaking treatise 30 years later.
