Tom Merritt is one of the most fluent and punctual Internet celebrities, and his book, Chronology of Tech History, is a fun-loving romp through the annals of geekdom past. A definite page-turner. You won't be able to put it down. Really. There's glue on the cover.

This was a quick fun read.

More of an anecdotal look at technology through history than detailed information to prevent it from being boring or bogging down.

Merritt has a quick wit and provides a nice consistent pacing through the speeding up changes.

I do wish that because this is an eBook that there was more linking to items for further research. I also think that this sort of thing is perfect for an expanded add on book series. ie Here is what was happening in 2006 in the Tech World that can add directly into this eBook.

Tom Merritt has written an easy to read chronology of tech history. I bought the Kindle edition to read on my ipad between meetings - and it is great at that, as it has very little plot but lots of action!

I really liked this book, it's not, and doesn't even try to be anything more than what it is, tech trivia about the history highlights that can trace the events and people that lead to what we have become tech wise.
Tom Merritt is a good writer as well as a good host and narrator, and is currently on the TWIT network. I enjoy listening and watching many of the shows he's involved with on that network.

Ii came across this when I was looking for another book and bought it because I recognize Tom Merritt's name. I usually get a sample before I buy anything from the Kindle store but I'm a big fan of Mr. Merritt's work at the Twit network. After sitting down with the book I'm thoroughly impressed with the collection of facts that Mr. Merritt has assembled. It is cleverly written and a joy to read. A must for any fan of technology or for anyone who want to know more about its origins. Highly recommended!

The best part of this book is being able to slip through to random dates and reading about all sorts of great trivia. Tom Merrits podcasts are great i reccomend Tech News Today and The Sword and Laser

I used to really enjoy Tom Merritt's Tech History Today, and was disappointed when he stopped doing the show. I felt a lot better when I heard he was working on this book instead, and it doesn't disappoint. It's a fun look back through time at the people and events that lead to the world of technology we know and (usually) love today.

All in one volume a history of technology in plain easy to read language. A Tech History for Dummies, if you will. I enjoy Tom Merritt's work and I am happy to help support him by buying his books.
