Editorial Reviews

Review

"...In analyzing the essays in the Teich text, my students develop the skill of argument analysis."

" I like the organization of the table of contents by topics. It made it extremely easy for me to scan the titles to see which would fulfill course objectives."

Format: Paperback
I have used various editions of this text in a course I teach called Technology and the Challenges of Humanity. While I see the value of having all the material easily presented for students in one text, the cost is ridiculous considering how much more, better, sources are available open source. I continue to search for the essays contained herein and others available open source or via our library to decrease the cost students have for textbooks that outdate quickly. Considering the topic of this text, having more online resources and even free access would make sense. The editor does a good job introducing each section and essay. I would like to see more support materials and a decreased cost. Students buy books twice this size for less money.

I haven't bought the book myself, but my Physics teacher let me borrow it.

The essays go back and forth how society and technology affect each other. Essays cover almost everything from philosophy, to technology, to politics written by both critics and enthusiasts that really try to write for students, and they do so well.

I gave it a three because at many times it can be quite interesting, many essays are extremely boring and make you want to just put it down.

This was purchased for a class that I was taking. It was rather dry, but some parts were interesting. The biggest turn of was how much it costs. Definitely not worth the buy unless you have to get it.

This underwhelming text book could also be described as: less-awesome, not great, & sadness inducing...
I gave it 2 stars because it didn't make me want to quit school altogether...
