Mostly, it has the kick of a good Wired article before it gets submerged [literally} in seemingly endless poor prose to defend historical templates.
If you have the patience, the book still manages to teach you some interesting things about these cables, thus I'm not scoring it as one star. But it's not an easy read, and if you're looking to understand how these cables systems work (technically and economically) this isn't the book to find out.
I keep going, hoping that it will actually talk about laying cable and the challenges the engineers had to over come.
Too much discussion of impacts on civilization, politics, societal impacts, etc, etc, etc...
I'm almost 25% thru the book and still haven't learned anything about cable!
