The book traces the history of book in its present form Starting from the clay tablets of the Sumerian civilization to the e book evolution it elaborates the evolution of the book as we know it todayThough filled with elaborate historical details and dates so far its been an interesting ead Its amazing how the book evolved Had some interesting points but hard to get through Despite some conceptual cruft and unneeded technical cataloging Evolution of the is a gem While the main thesis that the progression book technology has followed the model of Steven J Gould s gem While the main thesis that the progression of book technology has followed the model of Steven J Gould s of Punctuated Euillibrium is uestionable and eally unnecessary the book is packed with amazing anecdotes and facts about the incredible progression of portable information storage designThe volume tends to lose some of its peppy charm toward the end as Kilgour attempts to plumb the depths of advances in digital document technology with some of the same detail as that which he explores the development of scroll and parchmen.

Nning chapters are actually fairly interesting with some amusing details about the kinds of warnings inscribed on clay tablet library books and some of the marginalia that monk scribes wrote when copying books The later chapters of the book however suffer from an excess of overly technical language few people aside from perhaps engineers are going to be interested in or able to follow the Descriptions Of The Minute Inner Workings Of Printing Presses Published of the minute inner workings of printing presses Published 1998 this book is also obviously ather dated by this point when it comes to the discussion of e books point when comes to the discussion of e books an edition that Ninth City Burning reflects the booming success of this new technology would help shed light on the current market Overall this is a succinct and mostly engaging summary of the history of the book from its inception to the modern era and should be a useful text for those looking for a bit info on the subject I didn t actuallyead all of this book I ead a few chapters of it for class and thoroughly enjoyed them I have a library c Phewi.
