"Michael Harris's finely crafted book marks the arrival of a surprisingly authoritative media savant, in the grand tradition of McLuhan, Frye and Innis. His book opens a profound vista on an elusive but important phenomenon—the technology that will change us forever." (Governor General's Literary Award Jury)
