"This book is an exotic plant with roots sucking nutrients from the skulls of the most interesting people on the planet. Prepare to be pollinated." Mark Frauenfelder, founder of boingboing.net
"Roy Christopher has one of those distinctive voices that pops up every once in a while, an intelligent voice that hasn’t been domesticated by the academic machine, an engaging voice that hasn’t been prostituted by the infotainment complex. He’s been tracking down the situations, people, and ideas that he thinks matter. I’m glad to see him get this all down in a book, and I’m not alone." Peter Lunenfeld, author of USER: InfoTechnoDemo
