Read full description of the books:



An ambitious attempt to balance a technical, psychological and sociological examination of the "Internet." Ultimately, the book fails to advance any meaningful analysis. Blum's self-imposed task was to find physical infrastructure components of the global internet, but instead he drowns us in aspirational language more concerned with the wonder of modern inter-connectivity than the task at hand. Fancy literary references make it seem Blum is more familiar with liberal arts curriculum than anything technical.

For those readers with a basic understanding of the internet, this book will not enhance their understanding at all. Those lacking a basic understanding may find themselves lost. Blum visited many interesting sites and met with some knowledgeable network engineers. Unfortunately, his jaunts come across as vacations lacking much benefit to the reader.

This disappointing book is written in an unwarranted self-indulgent style. Readers interested in the topic of communications systems may be interested in Tim Wu's well-documented historical analysis, "The Master Switch."
