In lively, mordantly witty prose, Negroponte decodes the mysteries–and debunks the hype–surrounding bandwidth, multimedia, virtual reality, and the Internet, and explains why such touted innovations as the fax and the CD-ROM are likely to go the way of the BetaMax. “Succinct and readable. . . . If you suffer from digital anxiety . . . here is a book that lays it all out for you.”–Newsday.
