Electronic Life


Description for ELECTRONIC LIFE: HOW TO THINK ABOUT COMPUTERS by Michael Crichton:

Michael Crichton's ELECTRONIC LIFE is a non-fiction piece of work that aimed to educate people who were looking into buying a computer for the first time in 1983. Crichton talks about the practical matters when it comes to deciding what computer to buy in his discussion of everything from A (Afraid of Computers) to Z (Zenith: The Final Days).ELECTRONIC LIFE was published before anyone even knew what dotcom was or what www stood for. It was a forward-thinking, visionary, consumer-oriented book about one writer's thoughts about how computers would be in our lives in ways we couldn't even imagine - and guess what? He was right!

Is is not out of date? Yes -- that's why it's out of print by the publisher. Before people start dissing the work, perhaps they should first investigate the original publication date. Then it won't be seen as ancient -- rather, a document that was ahead of it's time.
