Tales of a Global Era
review 1: This is another interesting read. While Mr. Gompers address several eras he makes it clear with every era we have been in from agricultural, industrial to technological while good has come from those, so has many negative effects such as loss of jobs, which helped create more living conditions for those affected. He certainly made me stop and ask myself are we really getting ahead in this world, or we ultimately doing ourselves in. It is a tough read, both from the technical jargon in some parts of the book, as well as the food for thought provided by the content.
review 2: It appears so far that I'm the only one who didn't care for this book. I found it to be cold and lacking in personal appeal. There were no real characters, just categorizations; the Builde
... morer, the Conservationist, etc. Their vignettes tell the tale (repeatedly, the same tale) of the problems with increasingly sophisticated and technological societies and their inevitable downfall. OK, I got it the first time: the rest of the book was boring and at many times Mr. Gompers came off as smug and superior, slapping the world on the knuckles for its many mistakes.A very fast read as I spent most of my time skimming. A First Reads winner that was not what I expected it to be. less
