Reviews

"It is a provocative, enlightening, sometimes frightening story." -Thomas Sugrue, New York Times

"Many people have wondered what mechanization is doing to man; nobody yet has investigated, documented, and illustrated the question to the extent of this enormous and fascinating book." -Time

"Giedion reveled in the splendor of such humble things, the stuff of ordinary life. He studied them lovingly and sought to convey to his readers a sense of their inner beauty, mystery, and wonder." -Technology and Culture
