Book Review: The Glass Cage: Automation and Us, by Nicholas Carr ★★★★☆

Ed. Note: The following book review is by Noam O., a student in Kathleen’s class in San Francisco.

Glass Cage Coverfavicon The Glass Cage is a neutral book about the pros and cons of technology and automation. I enjoyed it because I expected the book to be biased against technology, and I expected it to speak of the evils of modern technology. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised by the author’s neutrality and his ability to weigh the pros and the cons of technology and automation. It talks about how technology has been incredibly helpful and is the hallmark of our species. At the same time, the book also speaks of the dangers of its misuse and how we must balance the use of technology. favicon
