Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

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.


Review:

"Nicholas Negroponte is an engaging guide to the evolving new world. His prose is airy and conversational, and his enthusiasm for his topic all one could wish. Some readers may be troubled by a nonchalant lack of systematic exposition, but to read 'Being Digital' is to enter the future it describes, sort of like researching a topic on the Internet, following one's interests wherever fancy dictates."

Samuel C. Florman, New York Times Book Review, 2/5/95

Review:

"Negroponte explains well what the digital approach is all about and gives many trenchant examples of its power."

Charles Herzfeld, Scientific American
