A hilarious call-to-arms for everyone infuriated by 21st century technology, from iPhones to e-readers to self-service checkout

If you point my smart phone at the sky, its star-gazing app can supposedly identify and name planets outside of our galaxy. Extraordinary—but even more extraordinary is that it can't actually make telephone calls. Trying to get a signal on it is like searching for the Yeti—some people believe it exists but you would probably have to trek to the Himalayas to find it.

For those who yearn for the good old days before one needed a degree in computer programming just to make a phone call, this is the perfect book, rebelling against the crazes and popularity of the unfathomable trappings of the contemporary world. Technophobes who have found themselves shouting at a recorded voice on the phone, been driven crazy by the illogical pricing of train tickets, or found themselves drowning in a sea of half-remembered passwords, have found their manifesto.
