I used to teach a course at Northwestern University on Orality, Literacy, and Cybercy. I wish that this book had been written sooner so that I might have included in my course on the history of communications. Marshall Poe breaks the history into five eras: the eras of orality, writing, printing, audio-visual, and computers. Of course no medium drives out earlier media, but instead we accumulate different ways of communicating. As earlier writers such as Elizabeth Eisenstein, Harold Innis, Marshall McLuhan, Walter Ong, and Neil Postman have made clear, each new medium has profound effects on society.

Poe analyzes each of the five media in terms of eight critical characteristics: accessibility, privacy, fidelity, volume, velocity, range, persistence, and searchability. He looks at these from the point of view of both the sender and receiver. Most importantly he analyzes effect of these characteristics on social practices and cultural values. This is a grand theory about the effects of different media, and everyone who wants to understand how media affect society will find this book both well written and quite revealing.

While I was making a search on another subject I added it to the cart by mistake and then forgot to remove. So it was in my hands. It is very painful to send it back so I have decided to keep and read it. I haven'd finished, half way there yet, but it is a wonderful book, just a pleasure to read.

In less than 300 pages, Poe offers a thorough perspective on how humans came to be who we are and why we do what we do. . This book is both philosophically awesome and offers practical clues for anyone who believes that a mature understanding of communication is essential to effective living.

If you are an academic interested in this topic, this is probably a good book. I am an academic, but not in this area, and my interest is more general. As a result, I find this book tedious.
