Samenvatting

Alien Technology explores the consequences of technological alienation on individuals and communities in the modern times. The world is already witnessing situations in which those who are alienated from technologies are at the mercy of those who are in the know . This may even lead to the creation of a new kind of class system based on technology literacy. This book explores complex technologies, presents ways of identifying the levels of alienation, and suggests remedies for overcoming the alienation and becoming better and empowered users of technology. Replete with examples and written in lucid language, its humorous, tongue-in-cheek style will engage the reader.

[This book] is not about UFOs, three eyed aliens, mysterious crop pattern...Instead it is something extremely practical and useful to everyone though our awareness of it is very little...[The Author] explores the consequences of technological alienation in individuals, communities and countries that has led to a new caste system of the technically literate and technically illiterate, that is defining which country is a super power and which is not...The style of the author is engaging, humorous, easy to read as the reader is able to identify with the book on a personal level...[The book] is jargon free and the prose is clear and concise. This is an important book on a topic extremely relevant in the world we live in. -- Reading Hour
