Distrust That Particular Flavor

Author/Editor: 

William Gibson

This is an enjoyable and interesting collection of non-fiction essays from one of the best speculative fiction writers around. The insight into the sometimes surprising ways in which people interact with technology and how that shapes our culture and cities that is evident in Gibson's fiction writing also shows here. I suspect the book has primarily been read by fans of Gibson's fiction, its potential appeal is broader than that, and I'd recommend the book to anyone who is interested in how culture evolves.
