Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A thoughtful critique of "machine-centered" corporate technology from the author of The Design of Everyday Things .
Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Humans have always worked with objects to extend our cognitive powers, from counting on our fingers to designing massive supercomputers. But advanced technology does more than merely assist with thought and memory--the machines we create begin to shape how we think and, at times, even what we value. Norman, in exploring this complex relationship between humans and machines, gives us the first steps towards demanding a person-centered redesign of the machines that surround our lives. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
