Audible Editor Reviews

The text you are now reading was easily copied and dispersed by a complex machine intended for just that purpose. If it’s tough to imagine a world in which such machines did not exist, now would be a good time to remind yourself of that most significant of revolutionary technologies: the printing press. In this audiobook, iMinds gives the listener a quick but fascinating history of moveable type, from its origins in 11th-century Asia to its improvement in 15th-century Germany, and its continued evolution ever since. Through the kindly Australian voice of Todd MacDonald, listeners will refresh their memory and their appreciation of a technology that is too easily taken for granted.
