Why Things Bite Back is an incredible work of scholarship, and Jules Vernesque in it's prescience. It outlines a terminology that accurately defines the myriad ways that technology can go terribly awry; by giving us the term Revenge Effect, mr Tenner tells us EXACTLY how our shortsightedness & hubris have given us realities we hadn't quite bargained for. Required Reading for anyone who remains mystified as to why Modern Life isn't the Playland Of Tomorrow we were promised Yesterday. That, and why Red Fire Ants are Here. To. Stay.
This book is from 1997 and makes references to electromechanical calculators, and dial telephones.
The theory may still be relevant, but the book and its examples are not.
