Review: The Victorian Internet

VIcov.jpg The Victorian Internet by Tom Standage
My rating: 3 of 5 stars This book is a fascinating account of the history of the telegraph and how it changed the world. If you are a history and technology buff, you will definitely get a lot out of this book. Please don't be fooled by the title, however. This book does not make deep comparisons between the histories of the internet and the telegraph. A small chapter at the end of the book provides the only comparison between the two technologies. Even with this flaw, this is a solid technical history book, and I really feel like I gained a lot of perspective. View all my reviews >>
