The Big Switch: Rewiring the World, from Edison to Google by Nicholas Carr read book description and reviews

“Magisterial. . . . Draws an elegant and illuminating parallel between the late-19th-century electrification of America and today’s computing world.”—Salon
Hailed as “the most influential book so far on the cloud computing movement” (Christian Science Monitor), The Big Switch makes a simple and profound statement: Computing is turning into a utility, and the effects of this transition will ultimately change society as completely as the advent of cheap electricity did. In a new chapter for this edition that brings the story up-to-date, Nicholas Carr revisits the dramatic new world being conjured from the circuits of the “World Wide Computer.”

    This book was a required reading for my college humanity class. This was a good read, despite it being required reading. I would have read this regardless. Carr's points are logical and interesting throughout the entire book.
