I loved this book. I was completely engaged from beginning to end. It's light on plot and heavy on character study, which means it won't appeal to everyone. But I was quite engaged because there were so many levels of insight into these characters and the book seems to define the life and times of middle class americans born in the sixties.
I will never look at web 2.0 sites, human learning, midi or the open source movements the same way again. Jaron handles each complex topic in extremely precise and well-considered language. Unfortunately, the chapters are not ordered with the same precision. Normally the rambling around would probably cause me to loose interest, but there are so many truly insightful and mind-bending ideas in this book that it is well worth the ramble. I consider this one of the most amazing books I've ever read.
