Bei der englischen Übersetzung und Neubearbeitung ‘Technology Guide‘ ist alles ... besser geworden: Text, Gestaltung, Struktur und Bebilderung dieser transdisziplinären Zusammenarbeit ist einfach hervorragend. Dieses Buch ist der Versuch einer rnehrdimensionalen Vernetzung der wichtigsten Technologien. ... Das Buch ist eine ‘Tour d’horizon‘ der Sonderklasse. Es ist kapitelweise zu lesen und sollte jederzeit griffbereit sein. Alle Bilder, Grafiken und Darstellungen sind farbig und wirklich wissensvermittelnd. Das ‘Lesebuch‘ legt man nicht gerne aus der Hand. ... ein Nachschlagewerk der Kategorie: Muss man haben!“ (http://www.wissenschaft-online.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=1023580&_druckversion=%201)
"The work is beautifully presented in a highly accessible format. It is a most important publication that will no-doubt help to demystify "technology" in modern society." Professor Leon Liebenberg
