    One thought on “When Technology Wounds: The Human Consequences of Progress”

    1. I gave this book three stars, not because it's not interesting or well writte per se, but more because of its format. There's a lot of listing names with their symptoms or issues. This is fine but I found it distracting at times from the narrative. However, Glendinning does have some insights that I found enlightening on a subject so taken for granted: progress.

    2. This book was disjointed and and repetitive. Some of the stories were interesting and heartbreaking but they were told over and over in tiny parts in different chapters. Many of the stories made a bleep on my skepticism radar but some seemed genuine. More organization in the book's structure would have made this book more readable, but there was much to be desired in its content as well.
