... My compliments for your work in developing Technology, Humans, and Society. I am excited to know that some of us on the technology side are willing to help bridge the gap between the demands of business/technology and the vital long term issues of social and environmental responsibility. Hopefully, your text will find its way into undergraduate engineering and business curricula... the next generation is our best hope for establishing a balanced and sustainable world. --Ron Mascitelli, President of Technology Perspectives and author of the forthcoming book, Building a Project-Driven Enterprise "Making all the information of this book available in one place is a significant service. One hopes that the issue of sustainability will be debated widely in the next few years. At the very least, Technology, Humans, and Society will give people the fundamental knowledge and the vocabulary to make that debate meaningful." --Barrett Hazeltine, Lehigh University's Science, Technology & Society Newsletter "...
