Product description

Acclaimed one of the "seminal books...comparable in ultimate importance to...Galileo or Malthus or Rousseau or Mill," Cybernetics was judged by twenty-seven historians, economists, educators, and philosophers to be one of those books published during the "past four decades," which may have a substantial impact on public thought and action in the years ahead. -- Saturday Review

Review quote

"It appers impossible for anyone seriously interested in ourcivilization to ignore this book. It is a 'must' book forthose in every branch of science... in addition, economists,politicians, statesmen, and businessmen cannot afford to overlookcybernetics and its tremendous, even terrifying implications."It is a beautifully written book, lucid, direct, and despite itscomplexity, as readable by the layman as the trained scientist." John B. Thurston , The Saturday Review of Literature
