Faster: The Acceleration of Just About Everything

by James Gleick

Title Details

Abridged Edition
Running Time
5 Hrs. 10 Min.


From the best-selling, National Book Award-nominated author of Genius and Chaos, a bracing new work about the accelerating pace of change in today's world.

Most of us suffer some degree of "hurry sickness" - a malady that has launched us into the "epoch of the nanosecond", a need-everything-yesterday sphere dominated by cell phones, computers, faxes, and remote controls. Yet for all the hours, minutes, and even seconds being saved, we're still filling our days to the point that we have no time for such basic human activities as eating, sex, and relating to our families.

Written with fresh insight and thorough research, Faster is a wise and witty look at a harried world not likely to slow down anytime soon.
