It’s the latest from James Gleick, The Information, out on unabridged audiobook CD from Random House Audio. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
The Information is a chronicle of the information and the many technologies that we have developed–from abaci to iPads–for manipulating, communicating, storing and organizing what we know, and how those devices change how we think. The Information is Jim Gleick’s most important audiobook since Chaos and Genius. Together the three form a remarkable trilogy. Chaos was the story of an emerging science. Genius was the biography of the great American physicist and how his contribution changed the face of 20th century physics. And, now with The Information, Gleick offers us the history of an idea that is coeval with human history, underlies the very possibility of that history and how our understanding of information is not only transforming how we look at the world, but how we live. This book fulfills the promise exhibited in those earlier books, and will provide an occasion that will confirm Gleick’s great ability for exploring and explaining our age’s defining idea.
