Este é um livro sobre livros, uma apologia descarada em favor da palavra impressa e seu passado, presente e futuro. É também uma discussão sobre o lugar dos livros no ambiente digital que se tornou uma realidade essencial da vida para milhões de seres humanos. Longe de deplorar os modos eletrônicos de comunicação, quero explorar as possibilidades de aliá-los ao poder desencadeado por Johannes Gutenberg há mais de cinco séculos.

Quale è il futuro del libro nell’epoca del digitale, della digitalizzazione dei contenuti, dei fingerspitzengefuhl? Le modifiche nelle abitudini di fruizione della cultura, anche scientifica, sono una naturale evoluzione della società o sono state indotte dai grandi attori mondiali del digitale? Darnton fa un lavoro di ricostruzione della storia del libro, passando celermente all’analisi del presente e con la puntualità dello studioso dimostra gli errori commessi a livello pubblico delegando la gestione della conservazione del patrimonio culturale a soggetti privati. Dal problema dell’onerosità degli abbonamenti alle riviste scientifiche che incide sulla capacità dei centri di ricerca di sostenere le nuove pubblicazioni ai rischi connessi alla digitalizzazione dei libri da Google, Darnton procede con un’analisi puntuale e spietata, proponendo soluzioni e fornendo spunti di riflessione importanti. Esiste un futuro per il libro se ci lavoriamo a livello collettivo, questa è la conclusione cui giunge lo studioso americano. ( )

This book was okay. It wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible either. I liked learning about the troubles of bibliographers and stuff like that, but I felt that the book as a whole was a bit disjointed. This is mostly because it is made up of a series of essays that were already in existence. Another issue I had with the book was the structure of it. The future of books is dealt with first, followed by the present and finally the past. He follows a bit of how the book-making process goes about; in the seventeenth century. The author is no Jules Verne, he predicts something about Google's digitizing books and a lot of the first chapters is devoted to that.

The author repeats himself several times also, since each chapter is a different essay typed up at a different time. So then, he repeats himself about the expenses of professional journal subscriptions. For instance, at the time of publishing, a year subscription to some neurology journal is around 25000 USD. That is about the price of a new car, if you don't want a Maserati or something... In any case, he talks about how this has caused a downward spiral of research libraries cutting back and University presses making less Monographs. It's all very sad.

The message of the author is apparent though; books aren't going to just disappear. Since electronic media is rather vulnerable to mistakes and other ways to ruin files it makes sense to have a hard copy available. Even microfiche, the darling of libraries in the 1960's and such is not immune to the bite of time. Paper Books are a lot more hardy than previously thought and although they take up a lot of space, they are a good way to spread information.

I don't need to read this again, and since it is a library book, I doubt I will take it out again. ( )

A good book about Google, the issues on access and ownership of public domain books, and a few other topics of interest to bibliophiles and writers. Worth reading for me, though the latter half of the book might be a tad esoteric for non-bibliomaniacs. ( )

I'm having a hard time deciding what this book is more guilty of: false advertising or unreadable dryness.

If you think this is a book about the history of books and how books fit into people's lives differently in the new "eBook age", you would be wrong. As was I.

What Darnton has done here is slap together ten or so essays he had written in the past (like from 30 years ago up to 7 years ago) that sort of, kind of, have to do with the way book publishing has changed as the world moved into the Internet age, but mostly they just go off-topic to long diatribes about his favorite 18th century works or endless thoughts about Google Book Search. (Honestly, in the first half of the book I was convinced this was just a book about Google Book Search and the lawsuits attached to it.)

This book was originally published in 2009, when this mountain of information about GBS would have been up-to-date and possibly engaging. In 2015 it is already incredibly dated and uninteresting. When you throw in other articles written in the 1990s about the idea of books turning digital, it becomes a disjointed, and oftentimes discusses newspapers more than it does books themselves.

The major problem with throwing together all of these out-of-date articles, despite the fact that they sort of touch on the same subject, is that they become nothing but a repository about how one man saw the transformation of printed works move into the digital age as it happened. It creates no linear history and does not call into account a broader discussion of how these changes affected society on the whole.

I was intensely disappointed by the book and I feel almost shocked at how happy I am to be finished with it. ( )

Darnton's thoughts are provocative, but his assemblage of essays, reviews and scholarly articles, many previously published in the New York Review of Books, doesn't quite measure up to the task. Some of the material is very recent, some was first published in the 1980s. As Darnton confesses, these pieces were "fired off, scattershot". The same concerns emerge over and over, with an insistence that comes to seem obsessive. In the final part of the book, essays on subjects such as the history of the commonplace book or the complex origins of Shakespearean bibliography unexpectedly appear. They are intriguing and accomplished, but the investigation of such matters is unlikely to interest readers eager to learn about the pressing consequences of Google's imperialism or the changing prospects for e-texts. Darnton is not clear about who should read this book and why. The result is a muddle.
