Appeared in Choice on 2008-09-01:
Lucas (information systems, Univ. of Maryland) discusses the revolutionary role of technology in today's world, especially in the areas of business, government, health care, and education. He argues that technology is fundamentally transformational insofar as it changes the way people live and work. Individuals and countries must constantly adapt to technology-induced transformations or risk falling behind in the world. Lucas identifies a number of rules that describe new directions in products, services, and leisure activities. He includes a framework for IT-enabled transformations. These rules and framework provide the basis for examining everyday events, online communities, services, e-government, manufacturing, telecommunications, health care, and education. An extended example of a company (Eastman Kodak) that failed to acknowledge and respond to technological change forms the basis of chapter 11. The book ends with a discussion of how to survive and flourish in the technological future. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers; all undergraduate and graduate students; researchers and practitioners. E. J. Szewczak Canisius College
