Cybernetics or Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine, second edition

Overview

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

Endorsements

“It appears impossible for anyone seriously interested in our civilization to ignore this book. It is a ‘must’ book for those in every branch of science...in addition, economists, politicians, statesmen, and businessmen cannot afford to overlook cybernetics and its tremendous, even terrifying implications. It is a beautifully written book, lucid, direct, and despite its complexity, as readable by the layman as the trained scientist.”
John B. Thurston , The Saturday Review of Literature
