This book explores the consequences of technological alienation on individuals and communities in the modern time. We have already started witnessing situations in which those who are alienated from technologies are at the mercy of those who are “in the know” and this may even lead to the creation of something like a new class system based on technology literacy. This book explores complex technologies, presents ways of identifying the levels of alienation and suggests remedies for overcoming the alienation and becoming better and empowered users of technology.

The book offers alienation scales in questionnaires at the end of every chapter dealing with technology alienation which would serve very handy for the readers. Replete with examples and written in lucid language, its humourous, tongue-in-cheek style will engage the reader.
