I gave it 2 stars because it didn't make me want to quit school altogether...
The essays go back and forth how society and technology affect each other. Essays cover almost everything from philosophy, to technology, to politics written by both critics and enthusiasts that really try to write for students, and they do so well.
I gave it a three because at many times it can be quite interesting, many essays are extremely boring and make you want to just put it down.
