I'm researching the influence of movable type upon the Renaissance and Reformation. William Manchester's book "A World Lit Only By Fire" got me started.

Excellent, well-reasoned book. I recommend it.

You might also enjoy Barbara Tuchman's "In Search Of Folly". It deals with the Reformation, but it also deals with those who feel that an iPhone is the be-all and end-all of technology.
