「Johnson提供了一個有趣的反直覺論點:工業革命、民主與電腦時代乃是由歷史學家太常忽略的多樣性與品味所驅動的。」
--《柯克斯》星級評論

「以一種有趣易懂的風格,作者將離題的事物帶到有時讓人驚訝的結論,就像魔術師刻意誤導...Johnson以一種賦予日常概念新意的方式連接每一個點。」

From the New York Times bestselling author of "How We Got to Now" and "Where Good Ideas Come From", a look at the world-changing innovations we made while keeping ourselves entertained. 

This lushly illustrated history of popular entertainment takes along-zoom approach, contending that the pursuit of novelty and wonder is a powerful driver of world-shaping technological change. Steven Johnson argues that, throughout history, the cutting edge of innovation lies wherever people are working the hardest to keep themselves and others amused. 
Johnson s storytelling is just as delightful as the inventions he describes, full of surprising stops along the journey from simple concepts to complex modern systems. He introduces us to the colorful innovators of leisure: the explorers, proprietors, showmen, and artists who changed the trajectory of history with their luxurious wares, exotic meals, taverns, gambling tables, and magic shows. 

Johnson compellingly argues that observers of technological and social trends should be looking for clues in novel amusements. You ll find the future wherever people are having the most fun.
