Book Overview

In 1971 Dr. Theodore Kaczynski rejected modern society and moved to a primitive cabin in the woods of Montana. There, he began building bombs, which he sent to professors and executives to express his disdain for modern society, and to work on his magnum opus, Industrial Society and Its Future, forever known to the world as the Unabomber Manifesto. Responsible for three deaths and more than twenty casualties over two decades, he was finally identifed and apprehended when his brother recognized his writing style while reading the 'Unabomber Manifesto.' The piece, written under the pseudonym FC (Freedom Club) was published in the New York Times after his promise to cease the bombing if a major publication printed it in its entirety.

   Same as online version
This is just a book version of Unibomber's manifesto. It is much easier to read on my laptop than on my desktop. He has many valid points, but he is still a nut case. If we decided as a country to follow his recommendations, we would end up a third world country within a generation. I agree that a simple life is probably more rewarding, but if you live in society today, you must accept some degree of technology. It is his manifesto and he is trying to sound like he is actually representing a group, because of this it is not written very well, but is understandable and doesn 't ramble on too mich.

   Lazy money grab publishing job full of typos not in original text.
The actual manifesto is rife, but this edition is ripe with typos and misspellings. I compared it with the version on the nyt archive page and this version seems highly improbable, for example, through Paragraph 86 of the Nyt edition, rather than through... Paragraph 113 of the nyt version, it seems highly improbable, but if I could read it again, I would read the manifesto online, as it is widely available.

   Intriguing artifact
We all acknowledge that this manifesto would not have attracted any attention if it were not for Ted Kaczynski's demand for it to be published. It is not particularly well penned or organized, with typos giving it the appearance of a first draft. Nevertheless, Kaczynski makes a relevant point about the one-sided battle between technology and freedom, the point of view increasingly valid.

If you come this far and read reviews, just go for it. You will enjoy it, and if not, you will have challenged your beliefs in some way and are ready to live a better life. Whether that means sticking even harder to your beliefs or questioning them, I don 't know. But you 'll be happy that you read it.

   Sad
... that the brilliance of this man was wasted on terrorism, violence and death. This book has many foretelling ideas about today and out PC culture, censorship and general absurdities of today. He claims that we are actually slaves to the technology we create and which also over-complicates a lot of simple processes of our life. He may have been a madman, but he was incredibly intelligent. I can hardly add too much insight into this because I haven't yet read the whole thing and well... Amazon reviews is hardly an area where insightful scholarly reviews are needed. You can get this free online on pdf, but I like tangible items, so I bought it. It is appropriately bound for what it is and quite lengthy for an essay.
