But to gain maximum benefit from this breakthrough, microelectronics must be harnessed to society's needs. To help this process a multidisciplinary group of authors has prepared a report to the Club of Rome on the likely impact of microelectronics on our futures

@qu:...well thought out, comprehensive....Some of the essays stand out as simply admirable statements of the state of the art....Foremost among these is Ide's essay, 'The Technology'. Ide offers a good overview of the developmental history of computing, a clear and readable discussion of just what microprocessors are and their use in various kinds of implementations. What is especially nice about this essay is its ability to make the reader understand what is rather recondite engineering without resorting to unhappy technicality. This essay alone may be worth the price of the book.
