A Century Turns By William J Bennett

Posted on: March 1, 2010

In electronics, there is a pattern, every year chips become twice more powerful, and their cost becomes half, or even less. This means you get more computing power for a lesser price. They say if this continues, at one point the processing power will become almost free.
Now what that has to do with a book about American History?
A lot, I would say. In this fantastic book, New York times best-selling author William J Bennett tells us why the last 20 years (1988 to 2008) is very important in history. Not only for America, but the globe as a whole. The kind of changes world has gone through in these twenty years, it seems as if we have not one, but two worlds in two sides of this (relatively) short period.
The link with Electronics field is, every year there are more incidents, changes happening around us than all the years before this put together. We don’t notice it, But its always happening. This well researched book gives glimpses of what America has gone through in these years and why these changes are worth noting. It can also become a mini guide for us to expect, or handle what is going to happen in next twenty years.
After watching the differences brought out by William Bennett, I feel may be such drastic changes will happen in not 20, But next 2 years itself. Thats the pace in which we are going and this book is an eye opener to stay sensible in the middle of all these. I recommend this to all those who prefer reading history with an analysis tone.
