Time Wars is for anyone who has ever wondered why, in a culture so obsessed with efficiency, we seem to have so little time we can call our own. Rifkin envisions a culture emancipated from the tyranny of digital watches, cellular phones, and computers - a culture that sets its pace to life's natural rhythms and can accommodate the past. He offers a courageous, thought-provoking challenge to conventional wisdom. This controversial polemic argues that "slow is beautiful" has already become a focal point in the ongoing debate about America's identity in the computer era.
