I read this book in my constant quest for more information that I can use for my masters paper.

Unfortunately, it didn't prove particularly useful, nor was it particularly interesting. It seemed quite dry to be honest, and dated with its large sections dedicated to hypertext (although, to be fair, the title did make it pretty clear that hypertext was surely going to be addressed more than just in passing).

However, for someone who is focusing on the technological aspect of writing in the computer age, this could be useful. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805829199, Paperback)

This second edition of Jay David Bolter's classic text expands on the objectives of the original volume, illustrating the relationship of print to new media, and examining how hypertext and other forms of electronic writing refashion or "remediate" the forms and genres of print. Reflecting the dynamic changes in electronic technology since the first edition, this revision incorporates the Web and other current standards of electronic writing. As a text for students in composition, new technologies, information studies, and related areas, this volume provides a unique examination of the computer as a technology for reading and writing.
