Brianne Kimmel: "One of my favorite books!"
One of 10 biographies Jason Calacanis recommends reading.
Matt Ridley: "A fascinating, surprising and beautifully written history of technology, economics, and culture, told through the thread of textiles, humanity's most indispensable artefacts. I loved it."
Marc Andreessen: "The story of technology is a story of human ingenuity, and nowhere is this more clear than in the story of textiles: the original technology, going beyond what we commonly think of as 'tech.'
As with many technologies, we suffer an amnesia about them when we enjoy them in abundance, as Postrel observes; her book gives us back our memories about this technology that we use every day without even knowing it."
Brianne Kimmel: "Nadia Eghbal’s book is a future classic."
Brianne Kimmel: "Read Bowling Alone by Robert Putnam. One of my favorite books"
