It would not be wrong to call ‘ The In­for­ma­tion’ a per­fect guide into our present and fu­ture tech­no­log­i­cal cen­tury. The whole of hu­man­ity is thor­oughly en­gaged with in­for­ma­tion since mil­len­nia. James Gle­ick re­gards this as ‘ the blood, the fuel and the vi­tal prin­ci­ple of the world.’

Gle­ick bases the hu­man de­vel­op­ment of ma­te­rial, knowl­edge and be­lief on how in­for­ma­tion moulds it. By de­scrib­ing in­for­ma­tion in math­e­mat­i­cal and sci­en­tific terms, he has en­thralled the geeks of the cur­rent in­for­ma­tion age
