The book makes a convincing case against any idea that computing technologies can save the world, whether it is to improve persistent challenges in education, healthcare, or governance.
It is a caution for overly optimistic computer science students, but it isn’t pessimistic — there are chapters about the best use of technology for social change. The main message is a very sensible one — that we technologists have to acknowledge the primacy of cultural and political factors in social change.
