Synopsis

Habits of the High-Tech Heart addresses the major drawbacks to the network computerization of our society and the growing tendency to substitute technology and innovation for morality and virtue.

The solution is not to dismantle our growing technologies but to pay more attention to the "habits of the heart." Schultze calls for a renewal of community and offers readers ways to live by habits of the heart in the information age.
