DARN: Somehow I managed to shave the final minutes off the video while recording! Still, the main points are covered.
A short video review of John Man’s book, The Gutenberg Revolution: How Printing Changed The Course Of History, on Johann Gutenberg, the inventor of the printing press and creator of the Gutenberg Bibles.
I discuss the merits of the book, how well written it is, the way that it deals nicely with the material, especially relating to the innovation and inventiveness of Gutenberg and how satisfying a read it is.
You can get a copy of the book here from rbooks, Random House’ customer facing bookstore.
