    This is a good foundation for some of the early work in this field. It is a bit of a time-trip right now. It is worth re-reading because of things going on in virtual worlds right now. Rheingold is a little too damn happy about technology but it is an informative and entertaining book.

    Pretty interesting view on the state of VR in early 90s. Some chapters were awesome and some felt a big longer.

    This book covers the historical development of virtual reality from the origin by Sutherland to developments in the late 1980s. The book also give insight into the cognitive transformation which virtual reality will bring to mankind. I recommend this book as a first teaching book in the study of a VR.
