One of the biggest issues raised in this book was the idea
that people are starting to forget more about books and what they

Since the beginning of time, people have been recording
things they saw, did and took part in on birch bark and later

that technology yet.
Who would we study and learn about, if no
one had written things. Man kind would be studying the man who
had invented the television because he would have been able to
