In typical Dick Morley fashion, the Father of the PLC doesnA't hold back expressing his views on a world undergoing major technological change. From start to finish, this easy-to-read book reveals DickA's strong opinions on technological analysis, predictive success, and some theory regarding marketing in engineering and industry, as well as a little food for thought on PLCs. Any proposed plans seldom survive such an autopsy. Dick skewers conventional wisdom and provides insight into his unique reality. He strongly recommends you have two cups of coffee before digesting his latest thought-provoking prose. Good luck! AqThere are plenty of people who write about the future and technological changes. Morley not only writes about the future, heA's helped create it. HeA's not only analyzed changes, heA's driven them. HeA's one of the few, not the plenty.Aq qGary S.
