Signed by the author on the first blank — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. From the cover: “Virtual Reality is the name of a new interactive computer technology that creates the completely convincing illusion of being immersed in an artificial world that exists only inside a computer. Already the subject of massive media interest, virtual reality sounds like science fiction. But it is science fact with startling applications in everything from telecommunications to toys, from medicine to engineering, from educational tools to potentially addictive sensory and sexual experiences.

Howard Rheingold is the world’s foremost authority on the state of virtual reality research and development. His book is a guided tour through this brave new world, introducing us to the leading researchers and to their extraordinary inventions, and considering the philosophical, psychological, social and economic implications of this new technology which will transform our daily lives beyond recognition.”
