About the Author

Theodore John Kaczynski, Ph.D. (a.k.a. Ted Kaczynski) has focused his life's work on sounding the alarm about society's paramount problem: the omnipresent, subjugating, and destructive force of technological progress. His extensive writings articulate a comprehensive critique of the global "techno-industrial system" and forecast its catastrophic consequences for humankind and the biosphere. His recent works focus on realistic strategies for collective action to alter the current trajectory of society, and avoid unmitigated disaster. Dr. Kaczynski was born in 1942 in Evergreen Park, Illinois.

Reviews

"He is clearly a Luddite, but simply saying this does not dismiss his argument... As difficult as it is for me to acknowledge, I saw some merit in the reasoning in [Kaczynski's writing]." Bill Joy, founder of Sun Microsystems, Wired Magazine
"There is nothing in [ISAIF] that looks at all like the work of a madman. The language is clear, precise and calm. The argument is subtle and carefully developed, lacking anything even faintly resembling the wild claims or irrational speculation that a lunatic might produce." James Q. Wilson, Ph.D., former president of the American Political Science Association
"Kaczynski understands what those of us more fully participating in the technological system are unable to fully appreciate: that technological society is beyond rational human control and will result in cataclysmic harm. What he presents is a sound moral argument with what should be eye-opening historical social illustrations that are, together, too numerous to refute." Jai Galliott, Ph.D., School of Engineering and Information Technology, UNSW Canberra
"His work, despite his deeds, deserves a place alongside Brave New World , by Aldous Huxley, and 1984 , by George Orwell." Dr. Keith Ablow, Fox News
"I recommend that you read this compelling perspective on how we can frame our struggles in a technological society." The Tech , MIT's oldest and largest newspaper
" Anti-Tech Revolution is a true milestone in thinking about technology. It is a well-researched, well-written, and thoroughly-documented work dedicated to undermining the technological system before its worst consequences become reality. Nothing else like it exists. All those concerned with the future of humanity and the planet would do well to study it carefully." Prof. David Skrbina, University of Michigan, Dearborn
"There are more than a few people who feel that society's rush toward a technological future will lead to disaster . . . This is very highly recommended." Midwest Book Review
"In this thoughtful book, Dr. Kaczynski provides a blueprint for the radical anti-technology movement. If you want to stop AI before it's too late, this may be your best bet." Dylan Evans, Ph.D., author, The Utopia Experiment
