A PERSONAL JOURNEY INTOPOP AND TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGEOF THE LAST FIFTY YEARS

Available on Barnes & Noble

Armed with personal anecdotes and compelling historical insights, a former 1970’s paperboy explores pop culture, printed media, and the ever-changing technological age through a series of humorous and thought-provoking essays.

The days of our lives are like pages out of a newspaper, sprinkled with glory, tragedy and enigma, but when these pages are assembled together, they become the journal of our times and existence. It is this story that is told in how in just fifty years, Western culture has gone from culture to techno-culture—from the swinging sixties to rap, encyclopedia to Wikipedia, slide rule to supercomputer.

“The author does an amazing job weaving historical events and time-period activities with personal reflections and commentary through the topics of a "newspaper"-like book”. “This book offers readers a chance to reflect on where we have been, where we are now, and where we may be headed as a culture”.

“Gulesserian is at once humorous as he is witty and sarcastic, but it's the emotions he emanates that makes this an interesting read”.

“Gulesserian divides his book into sections much like a newspaper, with the Front-page News, followed by People Section, Arts & Entertainment, News, Sports, Lifestyle, Business & Technology, and finally the Editorial & Comment section: a testimonial and forerunner to the creative way the information in this book is discussed”.
