Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai’s book The Future of Email has been listed in Reviewer’s Choice under the Small Press Bookwatch category. Here is what the website had to say about Dr. Shiva’s book:
Synopsis: Dr. V. A. Shiva Ayyadurai, the inventor of email and polymath, holds four degrees from MIT and is a world-renowned systems scientist. Dr. Shiva invented in the email system in 1978 (when he was a 14-year-old boy), to enable collaboration and communication among office workers at a small medical college in Newark, NJ.
He has now become the center of many controversies. For their 125th Anniversary issue, The Wall Street Journal commissioned him as email’s inventor to write a brief essay entitled “The Future of Email”. That article shared what email really is and where email is heading.
More recently, The New York Times interviewed him to comment on Hillary Clinton’s use of personal email server to manage classified U.S. government communications. In that article, Dr. Shvia shared that the use of a personal email server was extraordinary, wrong and clearly a well-planned strategy by Ms. Clinton to deny the American public’s rightful access to communications that were government property.
Now updated and expanded into a book, “The Future of Email ” is a much-needed expansion of those thoughts and comments in his previous articles to provide the American public with important insights as to where email is going and why they, as citizens, must take action to protect this important medium, which has been subverted by vested interests.
Critique: Impressively informative, exceptionally thoughtful and thought-provoking, “The Future of Email” is an extraordinary work that should be a part of every community, college, and university library collection. For personal reading lists of academia, public policy makers, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject.
