I have often thought that the twentieth century will go down in history as the century of noise
We tolerated noise from vacuum cleaners, engines, jackhammers, exploding things, and the incessant hum of computers and printers and the high-pitched squeal of television monitors, and traffic; that is, we tolerated it until we grew deaf to the noise. (p. 20)
