If you've replaced a computer lately--or a cell phone, a camera, a television--chances are, the old one still worked.

Welcome to the world of planned obsolescence--a business model, a way of life, and a uniquely American invention that this eye-opening book explores from its beginnings to its perilous implications for the very near future.
