Winchester traces the development of technology that has changed the modern world, from the Industrial Age to the Digital Age. He explores the single component crucial to advancement – precision. Winchester also examines fundamental questions: Why is precision important? Has the pursuit of the ultra-precise in so many facets of human life blinded us to other things of equal value, such as an appreciation for the age-old traditions of craftsmanship, art, and high culture? Can the precise and the natural coexist in society?
