"A wake up call for software buyers and sellers. The knowledge gap between business and IT must be closed for organizations to recognize the real business benefits of software solutions. Keller takes a practical 'back to basics' approach to this important issue."

"Although not its stated purpose, in reading Technology Paradise Lost, one sometimes gets the impression that the excesses of the bubble are inherent to the technology itself, and the value of the technology is thus called into question. Given the extremes of the era in which Keller participated, however, his cynicism seems entirely apropos."
-- Kevin Parker, Editor, MSI magazine

"One of the best business-oriented information management books I've read."
-- David F. Carr, Senior Technology Analyst, Baseline

「雖然這不是它所聲明的目的,但在閱讀《科技失樂園》時,有時會有一種印象,認為泡沫的過度是科技本身的固有特性,因此對科技的價值產生了質疑。然而,考慮到Keller參與其中的時代的極端情況,他的懷疑主義似乎完全恰當。」── Kevin Parker,MSI雜誌編輯

「這是我讀過的最好的以商業為導向的資訊管理書籍之一。」── David F. Carr,Baseline高級技術分析師
