Six top books about technology

Graham Moore's new novel is The Last Days of Night. One of his six favorite books about technology, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

The 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, rendered masterfully by Larson as the backdrop for a serial killer's crimes, unveiled more than its fair share of technologies, including George Ferris' big wheel, spray paint, and Juicy Fruit gum. Larson puts us on the ground in Chicago with a public trying to take it all in.
The Devil in the White City is among Jeff Somers's eight top true crime books, Dell Villa's top five literary escapes to American cities, and Randy Dotinga's five favorite historical true-crime books from the last decade.
