Summary
  • "Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things.Have you ever thought seriously about your refrigerator? The box humming in the background actually displays who you are and the society in which you live. This book examines the past, present, and future of the electric household refrigerator with an eye towards preventing its users from ever taking it for granted again. No mere container for cold Cokes and celery stalks, the refrigerator is actually more like a mirror-and what it reflects is chilling indeed.Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in the The Atlantic"--
  • "Shows how the refrigerator, quietly humming in the background of our kitchens and our lives, reveals more about our culture, our society and ourselves than you ever imagined"--
