About the book:

Most effects of technology are well known, but what about the effect upon morality? Technical solutions to moral problems is the subject of this book. The lead story, "Since It Was Possibleâ¦" concerns Susan Anderson's possible abortion. "One Snowy, Wet Night" portrays Fred Asher as a statistic. "Winners" shows Carol Linley as the quasi new woman of the technological age. (She struggles with a sexual malfunction.) In "Block," Gloria Carlin becomes childlike in order to succeed in a progressive education class. "Born Again" has Susan Anderson up and running thanks to the tutelage of Thelma Peabody, a clumsy yet somewhat effective evangelist. In "Este Vato (This Kid)" Jerry Blake quits the teaching nightmare brought on by the legal technique of due process. "The Monkey Wrench" is Tris Cavenaugh, whose irrationality nearly drives a friend to suicide. The final story, "Bravado," ends the book with a savagely ironic portrayal of Woody Stoles and the superiority of American technological know-how in underdeveloped Guatemala.
