Summary
This book addresses questions such as: Why will the Amish ride in cars but refuse to drive them?; How can their old-fashioned farms turn a profit while many modern farms go broke?; Do they ever change their customs? Who decides, and how?; If they'll use pay phones, why not have a phone in the house?; and Why will they use electronic calculators but not computers?
