I just posted a pdf here that is the entire first chapter of the book: The Alphabet Versus the Goddess: The Conflict Between Word and Image.
Here is the first paragraph:
Of all the sacred cows allowed to run unimpeded in our culture, few are as revered as literacy. Its benefits have been so incontestable that in the five millennia since the advent of the written word numerous poets and writers have extolled it's virtues. Few paused to consider its costs. Sophocles once warned, "Nothing vast enters the life of mortals without a curse." The invention of writing was vast; this book will investigate the curse.
