Great advice above. If you were going to choose just one convention book for the Technocracy, I might choose the newest book for the NWO (dated 2012). If I am not mistaken, it's the first in the line of 'recent' Technocracy books, so it takes some time to give a picture of how things have changed from the Revised edition of the game (which launched in 2000 and closed out in 2004). That 8-12 years of technological development changes so much for the dynamics of the Technocracy and their rivals.
