Reviews

"Fascinating . . . powerful writing . . . a tour de force survey of the economic history of the modern world . . . [an] enlightening and consciousness-raising experience."--The Miami Herald

"This is a provocative and controversial look at the dark side of corporatist effects on our economy. . . . Whether or not you agree with Douglas Rushkoff, you will find that this book challenges some of our basic assumptions about how our economy works."--Walter Isaacson

"There are few more important subjects in the West today than the corporatization of public and personal space, and few writers as well suited to the subject as the always insightful and provocative Doug Rushkoff. Life Inc is a terrific contribution to an urgent debate."--Naomi Wolf, author of Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries

"A visionary work powered by moral passion and resting on solid historical research."--Blogger News Network

"This is an urgent book. Like all great books, it will open your eyes to a whole new way of thinking."--Seth Godin, author of Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us
