Reviews

"Well-timed...a powerful indictment of the current system." -- THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

"Eli Pariser is no enemy of the Internet. The 30-year-old online organizer is the former executive director and now board president of the online liberal political group MoveOn.org. But while Pariser understands the influence of the Internet, he also knows the power of online search engines and social networks to control exactly how we get information--for good and for ill." -- TIME Magazine

"[An] important new inquiry into the dangers of excessive personalization... entertaining... provocative." -- THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"Fascinating...a compelling deep-dive into the invisible algorithmic editing on the web, a world where we're being shown more of what algorithms think we want to see and less of what we should see." -- ATLANTIC.COM

"Pariser's vision of the Internet's near future is compelling." -- THE BOSTON GLOBE

"Chilling."
-- THE NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS
