Reviews

This highly browsable collection will hold great appeal for anyone interested in the social aspects of technology, from tech lovers to pre-Internet nostalgists.
The prescient Nicholas Carr punches a hole in Silicon Valley hubris.--Rana Foroohar
Carr, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, takes on modern life's short attention spans and worship of the superficial in a . . . rapid-fire volley of ideas deceptively designed to engage at a depth greater than 140 characters. By turns wry and revelatory, and occasionally maddening, Carr succeeds at shaking the reader out of screen-zombie complacency.
[F]ull of wry vignettes and articles lampooning the motivated enthusiasm and game-changing promises of Silicon Valley's tech bro elite... by turns cute, funny or chilling. And it's more than the sum of its parts.--Sally Adee
Carr's best hits for those who missed the last decade of his stream of thoughtful commentary about our love affair with technology and its effect on our relationships.--Richard Cytowic
Bright, fun, telling. . . . A collection that reminds us that critical thinking is the best way to view the mixed blessings of rampant technology. A treat for Carr fans.
