Reviews

"Standage captures quite beautifully the essence of the human need to connect and interact, both its banality and world-altering power." --Publishers Weekly

"A thoroughly fascinating look at the evolution of social media." --Booklist, starred review

"Provocative . . . a wealth of information." --The New York Times Book Review

"Standage has just this one big point to make, but he makes it elegantly and instructively . . . what we tend to regard as the radiant novelty of the digital age may really be a rebirth." --The Wall Street Journal

"Tom Standage once again displays his ingenious gift for connecting our historical past to the debates and technologies of the present day." --Steven Johnson, author of Future Perfect and Where Good Ideas Come From
