Reviews
"Hidden Systems is the book I'll use to teach my kids how the internet works....incredibly readable." --The Verge

★ "The true power of comics is on display here, with complex, difficult-to-comprehend structures presented both through a variety of metaphors and by placing those metaphors in context with simplified renditions of their real physical appearance." --Booklist, starred review

"Performs a valuable service."-- Kirkus Reviews

"A necessary introductory approach to everyday systems that briefly interrogates the bias and inequalities imbedded within them." --Publishers Weekly
