About the Author
"Hyperreality is about a lot more than 'how our tools control us, ' as its subtitle promises. 'How our modern culture has gone badly wrong--and a possible way back for people' is the bigger message I read. Mulder's superb journalistic skills describe how our mad desires for wealth and consumer goods, for security and safety, and for social affirmation and acceptance are doomed to fail in our lived reality. . . . The 'hyper' reality on our screens seduces and distracts us away from the actual reality of people and nature all around us. . . . I will be recommending Hyperreality to all of my thoughtful, reflective friends."

"In the spirit of Ellul and Girard, Frank Mulder interrogates the extraordinarily virtual realities we now inhabit. Whether or not we share Mulder's faith in our inevitable deliverance, we can benefit from his keen insights on the way we have used technology to surround ourselves with illusions of choice, control, and immortality."
--Douglas Rushkoff, author of Present Shock and Team Human
