Carr's prose is elegant, and he has an exceptional command of the facts. He serves a varied menu of the ways that technology has failed us, and in every instance he is not only persuasive but undoubtedly right.--Daniel Levitin
[A] deeply informed reflection on computer automation.--G. Pascal Zachary
Brings a much-needed humanistic perspective to the wider issues of automation.--Richard Waters
Smart, insightful...paint[s] a portrait of a world readily handing itself over to intelligent devices.--Jacob Axelrad
One of Carr's great strengths as a critic is the measured calm of his approach to his material--a rare thing in debates over technology...Carr excels at exploring these gray areas and illuminating for readers the intangible things we are losing by automating our lives.--Christine Rosen
There have been few cautionary voices like Nicholas Carr's urging us to take stock, especially, of the effects of automation on our very humanness--what makes us who we are as individuals--and on our humanity--what makes us who we are in aggregate.--Sue Halpern
