An eloquence that is hard to argue against ... Every time you log on, you are adding to a fire that is burning your house down -- Danny Fortson * Sunday Times * A witty and fiercely intelligent attack on the ethics and business model of big tech and a romping read to boot. Lanier is a modern day Luther, calling for a digital reformation and nailing his theses to the door -- Tom Hodgkinson, The Idler Indispensable. Everyone who wants to understand the digital world, its pitfalls and possibilities should read this book - now -- Matthew d'Ancona, author of Post-Truth In every chapter there is a principle so elegant, so neat, sometimes even so beautiful, that what is billed as straight polemic becomes something much more profound -- Zoe Williams * Guardian * One of the most optimistic books about the Internet I've ever read because it dares to hope for better ... A blisteringly good, urgent, essential read -- Zadie Smith
