Product description

Review

Pacey and chilling... A powerful, frightening read -- Bryan Appleyard ― Sunday Times

Andrew Keen's pleasingly incisive study argues that, far from being a democratising force in society, the internet has only amplified global inequities. -- John Naughton ― Observer

A punchy manifesto about the future and integrity of the internet age... This book is a must-read for anyone remotely concerned about their lives on the net. ― Independent

The most compelling, persuasive and passionately negative thing I've yet read on this topic. It offers a scary picture of how the ultra-libertarian superstars of Silicon Valley are leading us inexorably into a future with the sort of social inequalities not seen in the West since the early days of the Industrial Revolution. -- Kazuo Ishiguro ― 'Books of the Year', New Statesman

Keen has a sharp eye when it comes to skewering the pretensions and self-delusions of the new digital establishment ― Financial Times

Extremely well-researched and well-written -- William Hartston ― Daily Express

A packed compendium of all the ways digital life casts aside basic human virtues in favor of a rapacious, winner-takes-all economy. Out of Silicon Valley's libertarian ethos came the myths that information "wants to be free" and that the Internet is fueling a cooperative new utopianism. Keen is excellent at exposing the hypocrisy of that mythology. -- Michael Harris ― Washington Post

Andrew Keen has written a very powerful and daring manifesto questioning whether the Internet lives up to its own espoused values. He is not an opponent of Internet culture, he is its conscience, and must be heard. ― Po Bronson

Andrew Keen has again shown himself one of the sharpest critics of Silicon Valley hype, greed, egotism, and inequity. His tales are revealing, his analyses biting. ― Mark Bauerlain, author of The Dumbest Generation

Keen provokes us in every sense of the word-at times maddening, more often thought-provoking, he lets just enough out of the Silicon Valley hot air balloon to start a real conversation about the full impact of digital technology. ― Larry Downes, co-author of Unleashing the Killer App

About the Author

Andrew Keen is one of the world's best-known and controversial commentators on the digital revolution.

He is executive director of the Silicon Valley innovation salon FutureCast, the host of the popular Internet chat show 'Keen On', a Senior Fellow at CALinnovates, a columnist for CNN and a much acclaimed public speaker around the world. In 2015, he was named by GQ magazine in their list of the '100 Most Connected Men'.
