Praise

“For the last several centuries, many of our deeply held beliefs have been shaped by the view that human beings are fundamentally motivated by self-interest. In his latest work, Benkler (The Wealth of Networks) challenges this long-held view, asserting that the spirit of human cooperation is stronger than selfishness a view that will likely revolutionize business, economics, technology, government, and human interaction in the future… His pertinent examples bring his ideas to life.”
Publishers Weekly

“Yochai Benkler is the smartest thinker we have on the effects of the internet on society. In The Penguin and the Leviathan, he lays out the ways that larger, looser, freer collaborations are transforming how we think about work and about the value we give and get from each other.”
—Clay Shirky, bestselling author of Here Come Everybody and Cognitive Surplus

“Benkler speaks the truth on every page — presenting a brighter vision of human nature that we keep insist on denying for no good reason.” 
—Tim Wu, bestselling author of The Master Switch and professor, Columbia Law School

“…a solid swipe at blind adherence to “free market” dogma. Comprehensive and provocative.”
-Kirkus
