Product Details


“Douglas Rushkoff is one of today’s most incisive media theorists and a provocative critic of our digital economy. He’s also fun to read.”
WALTER ISAACSON, president and CEO, The Aspen Institute, and author of The Innovators
“If you don’t know Rushkoff, you’re not serious about figuring out what’s going to happen next.”
SETH GODIN, author of Linchpin
“Thoughtful, provocative, and essential reading for our economic moment.”
JOI ITO, director, MIT Media Lab
“We’ve optimized for growth. But have we lost our way? As an economy? As a community? As a society with a value proposition that doesn’t make sense on a human or economic level? Rushkoff asks questions that matter. A challenging and necessary read.”
SHERRY TURKLE, author of Reclaiming Conversation
“Every great advance begins when someone sees that what everyone else takes for granted may not actually be true. Douglas Rushkoff questions the deepest assumptions of the modern economy and blazes a path toward a more human-centered world.”
TIM O’REILLY, founder, O’Reilly Media
“Douglas Rushkoff is a true digital visionary. Read this rousing call to reboot our society from the bottom up before it’s too late.”
ASTRA TAYLOR, filmmaker and author of The People’s Platform
“In what could be seen as a crisis, Rushkoff shares his smart, optimistic, and pragmatic perspective about how both businesses and consumers can reimagine today’s current economic operating system in the digital age—and prosper.”
BONIN BOUGH, chief media and e-commerce officer, Mondelēz

“Powerful truth telling… The crux of the argument that Rushkoff makes is that the digital economy is a house of cards built on fictional growth metrics that drive companies to raise money, undercut human workers, sell on the public markets and then—almost inevitably—collapse under the weight of public market demands.”
“A brilliant, bomb-hurling critique of the flaws in our digital economy, identifying what has gone wrong and what can be done about it.”
Financial Times
“A powerful exposé of an underdiscussed downside to the digital revolution.”
Kirkus Reviews
