Praise

“Nimble and persuasive … Drawing on unusually candid interviews with a series of tech insiders and writing in terms that nontechnical readers can understand, Ball pulls away the software curtain to reveal a more complex institutional and corporate history … This book is refreshing and necessary.” —The New York Times Book Review

“An excellent summary of how we got where we are, and how we can move forward to build a better internet”—Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia

“A fascinating exposé of the world behind your screen. Timely, often disturbing, and so important.” —Carolina Criado Perez, author of Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

“Every chapter in this book — from the material on surveillance to that on global, networked soft power — has real bearing on the pandemic world….Could not be more timely.” —Cory Doctorow, The Spectator

“An illuminating and focused guide on who controls the internet and how it control us. Will change how you see the world.” —Peter Pomerantsev, author of Nothing is True and Everything is Possible: The Surreal Heart of the New Russia
