"Will we fall down the rabbit hole into the Cyberland of technology filled with smartphones and devices where we no longer engage with each other as human beings? Kilham's new book explores how we can stimulate our creativity to learn and solve problems while maintaining our humanity. This provocative look at the new intellectual ecology of technology's instant answers and feel-good solutions is a worth-while read." - Victoria Wagner Ross, Technology Reviewer, San Diego Examiner
"Readers will find Larry Kilham's illuminating new book, The Digital Rabbit Hole, which explores the key role of smartphones and other digital advances in modern day life to be both enlightening and frightening!" - Dr. Jeremy A. Sabloff, Past President, Santa Fe Institute
"A superb read for all and especially for every parent and educator worried about the time our kids spend with video screens! The analogy is perfect to illustrate how rapidly advancing connectivity and the 'Knowosphere' accessibility have combined to create a rabbit hole into wonderland into which one can so easily fall today. But the stakes are high including our own humanity as we know it!" - Dr. Joseph R. Stetter, Pioneer in sensor technology and Internet of Things Developer
