Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jonathan Taplin's Move Fast and Break Things argues that the radical libertarian ideology and monopolistic greed of many Silicon Valley entrepreneurs helped to decimate the livelihoods of musicians and is now undermining the communal idealism of the early internet."―Walter Isaacson, New York Times Book Review


"Taplin is uniquely poised to deliver us Move Fast and Break Things, a relentless critique that seeks to answer the above question of why the internet has hindered, rather than helped, those trying to make a living in the arts."
New York Daily News


"A scathing indictment of these tech companies' greed and arrogance."
The Guardian

"A radical remedy."―The Economist

"A necessary book that shows how the Internet revolution has damaged the way we interact as human beings, along with democracy itself."
The Nation


"Taplin brings an informed perspective to his task, and an idiosyncratic background...[his] broader explanation of the upheaval in the music and media industries is illuminating."
Wall Street Journal


"An impassioned new book...Taplin is at his strongest when he pulls back the curtain on vague and lofty terms such as 'digital disruption' to reveal the effects on individual artists...His prose is bold...his overall point is an important one."―Washington Post


"A solid qualitative and quantitative analysis...most every creator of music and film should welcome the clarion call of Taplin's book."
Forbes.com

"A breakthrough, must-read book...a tour de force...If you want to understand what has happened to our country and where tech will take us in the era of Trump, put aside some time to read this book. It will take your breath away."
AlterNet


"An excellent new book...Taplin makes a forceful and persuasive case that companies like Google and Facebook could employ their powerful artificial intelligence programs to prevent the infringement of existing copyright laws."
Chicago Tribune
