I wish I’d read this book when I graduated. I wouldn’t have been less lost, but the beautiful voices, stories and experiences in these pages would have helped me understand that, before I could find myself, I had to lose myself first. If you know someone who dreams of something bigger than being part of the rat race, please give them this book.
---Raj Patel, author of The Value of Nothing
Herein lies the real lesson of the Internet. It may not be the one that marketers and investors want to hear, but it's the key to understanding the way people and businesses will be interacting in the peer-to-peer, digital reality. It's also at the heart of the current renaissance - an overturning of the scarcity-based, highly centralized systems that have been in place since the 1300's, and a rebirth of the values that make human society work.>
---Douglas Rushkoff, author, Program or Be Programmed
If you're a well-meaning, well-educated, generous person, and you can feel yourself being cornered and hammered relentlessly by a faceless, wicked, out-of-control economy, then SHARE OR DIE is the book for you.
---Bruce Sterling, blogger, author and journalist
Smart, funny, irreverent, resourceful, committed, visionary these terms come to mind as you read the passionate voices of the first net-native generation. Share or Die! not only depicts and explains the daunting challenges facing young people today, it delivers some very good news: A monsoon of creative, positive energies is already shaping a better future.
