Review

"Readers who fully absorb the more disturbing details of Woyke’s report will never be able to download a new app or listen to a podcast without a twinge or two of consumer guilt."
Booklist

"A smartphone full monty that will appeal mostly to the device's users—all 1.75 billion of them."
Kirkus Reviews

"A well-reported comprehensive overview of the smartphone’s innovators and the challenges surrounding the industry. A deeply worthwhile read for anyone interested in the socioeconomic impact of a device that has become so prevalent in our lives."
—Yukari Iwatani Kane, author of Haunted Empire: Apple After Steve Jobs

"I learned more from Elizabeth Woyke’s The Smartphone than I have from any two or three other books on digital communication I have read in the past few years. A superior reporter, Woyke brilliantly presents a clear-eyed view of this new communication device that has conquered everything in sight. This book is an eye-opener."
—Robert W. McChesney, author of Digital Disconnect
