Editorial Reviews

Review

“Standage captures quite beautifully the essence of the human need to connect and interact, both its banality and world-altering power.” ―Publishers Weekly

“A thoroughly fascinating look at the evolution of social media.” ―Booklist, starred review

“Provocative . . . a wealth of information.” ―The New York Times Book Review

“Standage has just this one big point to make, but he makes it elegantly and instructively . . . what we tend to regard as the radiant novelty of the digital age may really be a rebirth.” ―The Wall Street Journal

“Tom Standage once again displays his ingenious gift for connecting our historical past to the debates and technologies of the present day.” ―Steven Johnson, author of Future Perfect and Where Good Ideas Come From
